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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
for making a 3d sketch of an architecture building, for an exercice in my college, because is easier than doing it with your own hands and pencils
I am getting this program because I am taking a course at school that uses it. I need it to complete my homework. The fact you have to type so much is annoying.
i wnt- this programe for design and i will to be an big desiner in the world by using that verry nive program so thanks to give it to me tha
I am an architecture student who wants to use this program to model and render different projects. I really hope i can download it succesfully
educational purpose for architectural studies at ucsi university for modeling buildings and conceptualization we nedd curvy model thus rhino is the best
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
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 have used a variety through several different jobs including autocad, ship constructor, land desktop development, excell, access, word, civil 3-d, catia, pro-engineer
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
. i just trying to find some programms o complete the design of my prodctio wines plant and for give me a chance ,thats gonna be special for my project
All my frends are using it, so we can better communicate with eatch other about te things we like to create for our 3 D printer in our hobbyshop.
modern and advanced to use compared to other softwares best for curvilinear forms and does a great job in rendering and time taken is less comparitively
feasibility is very good.options are nice.very good to understand.well famous amongst jewellery desugner.helpful to students.i would like to buy on completion of my course
IT FLEXIBLITY, EASY USE AND THE EASY ABILITY TO CREATE CURVES FORMS. ABLE TO DO EVRYTHING IN ONE PROGRAM LIKE, SECTION, PLANS, ELEVATION, PERSPECTIVE.

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
