Rhino 8 [Perpetual] for Windows or Mac.
New in Rhino 8
Rhino 8 brings new modelling tools like ShrinkWrap, a huge speed boost for Mac users, SubD Creases, PushPull workflows, better drafting tools, a more customisable 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.
ShrinkWrap is ideal for creating:
- Meshes for 3D printing.
- A solid union mesh from multiple objects.
- A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments.
- Meshes without internal self-intersections.
- Offset meshes for shelling.
- Meshes from point clouds when reverse engineering.
- Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry.
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…
Rhino for Mac is now faster than ever on Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. Powered by Metal, our new display pipeline delivers hardware-accelerated graphics for high frame rates and large resolutions.
Even in complex, detailed models—especially those with lots of lines, curves, hatches, and annotations—you can now pan, zoom, and orbit fluidly without dropping frames. Depending on your model, speed increases can be 24 times or more.
The updated Cycles Render Engine is also built on Metal, speeding up the Raytraced display mode and the Rhino Render engine. Metal is supported in all display modes.
System Requirements: To use Metal, Rhino requires an Intel or Apple Silicon Mac that can run macOS Monterey 12.4 or later.
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.
Accurate, organic modelling just got easier. Push and pull to explore complex, free-form shapes in real time.
SubD objects are highly accurate and can be converted directly to manufacturable solids. You can also convert scan or mesh data into SubD objects, then optionally to NURBS.
Rhino 8 unlocks new modelling 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…
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…
