I’d like to share my experience with MacBook journey, I have started my journey with MacBook Intel processor 8 GB memory, and it was perfect in that time but I have developed my skills which allow me to design more complex designs, MacBook Intel processor 8 GB wasn’t enough for me, so, I decide to move to a new MacBook which is M1 16 GB, from there I start facing an issues slowness, crashes and other things, as I was thought that the issue from the processor !! I never think that the issue was to compatibility, so, I decide again to purchase the latest and powerful model from MacBook which is M1 64 GB memory which cost me a lot, as I have same result !!! (lowness, crashes and other things) .
Just I wast my money without benefits, however, after a months , my brother ask me to purchase a windows device 64 GB memory and other things, and it was more cheeper than MACBOOK !!
Rhino is working perfectly in windows !! as I was wish .
from that experience I’ll say don’t purchase a Mac to use Rhino .
the question is “will we have a Rhino will be compatible with MAC OS ?!!”
I am also having issues with slowness in Rhino, especially when my models becomes too large. I thought it was my mac’s fault. Can a solution be found to make the mac version as good as the Windows version?
Thanks John. And thank you for all the hard work to make it possible to have such a great application like Rhino 3D. I especially love iRhino 3D to use it to show my clients the designs I make. I still prefer Apple above PC for many other reasons. I am confident that it will be going better with the speed in future!
I was on of the few people who started my journey on Rhino with macOS device. So I bought M1, some things are a bit slow but there are tricks to speed it. For my preview mode, I used modified arctic view that has lines enabled and flat shading. Somehow in that mode the speed is very good, and activity monitor revealed that Rhino was able to use 80% gpu…
I love my Mac, and I love my iRhino and I love the Mac Rhino software. I had a PC and I had Rhino on windows before. I am not tech savvy and had so many problems with my PC due to anti virus software and my computer dyslexia.
For the past 10 years now on Mac , have not had any issues.
