Learn how to convert glTF to Rhino3D with CAD Exchanger
glTF (derivative short form of GL Transmission Format) is a file format and extension for 3D scenes and models using the JSON standard. It is an API-neutral runtime asset delivery format developed by the Khronos Group 3D Formats Working Group. It was initially intended to be an efficient, interoperable format with minimum file size and runtime processing by apps.
Being called ‘JPEG of 3D’, GLTF is indeed a star of 3D model formats. Standard for many 3D applications and game engines, it is especially prominent as a common publishing format for 3D content tools and as the format of choice for web apps.
Rhinoceros (typically abbreviated Rhino, or Rhino3D) is a commercial 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) application software developed by Robert McNeel & Associates. It is used in industries including architecture, industrial and product design, in multimedia and graphic design and runs on Microsoft Windows and OS X. Rhino uses Grasshopper, a visual scripting language add-on, developed by Robert McNeel & Associates.
Rhino is based on the NURBS mathematical model, so it focuses on producing precise representations of curves and freedom surfaces. It allows users to create, edit, analyse, and visualize NURBS curves, surfaces, solid bodies, point clouds and polymeshes.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
