Here are a few unsolicited user comments about Rhino.
"For a VW engine visualization we fortunately used Rhino
to convert 800 IGES parts into perfectly optimized high-quality
models for SOFTIMAGE. No other converter software was able to
do that with the same speed, control and precision. No idea
what we had done without Rhino to fullfill the quality proof
of the VW engenieers."

"As an aircraft designer, I find that RHINO offers ease,
versatility and speed to generate complex surfaces with precision
accuracy needed for aerodynamic considerations. An excellent
product, steadily improving, with matched support system. I
have been using it since it came into the market without any
reason to find a substitute, if there is any."
Dr. A. K. Kundu, Belfast, UK
"I have been a boatbuilder, loftsman, ship builder, ship
designer and Cad Engineering manager for 34 years. I have yet
to find a shipyard/boatyard detail design task that I could
not accomplish simply and effectively with Rhino. Simply put,
it is an incredible tool. Keep up the good work."
James McConnell, Manager, Engineering and Planning
"With Rhino, things fit! We use Rhino because we produce
higher quality more accurate vessels with less construction
"Integrating 3-D design throughout the project, from the
initial proposal to the final details, benefits the entire project
"With Rhino our design studio has been able to realize yacht
design compositions that are very complex and solve many of
the detailed surface intersections before they become an issue
on the shop floor."
JQB International Yacht Design
"Rhino's combination of reliability, its ability to handle
complex organic shapes and its flawless translation to and from
the other software tools I and my clients use, are completely
unique in the marine software market."

"It is absolutely the easiest-to-use 3-D modeling program
I have found."
"I have learned 90% of what I know about modeling with Rhino
and have decided after years of doubt that I am going to do
animation for a living. Yours is the best 3-D modeling program
I have ever used and as a development team you have also been
the model of your craft. I will continue to support the use
of Rhino and have already taught my first batch of people the
basics in 3-D modeling using Rhino."
"Rhino is extremely versatile and easy to use. The features
are incredible. One of the things I really like is being able
to produce 3-D rendered animations. You have an excellent product;
keep up the good work."
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada
"I have put in about 100 hours on Rhino versions, mainly
designing skates and skate equipment. I think you're 'on a winner.'
That's Australian for having your money on the right horse.
Keep up the great work."

"What struck me at first with Rhino was that, once I got
through the first chapters in your excellent tutorial, most
of the work flow more or less became native to me. I learned
about 65% of the tools after a few hours every evening for a
week, and quickly started to model my own objects. Now modeling
is a dream with NURBS and not a pain as it used to be."
The Alien Workshop
"Rhino is very intuitive. Even someone with no 3-D experience
can get results in a matter of an hour. Most programs take longer
than that to figure out the commands."
Highland Park, New Jersey
"I recently downloaded your Rhino because I was looking for
a 3-D rendering package as an aid to teach my son (age 7) to
better visualize objects in 3-dimensional space. He absolutely
went nuts over it. He was able to navigate through your user
interface really easily without any help. The day after I downloaded
it for him, he was showing me how to do things!"
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
"As a mechanical designer, I am very impressed with Rhino.
The surface and Boolean commands work quickly and correctly
even on a 75 MHz Pentium with 16 MB RAM, and the user interfaces
are excellent. I was able to do the headphone tutorial in about
20 minutes with no previous NURBS experience. I look forward
to using Rhino for a long time."
Jacob B. Spiegel
"I am a plastic mold designer and do a lot of NC programming.
I was working with imported wire frames from our Unigraphics
solid modeling software which is splines and NURB curves. I
was having a hard time creating the correct surfaces. Then I
installed Rhino and within one hour I had created all 71 surfaces
needed for the Mastercam file, exported back to Mastercam and
in another 20 minutes the cut paths were complete. Whoever wrote
this package has done a fantastic job."
Ken Kell, Sr. Mold Designer

"Rhino support is 10 times better than anything else I have
seen. I am truly impressed by the entire group."
University of Alabama
"I have used many surface and solid modelers and yours is
definitely the most accessible and has the right level of commands
that allow you to create the surfaces that you want. Not only
that but it returns useful information about surfaces, and gives
you the ability to edit surfaces at a low level. Superb."
Horsham, West Sussex, England
"I used Rhino for some serious work -- 3 decimal places of
accuracy on a model from my own measurements -- and I'm very
impressed. I expected to spend a long time looking for the commands
I would need and I was wrong. Any functions I needed I could
figure out with minimal references to the Help menu. Excellent!"
Lake St. Louis, Missouri
"After a few years of mostly drafting and a little modeling
in AutoCAD, Rhino is quite refreshing. The interface is a great
combination of features I'm already familiar with in AutoCAD

"I just wanted to compliment you on your responsiveness.
The Rhino team is a shining example of developers who listen
and respond. Asking for a feature and having it implemented
within weeks for everyone to try it out is something that all
other software companies should pause and think about. Congratulations!"
"Every day I learn some new feature about Rhino. It keeps
reinforcing how brilliant your team is. Wow!"

"I just finished my first two Rhino tutorials and I'm just
overwhelmed by the quality and features of the program. I used
to work on Alias Power Animator before I switched jobs and Rhino
comes very close in the modeling department. It's a perfect
companion to 3dsMax2."
"I'm working with another Industrial Design student and 18
Aerospace Engineering students to design a plane for our fourth
year major project. At our second meeting I showed them some
general concepts in Rhino (things like the number of engines
and where the wings go) and they were quite impressed. Rhino's
power and ease of use are sure helping us quickly stake out
territory and earn the respect of the Engineers -- so that we
wind up doing more than the paint scheme!"
