McNeel - Rhino 7
Rhinoceros (aka Rhino) is a powerful 3D design software for Windows and Mac which uses NURBS geometry to describe any form regardless of size or complexity. Rhino is commonly used for industrial design as well as for example architecture, furniture and jewellery design.
On this product page, you can buy a new license of Rhino 7, or upgrade your license from a previous version. You also get to choose whether you want a commercial license or an educational license for student or faculty. In other words, you have the following options:
- New commercial license
- New educational license (student/faculty)
- Upgrade of a commercial license to version 7
- Upgrade of an educational license to version 7

The right tools for creating complex surfaces and solids
Rhino allows you to model the most complex surfaces you can imagine. The 3D information can then be exported to a variety of formats for further processing in the visualization and manufacturing process. Start off with a sketch, drawing, model or just an idea – Rhino provides all the tools needed to make models of your products. Then they are ready for rendering, animation, design, analysis and manufacturing. Rhino can create, edit, analyze, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces and solids. There are no restrictions in complexity, extent, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds.
Rhino for both Windows and Mac users
Rhino is multiplatform: the same license can run on Windows and on Mac (but not simultaneously). For using Rhino 6 on Windows and Mac alternatively, licensing through Cloud Zoo or Zoo is required. Standalone installation does not allow it.
Easy to learn
The software’s interface is easy to understand and has distinct icons. Many features and shortcut keys are logically structured which make Rhino easy to learn. As you get more comfortable with the software you can gradually adapt the look of the interface to make it more streamlined and efficient. Rhino’s interactive built-in manual gives you graphical information, such as short videos and text instructions, for each software feature. This makes Rhino a piece of cake to learn, as all you have to do is to click on an icon and watch a short video or quickly read the instructions provided.
Rhino provides an unmatched workflow efficiency, and by combining Rhino with the extra plugin called Flamingo, alternatively an external rendering software such as V-Ray or Maxwell Render, you will be able to easily produce photorealistic visualizations of your models. Non photorealistic renders (cartoon style etc) can be done using the Penguin plugin.
