Rhinoceros 3D for the Marine Industry


Rhino is a powerful 3d modeler for all phases of design and fabrication. Rhino uses accurate NURBS surfaces to help model any aspect of a vessel. Rhino’s flexibility lets you create your design in many different ways and does not lock you into one predefined approach so that it may be used for schematic design work to fabrication details.

Accurate Surface Design

Designed by Jonathan Quinn Barnett Ltd., Seattle. www.jqbltd.com

Rhino’s intuitive surface modeling tools let you model the most complex surfaces accurately. Rhino’s unique ability to join surfaces into solids is key to surface modeling flexibility with solid model accuracy.

  • Model using accurate NURBS geometry.
  • Visualize changes realtime.
  • Rhino includes tools to analyze fairness and curvature.
  • Fully sets of training material, videos and support available.
