Rhino Open Projects is a collection of tools for Rhino 5 developed by the Laboratory of Design Tools and Methods in Industrial Engineering (Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, School of Engineering, University of Padova) for research projects such as biomedical (including dental), veterinary sciences, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, cultural heritage, the geometric products specification, the naval field, ophthalmic optics, and others.
The Rhino Open Projects tools are now available for academic and commercial purposes. Currently there are three plug-ins available:
- AdvMesh: allows mesh operations such as curvature analysis based on fitting methods, add noise to a mesh, fit a quadratic function on a set of points, simple mesh editing tools that allow to add and remove vertices and faces.
- AdvSurf: estimates the lines of curvature of a surface.
- LensDesign: developed for progressive addition lens design, analysis and data exchange for manufacturing process.
