Including major enhancements to: Rhino Renderer, Materials, textures, and environments, Views (Cameras), Lighting, Mesh modifiers, Post-rendering modifiers, Animation
Drafting and Printing
For almost every type of physical product design, technical illustration and 2-D drawing are used to concisely communicate ideas, specifications, and instructions to people in design, development, and fabrication. Our goal for Rhino 5 for Windows is to make it easier to create 2-D drawings and illustrations for every discipline in every notation system and visual style used around the world. Major areas of enhancement include: More control over annotation styles, History support for dimensions, Text field in text and leaders, Area and curve length dimensions, Revision clouds, Isometric views, Draw order, More page layout controls, Print calibration, High-res viewport capture
There are both new and enhanced mesh tools, plus support for double-precision meshes to accurately represent and display ground forms such as the 3-D topography of a large city.
3-D Capture
Rhino 3D has always directly supported both 3-D digitizing hardware and 3-D scanned point cloud data. Rhino's 64-bit support and enhanced support for graphic co-processors has made it possible to work with these large point clouds. LIDARcaptures 3-D terrain data for agriculture, archaeology, conservation, geology, land use planning, surveying, transportation, plus wind farm, solar farm, and cell tower deployment optimization. In addition, Rhino 5 for Windows added robust support for plug-ins, such as Rhino Terrain, that provide specialty tools for these new Rhino users.
Rhino 5 for Windows includes 9 new tools and more than 15 enhancements to help ensure that the 3-D models used throughout your process are the highest possible quality.
