existing 3-D data is often one of the first
steps in a design project. Rhino has always
directly supported both 3-D digitizing hardware
and 3-D scanned point cloud data. Rhino 5 has enhanced support for:
- Large point clouds. 3-D
scanners have become faster and cheaper,
making huge scan files more common.
support and enhanced support for
graphic co-processors has made it possible to work with
large point clouds.
captures 3-D terrain data for agriculture,
archaeology, conservation, geology,
land use planning, surveying, transportation,
plus wind farm, solar farm, and cell
tower deployment optimization. Rhino 5 added robust
support for plug-ins, such as
RhinoTerrain, that provide specialty
tools for these new Rhino users.
