Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, scan data, or only an idea – Rhino provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.

Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate  NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids with no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds.

Rhino was available for the Windows platform so far but Rhino for OS X development has begun. The major technical challenges have been overcome, but there are still many months of work left to do.

There is a new build available, Wenatchee 2008-10-21, with the following changes:

Bug fixes: Zooming a viewport with the scroll wheel works again. The Command Options dialogs were reworked. This fixed the OrientOnSrf command and the “between” command option when selecting points. The Contour command is available again. Some crash bugs have been fixed. The problem of white bands when rendering may be fixed. Since the banding was an intermittent problem, it is difficult to know if it is completely fixed..
