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.

ONE OF THE BEST 3D IMAGE ANIMATING SOFTWARES IN THE MARKET

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.
HOW TO USE
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.
CONCLUSIONThe 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
