How many Rhino users?

Hi !
I just started using Rhino and exploring this community and I was wondering how many users does Rhino had.
Does anyone now ? :slight_smile:
Thanks a lot !

I don’t know what the current estimate is.
Maybe @bobmcneel will have an idea.

We don’t have a good way to track users, but we do have more than a million people that subscribe to the Rhino newsletter. My guess is that most would have used Rhino. Of course, most have not purchased a license.

Hi, thanks a lot Bob for your answer ! Do you think that illegal Rhino downloads represent more users than legal download ? is there any solution to avoid illegal download ?

I have no idea…

Sure. Stop shipping software and make a Rhino a SaaS product like Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk are doing.

I had to look that up, for the lazy:
