Great Tool - Imperfect Help
Review posted April 5, 2014
For this serious hobbyist, scratch building large scale model cars, the promise of 3D printing is enormous. So the choice was to join the CAD community or be stuck in the past. I looked at numerous CAD programs, but settled on Rhino because of its ability to model complex curved surfaces.
Rhino has turned out to be a great choice, despite the cost. After a couple of weeks of experimenting I was confident enough of the basics to begin modeling.
I found the Rhino tutorials to be useful, but limited. They are primarily tool based, rather than app based, so figuring out how to model a complex shape generally goes beyond the level of the tutorials. Likewise, I found very little Rhino help for dealing with the challenges of 3D printing. This is a non-trivial issue which I fortunately stumbled over early on. The online advice I found elsewhere saved me a lot of re-design work. A specific Rhino tutorial to deal with this issue would have been really helpful.

We are heavy users of Rhino. We do technical illustrations for oil and gas equipment. Rhino is easy to use and has the tools sets that we need.

Quatlity software, training guide not required.
Review posted March 31, 2011
Sales Experience:

I bought Rhino and one of the training guides. When I received the product both training guides come on a CD. Had I been aware of this beforehand I would not have bought the printed guide.


The product is easy to use and I have been productive using it, almost since day 1.

Product cons:

It would be nice if basic parametric editing was included as a part of the core product.

Review posted October 26, 2009
Rhino has a great interface and functions for modeling in 3D, I couldn't be happier, I also love the ease of generating 2 sections from 3D objects. My only criticism would be the lack of control of the display of dimensions - I am used to the flexibility that AutoCAD provides in the display of dimensions, leaders, etc., and Rhino has some catching up to do in this department. Otherwise, Rhino is outstanding and has some remarkable functionality for the price.

Review posted April 14, 2009
I'm still learning the program but have used Alias for the prior eight years and that helps with the transition. The major difference is that there is limited history built into Rhino which I guess accounts for the more affordable price but changes the way one constructs objects; you need to save often.

Overall Rhino has plenty of capability and the interface is pretty much straightforward if you're at all familiar with 3D modeling programs. The Help does include short videos that make it easier to understand vs. reading just text.

Novedge delivered the product very quickly and had a very good price.

Excellent Product. A little hard to learn, but the unlimited capabilities is well worth it.

Review posted July 16, 2007
Have only just began learning Rhino. The program seems very powerful and have had a frustrating, but great time and a lot of fun finding my way around. Am in the process of financing rapid prototyping milling machine for jewellery purposes. Rhino drives this device and is part of the package, so essential I use these early tutorials to get a bit of a head start. Will review again further down the line. Thanks for the free trial download.
