With Spaces for Rhino, users can launch an interactive stream of their Rhino model directly into their Spaces meeting room and conveniently invite others to interact with the 3D model.
This means no downloads, no installations, and no limitations on the number of collaborators viewing a project at the same time.
Freeform surface modelling empowers designers to create class A surfaces
Attentive customer service and educational content provide an enhanced user experience
In fact, the function-specific guides and tutorials allow even novice users to quickly progress from creating tablets to designing cars.
Food4Rhino plug-in marketplace makes the software expansive
The only constant is change, and in business this adage is especially true. Expansiveness is an important concept for commercial software buyers to understand. It refers to a piece of software’s ability to accommodate additional tools and functionalities outside of its specific toolbox.
Designers can access several plug-ins from the Food4Rhino marketplace to expand on the software’s core functionality depending on project needs. For instance, a Rhino user in the architectural industry may install the Lands Design plug-in which supports the creation of green spaces and landscapes while a jeweler may use the AuroraJewels plug-in.

Users frequently mention Rhino’s openness to third-party plug-ins as one of the big draws of the software. This versatility encourages the robust Rhino3D community to continue creating new plug-ins, exponentially enhancing the functionality and usefulness of the tool overall.
Efficient system decreases the risk of crashes and data loss
Complex design projects require ample CPU, GPU and memory usage, increasing the likelihood of a system crash for users without high-performance computers. Some programs crash more than others, leading to lost or corrupted files and delaying a project by weeks while you switch programs and start from scratch.
Compared to other CAD software, Rhino receives more praise for its stability and “lightness”. Since Rhino focuses on surface modelling rather than solid modelling, it uses less computing power therefore reducing the likelihood of crashes and lost work.
While the tool you choose ultimately comes down to what you’re trying to model, rendering projects in the auto design, jewelry, and architecture industry that require mainly aesthetic solutions benefit from the efficient modelling offered by Rhino3D.
Perpetual license-based business model provides a cost-effective alternative to pricey SaaS CADs
Reports of the perpetual license’s death have been greatly exaggerated. While we’re living in an increasingly post-perpetual licenses world, Rhino stills offers this oldie but goodie. As a result, Rhino requests a more attractive up-front fee for users who want a one-and-done approach to their software purchases rather than the ongoing subscription fees associated with a SaaS business model.
At present, commercial creators can purchase Rhino 6 for Windows for $995 USD and Rhino 5 for Mac for $695 USD while students receive a steep discount that slashes the price of Rhino for both operating systems down to $195 USD.
Moreover, these prices include customer support and ongoing service releases. Just because Rhino users don’t pay a subscription fee, doesn’t mean they miss out on ongoing customer care and customer satisfaction efforts.
Decreases onboarding time by providing a user-friendly interface
Back in 2014, there was much talk about the un-user-friendliness of CAD technology. According to observers, these platforms were designed for experts and engineers trained to navigate sophisticated tools, therefore making CAD end products, like 3D print outs, inaccessible to everyday users.
In other words, they created a missing link between technology and creation.
Not anymore. Today, CAD program designers prioritize user friendliness to make their tools more accessible to a wider range of users.
As CAD applications and 3D configuration extend to more industries, it’ll be essential for CAD programs to be available to users with non-engineering backgrounds.
Customers report that Rhino is a particularly user-friendly tool for 3D modeling. Moreover, it’s easy for new users to learn thanks to its intuitive layout, decreasing onboarding time for non-technical users.
These benefits combined with the energy of the Rhino community, makes us excited to offer Spaces for Rhino. Above all, we can’t wait to see how designers use real-time collaboration to introduce new players to their projects, share creations with large audiences, and take their 3D configurations to the next level.
