New in Rhino 8
Rhino 8 adds dozens of refinements to existing tools and some new ones:

  • ShrinkWrap:
    Create a watertight mesh around any geometry, ideal for 3D printing.
  • SubD Creases:
    For designers who need to explore organic shapes quickly, SubD is a new geometry type that can create editable, highly accurate shapes. Unlike other geometry types, SubD combines free-form accuracy while still allowing quick editing.
  • Built for Mac:
    Blazingly fast 3D drawing, a massive speed boost for Mac users.

Modeling Simplified:
Combine new tools to quickly sketch your idea in 3D.
Grab a face and push or pull it, extruding or extending. PushPull speeds up modeling by using curves to add or remove volumes from existing surfaces.
The move, scale, and rotate widget gets new grips for extending and extruding.
Surface Fillets:
FilletSrf has a new UI with dynamic radius previews.
Offset can now create multiple closed regions.

Rhino Overview
Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces and solids, subdivision geometry (SubD), point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware.

Special features include:

  • Uninhibited free-form 3D modeling 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.

Every type of physical product design relies on technical illustration and 2D drawing to concisely communicate ideas, specifications, and instructions to people in design, development, and fabrication. Our goal for Rhino was to make it easier to create 2D drawings and illustrations for every discipline in every notation system and visual style used worldwide.

Annotation objects include arrows, dots, dimensions (horizontal, vertical, aligned, rotated, radial, diameter, angle), text blocks, leaders, hidden line removal, Unicode (double-byte) support for text, dimensions, and notes. Dimensions in perspective views are supported.

In Rhino 8, we’ve added…

  • Linetypes: Draw stylized curves with pattern, width, and taper to communicate design or artistic flair.
  • Reflected Ceiling Plans: A reflected parallel projection viewport mode, perfect for RCPs.
  • Dynamic 2D Drawings: Section Styles: Clipping planes and section styles give more control when using clipping planes.

Digital Fabrication

As you may know, the Rhino development project started more than 25 years ago to provide marine designers with tools for building computer models that could be used to drive the digitally controlled fabrication equipment used in shipyards.

We continue to focus on the fact that designs are only useful once they are built and in the hands of consumers. With the cost of digital fabrication and 3D printing technology dropping quickly, more and more designers now have direct access to 3D digital fabrication equipment.

In Rhino 8, try out…

  • ShrinkWrap: ShrinkWrap creates a watertight mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS geometry, SubD, and point clouds: ideal for creating meshes for 3D printing.
  • Sectioning for Fabrication: Support for extracting curves, hatches, surfaces, and slices of clipping planes.

Mesh Tools

Robust mesh import, export, creation, and editing tools are critical to all phases of design, including:

  • Transferring captured 3D data from digitizing and scanning into Rhino as mesh models.
  • Exchanging mesh data with many applications such as SketchUp® and Modo®.
  • Exporting meshes for analysis, rendering, prototyping, and fabrication.
  • Converting NURBS to meshes for display and rendering.

QuadRemesh: Quickly create a quad mesh from existing surfaces, solids, meshes, or SubDs—ideal for rendering, animation, CFD, FEA, and reverse engineering.

In Rhino 8, test out…

  • Improved Mesh Booleans: Completely rewritten and more reliable Mesh Booleans.
  • ShrinkWrap: ShrinkWrap creates a watertight mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS geometry, SubD, and point clouds: ideal for creating meshes for 3D printing.

3D Capture

Capturing existing 3D data is often one of the first steps in a design project. Rhino has always directly supported both 3D digitizing hardware and 3D scanned point cloud data. Rhino now supports:

  • Large point clouds. 3D scanners have become faster and cheaper, making huge scan files more common.
  • Rhino’s 64-bit support and enhanced support for graphic co‑processors have made working with these large point clouds possible.
  • LiDAR captures 3D terrain data for agriculture, archaeology, conservation, geology, land use planning, surveying, and transportation, plus wind farm, solar farm, and cell tower deployment optimization. Rhino for Windows has robust support for plugins, such as RhinoTerrain™, that provide specialty tools for these new Rhino users.
  • 3D digitizing support: Microscribe®, FaroArm®, and ROMER – Windows only.

Inspection and Analysis

Design realization requires high‑quality 3D models in every phase of design, presentation, analysis, and fabrication. Rhino includes tools to help ensure that the 3D models used throughout your process are of the highest possible quality.

Analysis: point, length, distance, angle, radius, bounding box, normal direction, area, area centroid, area moments, volume, volume centroid, volume moments, hydrostatics, surface curvature, geometric continuity, deviation, nearest point, curvature graph on curves and surfaces, naked edges, working surface analysis viewport modes (draft angle, zebra stripe, environment map with surface color blend, show edges, show naked edges, Gaussian curvature, mean curvature, and minimum or maximum radius of curvature).

New in Rhino 8:

  • Curvature Analysis: Now supports SubDs.
  • Draft Angle Analysis: Allows using Named CPlanes, a smarter CPlane Z option, and automatically sets direction when switching options.
  • Point Deviation: Now supports SubDs and shows red numbers when invalid distances are entered.

Large Projects

File management tools for managing large projects and teams include Notes, templates, merge files, export selected objects, save small, incremental save, bitmap file preview, Rhino file preview, export with origin point, work sessions (Windows only), blocks, file compression for meshes and preview images.


Rhino is compatible with hundreds of CAD, CAM, CAE, rendering, and animation products. The openNURBS libraries allow hundreds of other applications to read and write Rhino’s native 3DM files.

In addition, Rhino 8 now supports:

  • USD Export: Universal Scene Description, an extensible format commonly used in visualization applications.
  • GLTF Import/Export: GL Transmission Format, useful for sharing 3D models on the web using WebGL.
  • Improved support for many formats.


Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor included with Rhino.

Unlike RhinoScript, Rhino.Python, or other programming languages, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting but still allows developers and designers to develop form-generation algorithms without writing code.

New in Grasshopper 1 in Rhino 8:

  • Object Attributes: Manage Rhino object attributes directly from Grasshopper.
  • Annotations: Document your design with Grasshopper’s annotation, hatch, and line type components.
  • Blocks: Create block definitions and instances in Grasshopper.
  • Live Baking: Live update existing Rhino objects from Grasshopper.
  • UserText: Add, modify, or remove user text from any Rhino object.
