Rhino and Grasshopper are heavily used for freeform roofs, parametric facades, repetitive components, versatile building shapes or complex structures in architecture and engineering.
Design & Drafting
Rhinoceros in combination with Grasshopper is an ideal addition for all 2D and 3D applications in architecture and engineering in order to generate complex associated geometries such as NURBS surfaces, meshes and solid models.
Analysis & Simulations
Rhino and Grasshopper have a rich ecosystem of plug-ins for structural analysis, simulation, visualization and fabrication of your design.
BIM & Documentation
FlexibleBIM® (Building Information Modeling) features link geometry and object data. They support import and export from and to the IFC file format to exchange Rhino models with other AEC applications
Visualization & Animation
Many popular rendering and animation plug-ins work in Rhino. They help generating high-quality images of unparalleled realism and animating objects.
Fabrication & Construction
Rhino and Grasshopper can be tightly integrated in any step of the manufacturing process.
