What's new in Rhino 7?

Rhino 7 is the most significant upgrade in Rhino history. You can create organic shapes with new SubD tools. Run Rhino and Grasshopper as a Revit® add-on with Rhino.Inside.Revit. Use the robust QuadRemesh algorithm to create a beautiful quad mesh from NURBS geometry or meshes. With this version, McNeel has released completely new modeling workflows and refined many permanent functions.


For designers who need to quickly explore organic shapes, SubD is a new type of geometry that can be used to create editable, high-precision shapes. In contrast to other types of geometry, SubD combines free-form accuracy and still enables fast processing.

Rhino.Inside.Revit brings the power of Rhino and Grasshopper to the Autodesk Revit® environment.

Rhinoceros 7 in the Revit


Quickly create a quad mesh from existing surfaces, solid bodies, meshes or SubDs – ideal for rendering, animation, CFD, FEA and reverse engineering.



In Rhino 7 we improved the presentation tools and optimized the workflow with a major update of the Rhino render engine so that the same appearance as in your raytraced viewport can be reproduced without changes. We added support for PBR materials, a LayerBook command, and more.

PBR materials
Physically based rendering materials are beautiful and easy to use.

Denoisers produce high quality renderings in a fraction of the time

Emission materials
Create self-luminous objects that are common in consumer electronics.

Light waste
Specifies how the light intensity changes as light moves in the scene.

Present ideas quickly with LayerBook.

Color gradients and transparent hatching
Create attractive 2D representations in just a few steps.

Rhino refined

We fixed hundreds of bugs in Rhino 7, but we've also added workflow improvements such as: B. Named selections, mold making tools, a single line font for engraving, and improved interaction with third party file formats.

Named selection
Quickly save and restore previously selected objects

Mold making tools
For mold makers and tool designers, Rhino carries out the revision of the model test …

Single line fonts
Improve the speed and quality of CNC engraving.

Supported file formats
In Rhino 7, we've improved the fidelity of existing formats and support for SubD where possible.


We are constantly evolving the Rhino display pipeline to keep up with modern graphics hardware. In Rhino 7, some models display significantly faster on both Windows and Mac. We've also made some improvements to the display modes to make them even more noticeable as you work.

Modeling is only part of the design process. You also need to demonstrate how to create what appears on the screen. We've improved many parts of the documentation workflow while focusing on the graphically richer illustration tools like transparency and gradient hatches.

Color gradients and transparent hatching

Create attractive 2D representations in just a few steps.

Layout management

The vertical control panel makes it easy to manage models with many drawings.

Extended text fields

Text fields are text formulas that can be updated dynamically.


Locust seems to be everywhere lately. As usual, we find it hard to keep up (you may even see this familiar canvas in other apps). In Rhino 7 we added some new components, but we also made it easier to turn your programs into plugins …

Grasshopper player
Turn your Grasshopper definitions into Rhino commands.

Collision detection
Quickly find out where your objects are taking up the same space.

Placeholder for Grasshopper components
Placeholder component for missing plugins.

Development platform

Rhino 7 makes major improvements to our free SDKs, with API improvements, better documentation, and some important new features that expand and deepen the fundamentals of the geometry development platform.

Package manager
Discover, install and manage your resources.

rhino3dm libraries
Read and write Rhino 3dm files from almost anywhere.

Access Rhino and Grasshopper in other Windows applications

Run Rhino and Grasshopper in Revit.

APIs for SubD, QuadRemesh, PBR materials and much more …

And more
