RhinoDirect allows Rhinoceros users to modify 3D geometric shapes parametrically using geometric constraints and driving dimensions. Version 0.4 of RhinoDirect is available as a free* download at www.DrivingDimensions.com/labs.php.
The new version allows users to control spherical faces parametrically, and to visualize driving dimensions in the drawing area. The release also significantly improves the intelligence and reliability of the plug-in.
“Version 0.4 of RhinoDirect approaches a commercial solution for parametric modification of many typical mechanical parts,” said Dmitry Ushakov, Director of Product Management, LEDAS Ltd. “Over 1,500 Rhino users have already tried RhinoDirect, and we see the great demand for this technology in the Rhino community and beyond.”
RhinoDirect 0.4 is based on the latest version of LGS 3D constraint solver, which itself benefits from significant improvements to its reliability and performance.
RhinoDirect is an extension of LEDAS' RhinoAssembly plug-in, the ultimate tool for assembly design and kinematic simulation of mechanisms composed of rigid parts. Both RhinoDirect and RhinoAssembly belong to the LEDAS Driving Dimensions product line.
