Updated KeyShot 4 Plug-in for Rhino

With KeyShot 4, we have taken the plug-in for Rhino to the next level. When you download the plug-in for KeyShot 4, you can now link KeyShot and Rhino together. Now you can continue to work on your design, and update the model inside KeyShot with a simple button push. All your materials, animations, lighting, camera – simply everything – will be maintained. Do this today, tomorrow, or next week. All you need to do is open your model in Rhino, and the scene in KeyShot – and you are live linked!


  • Maintain color and texture assignments
  • Maintain layer structure
  • Hidden objects on layers stay hidden
  • KeyShot 4: Live linking – update model inside KeyShot
  • Export to bip without KeyShot installed
  • Rhinoceros 4 or 5
  • KeyShot 4 or 3
  • Windows 7,8 32/64-bit

I have tried this plugin with Keyshot 4 on Rhino 5 (64-bit). This is really slick. It works very well and the live update is really nice.

Keyshot 4 is a step improvement over 3 and a worthy upgrade.

How do you possibly export the Rhino Camera into Keyshot 4? I do not think it works.

Hi Kenneth,

I'm not sure if there is a preferred method for this. I'd suggest contacting the KeyShot support people to see if they have an known workflow.
