Rhino - nurbs modeler - for OSX

Post by macitect » Sat Aug 04, 2007 10:38 pm

I would imagine that most of us predominantly use SketchUp for 3D. If however you are looking for something with which you can do more organic forms then you might want to check out Rhino.

I haven't yet used it, but I have heard great things about it and seen some really impressive models. It is a NURBS modeler, which I think is far more conducive to architectural modeling than polygonal. I just saw on the MaxwellRender forums that Rhino is coming out on OSX.
