McNeel releases Rhino 5 for Mac

McNeel releases Rhino 5 for Mac

Following a long beta testing phase, McNeel & Associates has released the Mac OSX version of Rhino, the popular NURBS modeling software.



First launched in 1998, Rhino (or Rhinoceros) has gained a strong popularity among architects and designers as a flexible CAD/3D content creation package, and one of the few affordable alternatives to surface modelers like ICEM Surf and Alias for the creation of high-quality aesthetic geometry suitable for manufacturing.

The Mac OSX version has been in the works for several years now, and has finally been released in the past days. The company decided to create a different, more Mac-like interface, in order to make it more appealing for OSX users.

Compared to Rhino 5 for Windows, Rhino 5 for Mac lacks some of the advanced features, like Plug-in Support, Layouts, Worksessions, and Animation Tools, which are currently planned for future updates, that will be available as free updates for all Rhino 5 for Mac users.

At the moment, however, there isn’t a timeline for adding support to the popular Grasshopper plug-in.

The smaller features set is balanced by a lower price point: Rhino 5 for Mac is priced at $495 / €495, while the Windows version of Rhino retails for $/€ 995.

There is a limited-time introductory price of US$/€ 295 for those who decide to buy it before September 15, 2015.

It is also possible to download a 90-day fully functional trial version. For more information visit rhino3d.com.
