Toolbars have been completely rewritten to provide these new features:
Macros enhancements include:
Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools.
Unlike RhinoScript, rhino.Python, or other programming languages, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows developers and designers to develop form generation algorithms without writing code.
Note: While RhinoScript is still widely used, supported, and is being in enhanced in Rhino 5, we are recommending that users and developers move to rhino.Python. See below.
rhino.Python is a powerful scripting language in Rhino 5 for 32‑ and 64‑bit Windows and Rhino for Mac. rhino.Python scripts will run on both platforms. rhino.Python is built for flexibility and clear syntax.
If you would like to give rhino.Python a try, explore some of the links on the rhino.Python site.
The RDK now includes a rich set of functionality for renderer developers.
The Zoo V5 is a complete rewrite of the Zoo with many new features:
The Rhino Installer Engine simplifies distribution, installation, and updating of Rhino 5 both 32‑ and 64‑bit plug-ins. The Rhino Installer Engine is compatible with the McNeel Update System - a system that keeps Rhino 5 and Rhino plug‑ins up to date.
The openNURBS developer toolkit now supports Rhino 5 (and earlier) native 3DM files. Other 2‑D and 3‑D CAD/CAM/CAE and graphic applications can read and write Rhino 3DM files directly. These development tools are free to all software developers.
Our regional office in Europe provides a translation and localization service for third-party developers and anyone else interested in translating their products to French, German, Italian, or Spanish. Details...
