Rhino 4.0 SR6 Released

Rhino 4.0 Service Release 6 is now available for download. Owners of Rhino 4.0 are encouraged to download and install SR6 today.

SR6 contains dozens of stability and crash fixes, as well as enhancements to many commands, including:

  • Block: A warning about blocks with no geometry as been added.
  • Open: A confirmation message now appears on the command line.
  • Save:STL - Interface change: The options and prompts for a scripted export of file formats that use the STL mesh setting have been changed to more closely resemble the settings of the Mesh command.
  • Starting Rhino on Vista Improved: previous releases of Rhino 4.0 sometimes would only start when run as Administrator. SR6 should start without administrator permissions.
  • BlockManager: Hidden blocks (with * prefix in the name) did not display correctly. This is fixed.
  • CopyViewportToDetail faieds after the first time the command is run. This is fixed.
  • Dim: The hyphen between feet and inches sometimes did not display. This is fixed.
  • DocumentProperties, Render: The Lock viewport aspect ration was incorrectly not maintained after closing the dialog box. This is fixed.
  • ExtrudeSrfTapered: Failure bug fixed.
  • Insert: A problem with creating layers after the insertion was canceled has been fixed.
  • Installer: A file required for ZPR export was not being installed. This is fixed.
  • Linetypes: The Document Properties Linetype scale incorrectly allowed 0 as a value. This disabled linetypes. This is fixed.
  • Loft command crash fixed.
  • Loft: Several bugs that caused an incorrect surface have been fixed.
  • MacroEditor: A problem with focus to the command line has been fixed.
  • Open:DWG/DXF: A problem opening DXF files has been fixed.
  • Open:DWG: Splines did not read properly. This is fixed.
  • Open:OBJ: Files imported from topmod3D had some gaps. This is fixed.
  • Open:OBJ: OBJ data was not read correctly by Service Release 5b. This is fixed.
  • Open:SKP: An import error has been fixed.
  • Options, Appearance: The Full path in titlebar option did not work properly. This is fixed.
  • Options, Appearance, Advanced Settings: The Export button was incorrectly available even when no scheme is selected for export. This is fixed.
  • PointDeviation: The Apply button did not work correctly. This is fixed.
  • RhinoScript: The RhinoScript page of Options incorrectly allowed the same script file to be added more than once to the list of files to load at startup.
  • Save:3DS: A problem with importing and exporting has been fixed.
  • Save:DWG/DXF: Support for exporting ACIS solids has been added. Create or edit a named export scheme, and change the export option for Rhino surfaces to AutoCAD Solids.
  • Scale1D did not properly update CurvatureAnalysis colors. This is fixed.
  • Toolbar: Graphic images were garbled when toolbar was imported. This is fixed.
  • TriangulateNonPlanarQuads: A problem with the selection calculation has been fixed.
