News about Rhino and all about training


Enscape is a real-time rendering plugin for Rhino that allows designers and clients to quickly visualize every element of a project, at any time. Previously only available on Windows, Enscape has just released a plugin version for macOS.

With real-time rendering capabilities, architects and designers can make on-the-fly adjustments, visualize different design iterations, and ensure that their creative vision is accurately portrayed and communicated to clients.

Enscape integrates directly into Rhino, meaning that you can design and visualize in real time within your modeling tool.


ShapeDiver recently released its "Client Application" and, with it, the ability to exchange data in real-time between ShapeDiver models (Grasshopper files running on the cloud) and local desktop software such as Rhino, Adobe Illustrator, and many more in the future. In this video, their Head of Product, Mathieu Huard, explains how this works.

 What is ShrinkWrap in Rhino 8?

Simply Rhino UK have created a Rhino 8 video looking at ShrinkWrap.

The new command can create a watertight mesh from surfaces, solids, meshes, SubDs, or any combination of these whether they are open or closed. If you have point cloud data ShrinkWrap can create meshes directly from that too.

What is ShrinkWrap ideal for?
ShrinkWrap is the tool you could reach for within Rhino 8 to create:
  • Meshes for 3D printing
  • A solid union mesh from multiple objects
  • A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments
  • Meshes without internal self-intersections
  • Offset meshes for shelling
  • Meshes from point clouds when reverse engineering
  • Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry
ShrinkWrap Video Tutorial
In the video, there is an overview of the basics of the command and then we are taken for a deeper look using specific examples from two real-life projects.
