Rhino3DPRINT is a fully integrated, separately licensed, plug-in that runs inside the Rhinoceros 5.0 NURBS modeler. It offers efficient, easy and automatic tools for the preparation of 3D data, such as point clouds and meshes, that otherwise cannot be 3D printed. The seamless combination of Rhino’s powerful modeling and extensive file import functionality with Rhino3DPRINT’s data preparation tools enables the user to 3D print models from almost any input source and any major 3D format.

Rhino3DPRINT is only available on Rhino for Windows. It will not run on the Mac version of Rhino
