I looked at Rhino Compute a while back and was able to get an auth token to try it out against compute.rhino3d.com. I can’t seem to find the link to get an auth token anymore. Has the McNeel Rhino Compute server been discontinued? Going forward will there be a McNeel Rhino Compute server available for production use or is it expected that you host Rhino Compute yourself only?
Rhino Compute is a product that is meant to be used on your own host. As we developed it became clear that a central Compute server was not going to serve anyone well.
It is part of an overall Web Framework set of projects:
You can still use our public server to test things out. The Auth Token can be retrieved from https://www.rhino3d.com/compute/login.
As Scott mentions, for anything you are developing, you should host your own instance of Rhino.Compute.
No. Not unless you are developing a major web application. It is not for end-users. Only advanced developers.
No. It is only a testing and demo server. We don’t keep it running all the time.
If you are developing a web based application, you’ll likely want to host it on AWS, MS, or Google… or build your own server farm.
