Rhinoceros is a 3d modeling commercial software.The software is particularly based on nurbs which is a mathematical model,used to create curves,planes and surfaces in computer graphics.Rhinoceros has created a tool called parametric modeller which has attracted many architects.The ability to open many file formats has also been positively met with a very high number of applauses.New file which want to be opened by the software are opened in a file named untitled inorder to allow for its conversion.


1.Run the exe file as admin and once the setup wizard appears click on next.

2.Read the license agreement and click next if you agree.

3.The custom information is not useful just enter any name and click next.

4.Now click install to begin the process.

5.Wait for the installation to complete.

6.Once the installation is done click finsh.Go to the icon created to open rrhinoceros(note it might take a while for it to open)

7.Once it opens a dialog box will be displayed with the rhinoceros title.


The fact that it holds mathematical properties makes this advantageous to architects and not just any 3d creator.Like milkshape,rhinoceros also has faces which is devided into four part to help in visualising all the areas.Great for total proffessionals and not beginners


  • graphics rendered are very good
  • support for parametric is useful to architects
  • doesnt require alot of download bundles


  • rhinoceros isnt at all userfriendly
  • only comes in trial versions
Ease to access guides and manuals:




For what are you going to use the program?
  • I am using the cad package to start extending and adding to my portfolio of work. Aimed mainly at architectural and drafting drawings. Such as floor plans and elevations.

  • I will use it for study engeneering, if i can manage it I wil be to buy one. I Hope is usefull nd easyer Than others like Solid Work System

  • Want to try grasshopper before buying license. Not a usual rhino user, as a freelancer architect for personal projects and software updating

  • architecture and mainly 3d modeling, because i am a student who really needs it. And my 90 days version has already expired, saddly. and that ir

  • I am going to use it for educational and academic purposes as an architecture postgraduate stundent, for 3d modelling at projects for studios

What similar programs have you used?
  • sketch up, illustrator, photoshop, indesign, all design's programs necessary for art school; also cinema 4d and i have rhinceros courses ins school to practice

  • this is the frist programe as designing software i have seen so far, therefore, i hope to injoy and build my projects with this Rhinocers now

  • I haven't used any other similar programs. I learnt about this package on Youtube clip for extracting a surface from Google earth and Sketchup

  • Autodesk 3d max 2012 version with vray 2.3 rendering engine. I use this for almost 8 years and now I shift to another 3d software like rhino

  • SketchUp, Autodesk 3dsMax and AutoCAD are mostly used in our office for architectural concepts and designs, and presentations. I'll try this

What do you like most about this program?
  • best user interface and when i try to use it was very much comportable as comparision to any of other softaware which i been used till date for solid works.

  • Mainly it UI and simlpicity, friendly for beginners like me. Fits for making assets which I mostly do actually I HAVENT used it till now so

  • most useful for modelling some things. I like this program because it is accurate. My hobbies is connected to the rhinoceros. good luck. bye

  • ability to do anything and infinity to design and structure, we can show all architecture in it without concern about the program designs and

  • With Rhino 3d I got the best value for money in comparison to others with so many features, functions and interface options to work in threeD


Rhinoceros 5 is the newest version of the 3d design software based on NURBS. Created as an add-on for Autodesk’s AutoCAD the program is normally used for architecture, naval and industrial design and even for jewellery art. It is the perfect solution for realistic modelling and can be implemented with different programs for photorealistic rendering (Flamingo), non-realistic rendering (Penguin) and animation (Bongo).

Rhinoceros is one of the most popular 3d software due to its multiple applications and diversity, its multiple options to import and export files and mostly because it is one of the cheapest 3d design programs.

How to use

Rhinoceros’ developers (Robert McNeel & Associates) have spent the last five years trying to enhance all the Rhino 4 workflow problems. The result is that Rhinoceros 5.0 is quicker, more stable and able to manage bigger models and projects. 40.000 beta users have tested and improved the product to create a better tool for 3d design.

The new version has released a new interface and visual modules and now it is quite similar to CAD software. Apart from that, there are more than 3.500 improvements on modelling, edition and an enhanced widget gumball. The complex model edition is now easier and faster thanks to new commands, sub-object manipulation and more commands have history support.

The render options have a new high-quality render that can be improved with multiple plug-ins for better material, texture, environments and light results. The improvements continue with the 2-d design. Rhinoceros 5 offers all kind of drafting and printing options to make illustrations and drawings, for every discipline, as easier as possible.

Rhino 5.0 can work over 64-bit and, thanks to its enhanced support for graphic co-processors, it is the perfect combination for 3-D digitizing hardware and 3-D scanned point cloud data. The new developer’s idea is to improve users and third-party developers’ cooperation, to obtain one of the most interactive products ever seen. Rhino 5.0, the product you don’t have to worry about. Feel free to focus on designing and let the software do its job.
