Rhino can create, edit, analyze, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes. Special features include:
Uninhibited free-form 3-D modelling tools like those found only in products costing 20 to 50 times more. Model any shape you can imagine.
Accuracy needed to design, prototype, engineer, analyze, and manufacture anything from an airplane to jewelry.
Compatibility with all your other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software.
Read and repair extremely challenging IGES files.
Accessible. So easy to learn and use that you can focus on design and visualization without being distracted by the software.
Fast, even on an ordinary laptop computer. No special hardware is needed.
Affordable. Ordinary hardware. Short learning. Priced like other Windows software. No maintenance fees.
Flamingo brings the ray-trace and radiosity rendering to Rhino for Windows.
This plugin (which works only with Rhino on the Windows platform) includes:
Rendering Photometrically accurate images with reflections, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, colour bleeding, shadows, depth of field, depth attenuation, ClearFinish™, and indirect lighting;
Animation Viewpoint animation for walkthroughs and fly-bys, and sunlight animation for shadow studies;
Other features Procedural clouds, fractal-generated 3-D plants, procedural 2-D and 3-D materials, progressive-refinement for quick preview, and extensive material, plant, and background libraries;
Hardware requirements: Flamingo runs inside Rhino and has the same hardware requirements. Rhino with Flamingo runs on ordinary Windows desktop and laptop computers, with:
• Pentium, Celeron, or higher processor. (Dual processors are supported.) • Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP for Intel or AMD.* • 40 MB disk space. • 64 MB RAM. More is recommended. *Rhino and Flamingo will NOT be ported to any other operating systems
