Rhino for Mac, sometimes referred to as Rhino for OSX, differs in some key areas to the Rhino3d for Windows product, please contact us for details.
Rhino3d for Windows is one of the most widely used 3D modelling applications in the world. Popular with designers, architects, engineers, artists and manufacturers - there is simply nothing to equal Rhino in terms of price and performance. Now this powerful modelling application is available for Mac OSX.
Rhino is popular across a broad range of industries including architecture, jewellery, marine design, product design, film and TV, exhibition design, point of sale and transportation. Highly accurate technical surfaces and solids shared with customers and colleagues via a wide range of common file types and Rhino has all the tools required to create 2D production documentation when necessary. Rhino natively supports 3D printing and rapid prototyping and all 3D printers or 3D print bureaus will accept output from Rhino.
Rhino for Mac has been designed from the outset to look and feel like a true Mac application. The interface of Rhino3d for Windows and Rhino for Mac are purposely very different - a real 3D working environment is accessible within the comfort of the Mac interface. Unrestrained modelling tools allow the user to model anything that can be imagined regardless of shape, complexity or size. Work freely with 2D or 3D curves, surfaces solids and meshes; import existing models, geometry, photographic references or sketches via a vast range of file types. Rhino’s non-prescriptive workflow ensures that designers can model in an individual and unencumbered manner whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy. Besides the 3D environment, Rhino has a full set of 2D tools suitable for both initial design layout and production drafting.
Some notes from the Rhino for Mac Product Manager - Dan Belcher, McNeel - “Rhino is used in so many different industries; where there’s freeform shapes, there’s Rhino. It has a robust set of solid, mesh, and analysis tools. It has stylistic display modes that make it clear, fast, and fun to get things visualized. It’s compatible with so many different products...the go-to software for interoperability. Support is free and human-scale - no silly tickets and bureaucracy - not to mention the user community that has built up over the years. Rhino has become the platform for so many creative projects and we are excited to bring it to the Mac. We think that experienced modelers and OS X users will feel right at home.”
Rhino is relatively easy to learn. Simply Rhino have a wide range of training solutions for Rhino designed to shorten the learning curve and provide industry specific workflow solutions.
Finally, Rhino is extremely competitively priced and there are no annual maintenance or support fees.
Are you completely new to Rhino for Mac? Then watch the Rhino for Mac tutorial video series our trainer Sean has put together which covers the very basics you need to start your journey with Rhino3d on the Mac. In the first video Sean introduces you to Absolute Coordinates, Relative Coordinates and Distance Angle Constraint.
The Zoo is a Network License Manager which allows Rhino for Windows and / or Rhino for Mac users to Float / Share their Licences on their network. The same network tool supports Flamingo, Penguin, and Bongo licenses plus some plug-ins from 3rd party developers such as RhinoGold & RhinoNest.
The Zoo is typically used where there are multiple licences being shared across multiple workstations.
When a workgroup node starts, it sends a request for a license key to the Zoo. If there are unused license keys available, a key is assigned to the workstation. When a node shuts down, the key is returned to the Zoo's available license pool.
The Zoo is not the solution for individuals with multiple computers, it is a solution for organisations who have more users than licences.
Setting up Zoo 6:
1. Download and install the Zoo on a single computer on your network
2. The Zoo uses TCP Port 80 (cannot be changed), make sure that port is open
3. Run ZooAdmin, enter Rhino for Windows or Mac License Keys License Keys

Further Notes on Zoo for Rhino for Mac:
If you do not have a Windows system to run the Zoo, then you can use VMWare Fusion Pro, which allows you to run Windows on a Mac.
Zoo for OS X is under development
If you have any questions on The Zoo we’d be happy to help.
Clayoo® is an advanced modelling application with the ability to effortlessly create any form efficiently and accurately, however complex.
“It is like modelling by hand!” – This is the concept of Clayoo®, it doesn’t matter if you start from a sketch, curve or a 3D object. It’s about the ease of pulling, pushing and moving until your idea comes true.
Ideal for designing architecture, jewellery, consumer products, toys, aerospace, marine, furniture, … anyone who needs to create complex freeform shapes should use Clayoo®.
When precision is a must - Clayoo® offers real-time tools to analyse distances, variance, … Likewise, standard Rhino tools such as Draft Angle, Thickness Analysis, … allowing working in Real Time.
Not only modelling, but manufacturing - Clayoo® geometry is perfect for manufacturing prototypes, molds, … By exporting the STL, it automatically generates closed meshes.
Clayoo® becomes essential for “Reverse Engineering” with advanced tools as Retopology, which allows you to create surfaces over digitized objects easily, being able to convert the result in NURBS surfaces.
Unlimited Creation and Modification
