Free real-time viewport raytracing in Rhino 5 with Neon




Neon 1.0 Service Release 1 is now available as a free download for all Rhino 5 users.  SR1 adds new features and fixes several bugs with the initial release of Rhino.  For more details, please visit:


Neon is a real-time, fully ray-traced viewport plug-in for Rhino 5.  Developed in collaboration with Caustic Professional, Neon adds a new working viewport mode called "Raytraced with Neon” - there's almost no other UI - it just works.

Neon helps a designer to quickly evaluate and establish the form, color, texture, lighting, and material requirements of a scene, very early on, without interruption.  Real time high dynamic range reflections, transparency, high quality sky-lighting, true procedural textures – all rendered in real time, right into the Rhino viewport, as you work.  And if you are using Brazil – many of those settings and materials will be rendered faithfully in real-time too!

Neon also supports the Caustic Series2 ray tracing accelerator boards (currently on promo – about 30% off) to deliver up to 4x the performance.

And best of all, Neon is free!

If you haven’t already done so, sign up to http://v5.rhino3d.com and join the Neon group, download Neon and start using it in Rhino 5 today!
