Rhino 5 public beta - new build

Rhino 5 is now very stable and ready to put into production. 

Timid owners of Rhino 4.0 are now invited to download and use the Rhino 5 beta. We still have a few tune-ups and minor bugs to fix. Plus, the documentation, translations, and marketing materials need to be finished.

Meanwhile, don't wait to try Rhino 5.

New Rhino 5 public beta builds are available almost every week. Rhino 5 automatically downloads and notifies you of updates when they are ready.

64-bit Windows Supported:
The 64-bit version of Rhino 5 allows you to open and edit models that are much larger than you could in Rhino 4.0. The 32- and 64-bit versions of Rhino 5 can be installed and run on the same computer at the same time.

Backward Compatible:
Rhino 4.0 Plug-ins will load and run in the 32-bit version of Rhino 5. Plug-ins will need to be recompiled for the 64-bit version of Rhino by the plug-in developers. Until they're ready, you may need to run the 32- and 64-bit versions of Rhino 5 side by side.

Rhino 4.0 and 5 can be run on the same computer without a problem. Also, you can SaveAs 4.0 files from Rhino 5.

System Requirements:
  • Windows XP (32-bit), Windows Vista (32- or 64-bit) or, Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit)
  • Rhino 4.0
  • 500MB of disk space
  • 2GB RAM (4-16GB recommended for 64-bit systems and very large models)
