Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video What is Rhino for Mac?, part of Rhino for Mac Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Rhinoceros 3D for Mac or Rhino for short is a great example of a hybrid 3D modeler. Hybrid modelers like Rhino offer a mix of two different modeling styles in one package. We have Surface Modeling which allows us to make very detailed, visually interesting 3D shapes and Solid Modeling which is generally more precise and geared to modeling things that will exist in real life. Rhino uses a combination of surfaces and solids to create 3D models and it works quite well with both. It also works with polygonal or Mesh Models allowing for applications like 3D printing, 3D scanning and imports from other 3D programs.
This gives us a flexible approach to modeling that allows for a more intuitive workflow. Rhino's also great for many other things that come along with solid and surface modeling tools that includes rendering, drafting, surface analysis, physics simulations just to name a few. Rhino's widely used and its architecture allows for third-party plugins that extend its use to all sorts of other areas like CNC toolpathing, jewelry design, mold making, animation and many others. Rhino is easy to learn, even for someone with no 3D modeling experience and best of all, with the recent release of Rhino 5 for Mac, Rhino is now available for both Windows and OS X.
