Rhino 8

Rhino 8

Rhinoceros (Rhino) is a 3D modeling system that allows you to create 3D models of any complexity, while ensuring high accuracy of construction and providing ample opportunities for creating, editing and converting NURBS objects.
Rhino is the most versatile tool of all 3D modeling programs, a jack of all trades used in many industries.

Previous versions of Rhino can be downloaded from the links below:

Cloud license
The default recommended method is that the license is managed through your Rhino/Cloud Zoo account. It requires you to create an online account and allows you to log into Rhino 7 from any computer without having to enter a license key. It also allows you to use Rhino for Windows and Rhino for macOS on different computers (no two licenses required). The license key sent via email is entered into your Rhino account only once. It is not necessary to be constantly connected to the Internet – once a week is enough. You can also create groups of users who can use a specific group of commercial licenses. You can login or create a Rhino account using the following link: https://accounts.rhino3d.com

One computer (standalone)
The second licensing method is to install one Rhino license on just one workstation. On the first screen of the installer, click the gear and select “This PC.”

Local network
The third method is floating network license licensing. Then we will be able to access the license from different computers within the local network. One license can be used by one user at a time. Installation in floating license mode is possible using the free Zoo license manager for Windows. Installation and download information is available at: wiki.mcneel.com/zoo/home.
The licensing method you select during the first installation can be changed later.

What’s new in Rhino 8

Rhino 8 offers new modeling tools such as ShrinkWrap, a significant speed increase for Mac users, SubD Creases, an improved PushPull working method, improved drawing tools, a highly customizable user interface, an accelerated rendering engine , new data types in Grasshopper and much more. Here are a few key innovations.

ShrinkWrap: Get gold from the rubble

ShrinkWrap creates a sealed mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS, SubD and point cloud geometries: ideal for creating meshes for 3D printing.

Build for Mac

Rhino for Mac is faster than ever, runs the same on both Apple Silicon and Intel Macs, and uses Apple Metal technology for display. With this release, the user interface on Mac is closer than ever to its Windows counterpart.


Anti-aliasing in SubD creates a feature between a smooth and a sharp edge without adding complexity to the SubD control mesh, great for creating chamfer-like features.

Modeling simplified

Rhino 8 opens up new modeling workflows like PushPull and adds intuitive new features to Gumball, automatic control planes, and more.

Trimming and Splitting

Rhino 8 introduces several trimming and splitting enhancements to support a variety of drafting and fabrication workflows.


Rhino 8 has an updated Cycles render engine, improved UV processing, improved procedural textures, a new display mode, and much more.

Grasshopper: Rhino Data Types

Rhino data types allow you to create geometry with custom attributes, import additional file formats, manage blocks, use native materials in the graphics pipeline, create hatches and annotations, and many other advanced workflows.

Development Platform

Rhino 8 introduces a new code editor, support for CPython and .NET 7, significant improvements to our free SDKs, API refinements, and several major new features that broaden and deepen the foundations of the geometry development platform.

Other changes

The new version contains new linetypes, improved Boolean operations for meshes, improved surface editing tools, and much more.
Check out the “What’s New in Rhino 8” documentation for a complete list and new command options.
