Rhino

Rhinoceros (typically abbreviated Rhino, or Rhino3D) is a commercial 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) application software. Rhinoceros geometry is based on the NURBS mathematical model, which focuses on producing mathematically precise representation of curves and freeform surfaces in computer graphics (as opposed to polygon mesh-based applications).

Rhinoceros is used in processes of computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), rapid prototyping, 3D printing and reverse engineering in industries including architecture, industrial design (e.g. automotive design, watercraft design), product design (e.g. jewelry design) as well as for multimedia and graphic design.

The Rhinoceros file format (.3DM) is useful for the exchange of NURBS geometry. The Rhino developers started the openNURBS Initiative to provide computer graphics software developers the tools to accurately transfer 3-D geometry between applications. An open-source toolkit, openNURBS includes the 3DM file format specification, documentation, C++ source code libraries and .NET 2.0 assemblies to read and write the file format, on supported platforms (Windows, Windows x64, Mac, and Linux).

OBJ

OBJ (or .OBJ) is a geometry definition file format first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package. The file has been adopted by many 3D graphics application vendors.

The OBJ file format is a simple data-format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices. Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human readable comment line.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to buy production license?

Navigate to our on-line shop there you can pay via plastic card or PayPal. The wire-transfer is also possible for orders over $500.

In what currency the prices listed?

All prices are listed in USD.

How CAD Exchanger is licensed?

For production usage you will need the license key. License key is tied to a certain machine via the host-id or MAC-address. You can easily get your host-id in the 'Information' panel in CAD Exchanger.

How do I activate the license?

The license key is delivered shortly upon payment. To activate the license navigate to 'Information' panel' > 'Activate License', click 'Activate' and choose the received license key in the file dialogue.

What happens if my computer breaks down?

Since CAD Exchanger is tied to the specific hardware if computer breaks down, the license won't be applicable anymore. For your convenience we are open to provide up to one additional license free of charge in case your current license won't be applicable any more.

Do I have to renew the subscription annually?

All production licenses are perpetual, which means that you do not have to keep the subscription active. Active subscription grants you the access to all releases and updates.
