What’s New in Rhino 7?

Rhino 7 is the most significant upgrade in Rhino’s history. You can create organic shapes with new SubD tools. Run Rhino and Grasshopper as a Revit® Add-On with Rhino.Inside.Revit. Use the robust QuadRemesh algorithm to create a beautiful quad mesh from NURBS geometry or meshes. With this release, McNeel has unlocked completely new modeling workflows and refined many steadfast features.


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.

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



In Rhino 7, we’ve improved the presentation tools, streamlining the workflow with a major update to the Rhino Render engine, so the same look you get in your Raytraced viewport can be rendered without any changes. We’ve added support for PBR materials, a LayerBook command, and more…

PBR Materials
Physically Based Rendering Materials are beautiful and easy to use.

Denoisers produce high-quality renderings in a fraction of the time

Emissive Materials
Create self-lit objects commonly found in consumer electronics.

Light Falloff
Specifies how lighting intensity changes when light travels in the scene.

Present ideas quickly with LayerBook.

Gradient and Transparent Hatches
Create attractive 2D representations in a few steps.

Rhino Refined

In Rhino 7, we’ve fixed hundreds of bugs, but we’ve also added workflow improvements like Named Selections, Mold Making tools, a Single-Line font for engraving, and improved interoperation with third-party file formats…

Named Selections
Quickly save and restore previously selected objects

Mold Making Tools
For mold makers and tool designers, Rhino’s makes the model-test-revise …

Single-Line Fonts
Improve the speed and quality of CNC engravings.

Supported File Formats
In Rhino 7, we’ve improved fidelity for existing formats and support for SubD where possible.


We are always refining Rhino’s display pipeline to keep up with modern graphics hardware. In Rhino 7, some models will display significantly faster on both Windows and Mac. We’ve also made several refinements to the Display Modes to make them even more eye-popping while you work…

Modeling is just one part of the design process; you also need to show how to build what is on the screen. We’ve improved many parts of the documentation workflow while also focusing on the more graphically-rich illustration tools like transparency and gradient hatches…

Gradient and Transparent Hatches

Create attractive 2D representations in a few steps.

Layout Management

Vertical panel makes it easier to manage models with many drawings.

Enhanced Text Fields

Text fields are text formulas that can dynamically update.


Grasshopper seems to be everywhere lately. As usual, we’re having a hard time keeping up (you might even see that familiar canvas in other applications). In Rhino 7, we’ve added some new components, but we’ve also made it easier to turn your programs into plugins…

Grasshopper Player
Turn your Grasshopper definitions into Rhino commands.

Clash Detection
Quickly find where your objects occupy the same space.

Grasshopper Component Placeholders
Placeholder component for missing plugins.

Development Platform

Rhino 7 brings major improvements to our free SDKs, with API refinements, better documentation, and some major new features that broaden and deepen the foundations of the geometry development platform…

Package Manager
Discover, install, and manage your resources.

rhino3dm Libraries
Read and write rhino 3dm files from nearly anywhere.

Access Rhino and Grasshopper within other Windows applications

Run Rhino and Grasshopper within Revit.

APIs for SubD, QuadRemesh, PBR Materials, and much more…

And More
