Rhino 5 New Technology

 

There are ten major new technologies that add more than five hundred new features and enhancements.

  • Universal Deformation Technology™ (UDT)
    This proprietary new technology lets you deform, without constraints, any curves, surfaces, meshes, and solids while maintaining the integrity of the object. Video...
  • History - History aware commands create geometry that can be edited by editing inputs. History recording, updating of history-aware objects, objects with history locking, and warning messages can be toggle on or off. Not all geometry creation commands support history. Video...
  • Feature recognition - There are a group of new editing commands that can automatically select all of the geometry when any part is selected. For example, a hole can be deleted or moved by clicking on any related geometry. Video...
  • Display pipeline - The new display pipeline takes advantage of the latest graphic card technology to provide a major speed improvement, new advanced display modes, real-time rendering, new analysis tools, multiple monitors, and support for new third-party application display modes. The new display pipeline also provides support for user-configured display schemes. Video...
  • SmartTrack™ - A system of temporary reference lines and points drawn in the Rhino viewport using implicit relationships among various 3-D points, other geometry in space, and the coordinate axes' directions. Video...
  • G-infinity™ - Provides designers with the tools to interactively adjust the shape of the blends while maintaining continuity beyond G2. Video...

  • Filleting and blending - Enhancements include continuity control between G0 and G4, new cross-section position and shape controls, fillet rail styles controls for Rolling ball, Distance from Edge, and Distance between Rails. Video...
  • Intersection - Speed improved and more Boolean special cases are handled.
  • Toolbars and docking - Toolbars and docking mechanisms have been completely rewritten. Docking toolbars, the command prompt, layer, properties, and other controls easier and more reliable.
  • 2-D drawing/drafting tools including line styles, line weights, hidden lines, dimensions, hatching, page layout and printing/plotting. Video...
