Rhinoceros CAD Software for Architecture & Industrial Design
Rhino®, since its launch in 1998, has evolved as one of the standard architectural 3D modeling tools for architects and designers. As an open architecture, Rhino can also be used as a development platform – a C++ SDK. The inbuilt scripting capability (RhinoScript) enables programmers from all expertise levels to customize, automate and experiment with all its features.
Ranging from sketches, 3D modeling, drawing, and scanning data, Rhino offers accuracy in documenting and modeling the designs, making them ready for rendering, drafting, animation, manufacturing, and construction, translating complex NURBS curves and solids with limitless size. Supporting polygon meshes and point clouds, Rhino CAD can create any geometric or parametric designs. Files can be exported to laser cutters, 3D printers, milling machines. These features separate Rhino from all other 3D modeling tools.

How does Rhino CAD Software help in Architectural and Industrial Designs?
Here are some of the examples of architectural and industrial designs created with the help of Rhino CAD software:
01. Facade Panelization with Rhinoceros 3d Model
The Biosciences Partnership Building (BPB) is an example of façade panelization in using Rhino and other related software. The skin of the BPB building is a set of 24 copper panels. While creating the design of the building, the major challenge was the fabrication method and adapting it to a larger building with complex mass along with several folding conditions.
The complex geometry needs were developed in Rhino CAD software, and then Rhino geometry was translated into Revit which was the key behind the success. Rhino enabled the team to develop an accurate shell model, multiple iterations for rhino 3D printing, while Revit assisted in the floor and lab layouts.

The final script was created on the Rhinoceros 3D model, generating linework for each of the panels and center points and ordered points as well in a way with coding the panel types, that produced a flowing effect throughout the façade.
02. Shaping a Roof with Solar Analysis with Rhino 3d Drawing
The roof shape of the Cal Poly Pomona Administration Replacement Building looks random.

The sun movement plays a vital part in sculpting and surges the steel hat. The solar analysis was performed employing well-optimized daylight and the energy modeling plug-in in Rhino 3D known as DIVA. The morphology of the roof has the potential to reduce the intensity of using the energy by the building in the form of loads generated by the fans, and heating, lighting, and cooling through passive designs.

This analysis aimed to create a roof structure that provides shade in the summer, shields the winter, offers the natural light in the workspace while at the same time reducing a load of energy in the building. The geometry was created in Rhino, and DIVA analyzes the building geometry, separating graphic and numerical solar measurements. Before running the simulation, the expert needs to enter the geographic coordinates, sets the field of measurement and apply the attributes of the material to the Rhinoceros 3D model. The outcome was subjective, rational and deductive.
03. Dynamic and sculptural curves with Rhino CAD Software
The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum is an example of a complex architectural project designed in Rhino, showcasing the meticulous combination the apparent opposite concepts of sports and historical along with several clashes the first being the blend of classical with contemporary architecture.
The building wraps you around the building and takes you to certain areas in the Museum that you never imagined.

The exterior is completely different from the conventional designs with the bare minimum resemblances, like the height of two floors. Metal panels cover the whole structure.

The flow of the design, which was based on the NURBS curves, was accomplished with thousands of stone panels, covers up the complex design process. Software that played a pivotal role in the successful accomplishment of the building is Rhino CAD, Grasshopper, Catia, Maya, etc. The modeling was done in Rhino and Grasshopper was used to expound the shape of the metal brackets and support mechanism for the stones and their positions.

04. Conceptual Rhino CAD design
The four-storied Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok, covering an area of 216,000m2, is another iconic architectural presentation, with twenty-eight gates connecting to the Thailand main airport. It serves over 50 million passengers every year.

The conceptual studies were done in Rhino 5.0, culminating into a wireframe model elucidating the structural setting from the whole concourse making it a successful geometric outcome.

05. Increase energy efficiency through Rhino electricity monitoring solution
Steinbacher, the world leader in technologies related to energy-saving, is committed to maintaining active and passive energy proportionately. They selected Rhino electricity monitoring solutions to help them save energy easily and obtain the accurate measure of the active and reactive energy in their site spreading over 7000 m2.
