Plug Ins

Geometry Gym Geometry Gym provides OpenBIM software tools and support for Architects, Engineers, and others in the Built Environment. Primarily these tools target project data exchange. Powerful parametric and generative modelling of projects is enabled by utilizing plug-ins for Grasshopper3d and Rhino3d. Generative BIM data exchange is provided using a combination of OpenBIM formats (primarily IFC) and direct API interaction to popular software including Revit, Archicad, Digital Project and Tekla. Structural Analysis models can be exchanged with many popular analysis software. Lynx4D Lynx4D™ is a plug-in for the 3d modeling tool Rhinoceros® which can help you in the early stages of design. The plugin has a set of solar tools for studying shadow patterns that includes solar diagrams for any area of the world and other features which will come soon. Please, give it a opportunity and tell us where we can improve it. Plant Editor The AccuRender Plant editor is a stand alone application that allows for the creation of fractal based plant models for Rhino. Orca3D Orca3D is a marine design plug-in used in the design of monohulls and multihulls of all sizes and shapes, including large commercial and naval ships, fast ferries, sailing and motor yachts, rowing shells, recreational powerboats, dinghies, and more. It has tools for hull design and fairing, intact hydrostatics and stability, speed/power prediction, and weight & cost tracking. The Orca3D Marine CFD module adds a Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) CFD code, with an easy-to-use interface that makes it practical to use without the need to be a CFD specialist. PolyFrame PolyFrame is a geometry-based, structural form finding plugin for Rhinoceros 3d based on the principle of the equilibrium of polyhedral frames known as 3D graphic statics. Evolute This is the support forum for EvoluteTools (Lite, PRO and D.LOFT), a versatile paneling, geometry optimization and processing toolkit for freeform surfaces.Monitored by Evolute GmbH ( - Clayoo Iris Iris is a Work In Progress file export plugin for Rhino 5 for Windows, Rhino 5 for macOS, and Rhino WIP (Windows and macOS) which generates a JSON document that can be parsed and viewed through WebGL in a modern web browser. Lands Lands Design is a landscaping plug-in to design gardens and green spaces that Rhino 5 (32 and 64 bit). Lands is ideal for landscape architects, urban planners, town council technicians, constructors, designers and draftsmen, environment departments, nurserymen, gardeners, etc. XirusCAD This is the support forum for Xirus, a brand-new geometric modeling kernel which provides ‘augmented CAD’: a powerful modeling technology that combines the best of the worlds of NURBS, subdivision, and polygon meshes and adds augmented access to the 3D digital object. Xirus provides decoupled control of tangents, curvature, mixed- and higher order derivatives and enables direct smoothness control in 3D modeling. The WIP will be released on 20. November. Have a look at the tutorial videos at PanelingTools PanelingTools supports creating paneling solutions from concept to fabrication… It is a McNeel plug-in that is closely integrated with Rhino and Grasshopper, and is widely used by architectural and other designers. XNurbs Kiwi Kiwi!3D is a plug-in for Rhino and Grasshopper. Kiwi!3D enables the integration of Isogeometric Analysis (IGA) into the CAD environment and thus creates a smooth and mutual exchange of design and analysis data – one project, one workflow, better results in less time. VisualARQ This is the support forum for VisualARQ, a BIM software for 3d architectural modeling in Rhino.
