is a powerful 3D modeling software used by professionals in a variety of industries, including design, architecture, and engineering. It's known for its precision and flexibility, allowing users to create highly accurate 3D models with a wide range of features and tools.
One of the standout features of Rhino 3D is its support for NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) modeling. NURBS is a mathematical model that represents 3D geometry using curves and surfaces, and it's widely used in the design and manufacturing industries due to its ability to accurately represent complex shapes. With Rhino 3D, users can easily create, edit, and analyze NURBS geometry, making it a powerful tool for designing and prototyping.
is a visual programming platform for designing, prototyping, and analyzing algorithms. It is included in the 3D modeling software Rhino 3D, and allows users to create complex geometry and data structures through a graphical interface.
One of the key features of Grasshopper3D is its ability to create parametric models, which are models that can be easily modified by changing input parameters. This allows users to quickly explore different design options and test out different scenarios. For example, a user could create a parametric model of a building, and then easily adjust the size, shape, and materials of the building by changing the input parameters.
is an open source project that enables Rhino 3D and Grasshopper to operate within other 64-bit Windows applications.
With Rhino.Inside, users can now:
- Launch Rhino and Grasshopper as an add-in to other applications.
- Control the host application using Grasshopper definitions.
- Use the host's APIs in Rhino and Grasshopper plugins.
- Utilize Rhino's APIs in the host's plugins.
- Create native objects in the host application using Rhino and Grasshopper.
