Report Problems

We would love to fix every problem that you find, but to do that we need to be able to repeat the problem here.

Here are a few guidelines on how to report a problem so that it will be easier for us to find and fix the problem.


Currently we have not worked out pricing, licensing, or the cross platform licensing details, but in any case, we will make it as painless as possible for everyone.

Meanwhile, you are welcome to use Rhino for Mac free of charge while it is in development. That includes commercial uses.

The work in progress versions will expire within a few months after the first released verson starts shipping.
