Rhino 5.0 90-Day Evaluation Download
With over 2000 enhancements to the software- this is the most anticipated release of Rhino to date. Be the first to use this software by download this 90 evaluation version here.
This fully functional version is the same as the commercial version for the first 90 days after installation. After that it is still fully functional, except it will not save, and will not load plug-ins. It will still work great to learn Rhino and as a viewer for Rhino and many other file formats.
ReconstructMe (3D scanning using a Windows or Xbox Kinect):
The Kinect is the motion detection hardware originally build for gaming with the Xbox 360. The source code for it has been made public for the device and new developments for the Kinect have gone viral. The Kinect can effectively be used as a 3D scanner, which has enabled 3D scanning to be available to the every day consumer.
ReconstructMe is a powerful and easy to use 3d reconstruction system. It employs breakthrough technologies to capture 3D models mesh models of physical objects real-time.
GOM Inspect (Mesh editing and hole filling and inspection):
One of industries best kept secrets, GOM Inspect is an inspection and mesh processing software for dimensional analysis of 3D point clouds and viewer. This is the most capable professional mesh editing and cleanup and alignment software on the planet!Originally developed exclusively for GOM ATOS 3D scanners and costing well over $10K but now this class leading fully functional software is absolutely free!
Grasshopper (Rhino Plug-in):
It is hard to define what Grasshopper is, as it is capable of so many different things, but is worth checking out. For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.
Note that you need the most recent Microsoft Runtimes to be able to load Grasshopper in Rhino4. You can download the latest runtimes from the Microsoft Website, and be sure to get the 32-bit ones (vcredist_x86.EXE).
Grasshopper 0.8 is the current stable build. It requires at least Rhino4 SR8.
Paneling Tools (Rhino Plug-in):
PanelingTools is a plug-in for Rhino 4.0 that supports designing and modeling paneling
patterns. It also rationalizes NURBS surfaces and polysurfaces. Amazing stuff!
