REVIEW

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.

CONCLUSION

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

Pros

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

Cons

  • rhinoceros isnt at all userfriendly
  • only comes in trial versions

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

For what are you going to use the program?
  • hobby drafting, designing cool jewelry, experimenting with solids and rendering models. also using for reverse engineering blueprints i find

  • I have to use this software for my study course. i studyproduct design at politecnico di milano e we have just started practising this program

  • educational purpose for architectural studies at ucsi university for modeling buildings and conceptualization we nedd curvy model thus rhino is the best

  • During my First semester i liked how we were able to render our 3d drawings. The sun command helped me allot with capturing the shadows. I also enjoyed adding people and trees.

  • I am a student in a program that does not give us this software. I will be teaching myself this for educational purposes to better my portfolio.

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

  • 3DS MAX revit and cinema 4d such software which will make the 3d industry as much to the realisting pahse as compared to the other ones are nice

  • 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

  • 3ds max, revit, autocad are the programms I have used most of the times while working in my professional practice, here in United Kingdom and abroad

  • I haven't used any similar programs like this rhinoceros, I need to download this because this is required by my professor and we will use it

What do you like most about this program?
  • 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

  • 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.

  • you my dear really? what do you gain by this stupidity? Oh my, eighty five characters left. Let me guess, next I will get an error for excee

  • The software is cool to use and easy to navigate to achieve one's set objectives. I am quite a novice in 3d designs so might not have technical details to comment on.

  • i've used this package before and feel comfortable with it. It allows you to model using computers that does not require very intensive processing power.

Review

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.
