I use Rhino as my primary sculpting platform. As it’s just me sculpting I use my Surface studio at home (big screen), and then i have a surface pro (laptop) i use when i am on the road. So typically The studio is always on the internet and the laptop is only on from time to time if the hotel i stay at has wifi. I am never using both computers at the same time unless i’m copying files or backing stuff up.
I brought my surface laptop with me on my last cruise, because i thought i could sculpt on the sea days - only to get stuck with a licence manager prompt saying there is no internet. I could not get around this. (it kept giving internet errors. It also mentions a key? As i was not aware this would be a problem and had no internet access I’m not sure if i had the key on hand if i could have entered it to get around the internet issue.
Thus i ended up sculpting on the far more reliable Rhino 5 which operates as normal. This workaround was OK as i was making new models at the time that i could later save in rhino 6, however i often work with custom clients at shows where i need to access my rhino 6 models to show the end customer. At the last show i went to show the client a model and could not load it because there was no internet in the vendor hall.
I guess I’m looking for tips … How can i assure that my Rhino 6 will work when I’m out of the office with my Laptop and there is no internet.
