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.


Create a watertight mesh around any geometry, ideal for 3D printing.

ShrinkWrap is ideal for creating:

  • Meshes for 3D printing.
  • A solid union mesh from multiple objects.
  • A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments.
  • Meshes without internal self-intersections.
  • Offset meshes for shelling.
  • Meshes from point clouds when reverse engineering.
  • Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry.

Modeling Simplified

Rhino’s model creation tools make it flexible, accurate, open, and very popular.

Rhino 8 adds new features to make modeling more playful and accessible. Combining these tools reduces friction for common solid creation/editing tasks. This allows you to stay in a single-perspective view while modeling.

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.

Accurate, organic modeling just got easier. Push and pull to explore complex, free-form shapes in real-time.

SubD objects are highly accurate and can be converted directly to manufacturable solids. You can also convert scan or mesh data into SubD objects, then optionally to NURBS.

Built for Mac: Metal

Blazingly fast 3D drawing, a massive speed boost for Mac users.

Rhino for Mac is now faster than ever on Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. Powered by Metal, our new display pipeline delivers hardware-accelerated graphics for high frame rates and large resolutions.

Even in complex, detailed models—especially those with lots of lines, curves, hatches, and annotations—you can now pan, zoom, and orbit fluidly without dropping frames. Depending on your model, speed increases can be 24 times or more.

The updated Cycles Render Engine is also built on Metal, speeding up the Raytraced display mode and the Rhino Render engine.

Metal is supported in all display modes.

  • Modeling Simplified: Combine new tools to quickly sketch your idea in 3D.
  • PushPull: 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.
  • Gumball: The move, scale, and rotate widget gets new grips for extending and extruding.
  • SubD: SubD Creases are great for making fillet-like features.
  • Surface Fillets: FilletSrf has a new UI with dynamic radius previews.
  • Offset: Offset can now create multiple closed regions.

In Rhino 8, we’ve added…


Digital Fabrication

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.

While we are not experts on all the fabrication, manufacturing, or construction processes, we do focus on ensuring that Rhino models can be accurate enough for and accessible to all the processes involved in a design becoming a reality.

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

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

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

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

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.
