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.
cadwork is a CAD software, developed by the CSEM. It allows users to draw, to design, or to manufacture. Originally, cadwork was created for the watch industry, but now it is mostly used by the architecture, engineering and construction market, that is civil engineering, carpentry, topographic, road building, architecture, armed concrete, glue laminated timber, stairs.
cadwork offers special modules to provide solutions for different tasks. The modules are fully-fledged components, related to each area of activity and they can be arranged to represent an entity. Thus, they can be exchanged against other modules, or complete an already existing CAD / CAM solution. The existing modules are the following: 2D-Layouts and details, 3D-Modeling, cadwork Viewer, 3D-Cabinet, Roof, Element, List, Piece by piece shop drawing, CNC machines, Staircases, Variant-parametric, Glulam.
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
