Bundling Rhino/Flamingo with CADopia Professional provides CADopia users a complete suite of solutions -- from drafting to advanced modeling, ready for manufacturing and engineering analysis. Architects can also use Rhino and Flamingo to create sophisticated presentation renderings.
About Rhino 4.0 For CADopia Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea—Rhino provides the tools to accurately model your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing.
Rhino can create, edit, analyze, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids in Windows. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds.
Rhino 4.0 Features • Uninhibited free-form 3-D modeling tools like those found only in products costing 20 to 50 times more. Model any shape you can imagine. • Accuracy needed to design, prototype, engineer, analyze, and manufacture anything from an airplane to jewelry. • Compatibility with all your other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software. • Read and repair extremely challenging IGES files. • Accessible. So easy to learn and use that you can focus on design and visualization without being distracted by the software. • Fast, even on an ordinary laptop computer. No special hardware is needed. • Affordable. Ordinary hardware. Short learning curve. Priced like other Windows software. No maintenance fees.
Flamingo brings the raytrace and radiosity rendering to Rhino. This plug-in includes:
Rendering Rendering Photometrically accurate images with reflections, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, color bleeding, shadows, depth of field, depth attenuation, ClearFinish™, and indirect lighting.
Animation Viewpoint animation for walk-throughs and fly-bys, and sunlight animation for shadow studies.
Flamingo Features Flamingo is easy to use, works seamlessly inside Rhino, and provides a host of features that speed and simplify image rendering. Uses both raytracing and radiosity to create sophisticated single-frame images and animations. Automatically calculates indirect light, hard and soft shadows, color bleeding, reflections, translucency, transparency, refraction, highlight, depth of field, and depth attenuation. Supports multiprocessors and background processing.
