Creating high resolution pictures from 3D models

First, I’m new to Rhino/the CAD world and I would like to apologize if this is a trivial question.
I have created some nice models in Rhino and I would like to obtain some high resolution pictures of the models.

I know that I can export curves as a PDF, but in my case I would like to create high resolution pictures of the surfaces.
Is there a (free) solution to my problem?


Several options here, I guess.

If you are happy with the way things look in your (modified) display mode, you can get a bigger resolution screen shot by using the -ViewCaptureToFile (note the dash in front of the command which allows you to set the scale) to save the image to disk.

Else you could use the built-in RhinoRender plugin.

Printing to an image file also works (it’s pretty much the same thing as viewcapturetofile). You can set the image size in the print dialog
