Rhino 8 - the most powerful NURBS 3D CAD Industrial Design and modeling tool from Robert McNeel. Rhino 8 for Windows and Mac is the best industrial design modeling software, architectural design and CAD. Complicated shapes can be directly modeled with Rhino 8 or acquired through 3D digitizers. Thanks to the most powerful NURBS based engine you can create, edit, analyze, and translate curves, surfaces, and solids. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size.

Rhinoceros 8 also supports polygon meshes and point clouds for complete coverage of geometric data types. With its unparalleled NURBS modeling power this Software lets you focus on designing, not on cumbersome modeling workarounds.

Rhino 8 brings new modeling tools like ShrinkWrap, a huge speed boost for Mac users, SubD Creases, PushPull workflows, better drafting tools, a more customizable User Interface, a faster Render engine, new Grasshopper data types, and much more.

  • ShrinkWrap: Turn Garbage To Gold. ShrinkWrap creates a watertight mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS geometry, SubD, and point clouds: ideal for creating meshes for 3D printing.
  • Built for Mac. Rhino for Mac is faster than ever, running natively on both Apple Silicon and Intel Macs, and using the Apple Metal display technology. We’ve also brought the User-Interface on Mac closer to its Windows sibling.
  • SubD Creases. SubD Creases create a feature between a smooth and a sharp edge, without adding complexity to the SubD control net, great for making fillet-like features.
  • Modeling: Simplified. Rhino 8 unlocks new modeling workflows — like PushPull — and adds intuitive new features to the Gumball, Automatic CPlanes, and more.
  • Clipping and Sectioning. Rhino 8 introduces a number of clipping and sectioning enhancements to help support various drafting and fabrication workflows.
  • Presentation. In Rhino 8, we’ve updated the Cycles Render engine, smoothed out the UV Workflow, improved our procedural textures, added a display mode, and more.
  • Grasshopper: Rhino Data Types. Rhino Data Types allow you to bake geometry with custom attributes, import more file formats, control blocks, use native materials in the display pipeline, create hatches and annotations, and many other expanded workflows.
  • Rhino Refined. We’ve fixed hundreds of bugs, but we’ve also added new Linetypes, improved Mesh Booleans, enhanced our surface editing tools, and more.
  • Development Platform. Rhino 8 brings a new code editor, support for CPython and .NET 7, major improvements to our free SDKs, with API refinements, and some major new features that broaden and deepen the foundations of the geometry development platform.
