openNURBS Initiative

The openNURBS Initiative provides CAD, CAM, CAE, and computer graphics software developers the tools to accurately transfer 3-D geometry between applications.

The tools provided by openNURBS include:

  • C++ source code libraries to read and write the 3DM file format. The current Microsoft, Apple and Gnu compilers for Windows, Windows x64, Mac, and Linux are supported..
  • .NET source code to read and write the 3DM file format.
  • Quality assurance and revision control.
  • Technical support.

Unlike other open development initiatives, alliances, or consortia:

  • Commercial use is encouraged.
  • The tools, support, and membership are free.
  • There are no restrictions. Neither copyright nor copyleft restrictions apply.
  • No contribution of effort or technology is required from the members, although it is encouraged.

Note: openNURBS is an open source toolkit for only reading and writing 3DM files. Our full-featured development platform is provided in the Rhino SDKs.

Audience

The openNURBS SDKs are intended for use by skilled C++ or .NET programmers.
