Rhinoceros (Rhino3D v5) is an all round 3D freeform surface modeling product used worldwide by designers, engineers, architects and manufacturers. Rhino and Rhino3D are some of the common names people refer to this well know product made by McNeel & Associates for the Windows operating system. However, a version for Apple OSX is under development and available for free field testing and use.

Some customers use Rhino for every part of their design process, others use it as a compliment to their own CAD or CAM system. Its so affordable you can use with most things.

As one of McNeel's european resellers we choose to supply the Rhino solutions and services that compliment the core products that we supply to both commercial and educational markets. We are not a shop selling everything, as we feel we cannot give everything our best attention, which dilutes the efforts of working closely with you the customer.
For more information and prices, please give us a call on 01784 466 474 or contact us by email.

With its unparalleled modelling power Rhino lets you focus on designing, not on cumbersome modelling workarounds.

Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea and Rhino provides with the tools to accurately model your designs ready for all types for applications. Rhino needs only your imagination and a reasonable computer.

Rhinoceros 3D is currently in version 5.0 and there are a host of add ons available free on the Rhino sites Labs section. There is no point us duplicating the wealth of information that McNeel has prepared, so feel free to look at their web site www.rhino3D.com as well, we have no secrets to hide !.
logo If you are designing and producing rapid prototypes or custom models there are so many useful tools to make your life easier and happier. Plus you can export your downstream to any other process.

Rendering. Within Rhinoceros you can change the colours of all your design elements and produce rendered pictures of your designs.

If you want to add that element of realism with near photographic colours, shadows etc, then McNeel produce various rendering packages that plug-in to Rhino. Of course there are lots of 3rd party solutions for the perfectionist, but the key solutions that you can purchased separately if you have Rhino3D or as combined bundles are:- Flamingo nXt to provide realistic colours that are near to real as you would hope for, or Penguin is a non-photorealistic rendering solution that turns your precise designs into hand draw images. To give your designs motion to explain how mechanisms work, then Bongo is the perfect affordable key-frame animator.

Digitising and Reverse Engineering, require that extra knowledge with hardware and software. If you need a MicroScribe digitizer then it runs inside Rhino on all versions. For reverse engining scan data have a look at RhinoReverse by iCapp. Plus for mechanical shapes the Mesh2Surface plug-in from ADA 3D is really simple to use.
