V7 wish list

do you mean this?

Vincent1, we do actually do this when it is required. We have had issues with printing that way. For some reason the outline of hatch would always print in the PDF’s, but printing directly from rhino was fine but we have to make pdfs for clients. The “wish list” intent was to make that process easier and less steps to make a simple circular viewport.

auto cplane is already in 6- use the command 1view.
shift+control to lock to an ortho view, shift+control to unlock back to rotating view.


i have some personal wish items for V7 but currently I just need V6 to work properly.

The Wish List for V7 though is as follows;

  1. Display Modes per Layer for Paper Space.

  2. Better cross sectioning tools with clipping planes

    • Offset cross sections

    • Cross Sectioning Hatches

    • Omit objects from cross section

  3. Change wire cut for multiple curves used as cutting tool

what is not working for you in v6?

We have had a bunch of graphical issues with viewports hiding geometry, drafting issues with leaders and text, layout copy issues loosing all of the title block and not copying, dimensions not associating with model space correctly and changing their “style” randomly, box edit issues, wire cutting issues, Make 2D issues with not joining curves, PDF’s issues not showing geometry, Rhino re-setting its options and no longer having certain display modes and plugins available, model and layout units re-setting from inches to mm randomly. If I consulted with my coworkers I could add more.

we’d love to get to the bottom of all these issues- If you could write them up and send them to tech@mcneel.com with any info or files we can use to reproduce, we’d be happy to help try and work through all of this.

also if you can run the systeminfo command on the offending machine/machines it’ll help us see if there are any hardware issues.

Morning Kyle,

When I find time I will collect together the issues being raised by my fellow coworkers and put them together. Right now we are crawling along and dealing with the issues as they come just to keep moving with design and drafting. I had already posted my system info prior and performed some driver updates as a result but it didn’t change anything and other workers in the department have different machines so getting their system info is a chore to say the least.

Ultimately, we use Rhino and the problems that arise are annoying, and make life a little difficult, but day to day we make it work. I can not share files due to the nature of the work we do, sorry.

Thanks for the help though. Looking forward to Rhino V7. As I stated, we are a busy company and would love to see somethings added in the future which would be a benefit to engineering.

We’re in the same boat.

What type of issues are you working with?

and bunch of other issues with Python and RhinoScript methods.

Windows and macOS serial number (licence key) compatibility …

Already the case with V6.

Oh, I didn’t know it.

It didn’t work when I tried to install macOS WIP using my rhino 6 license for win last week. So, I’ve installed bootcamp instead.

Any chance to get some instruction for macOS installation?

A V6 license key is not valid for getting a V6 for Mac WIP license key - only a V5 for Mac license key. The V6 key will be valid however for the final V6 for Mac version.

Thank you for providing some information. I will try the V5 then.
One question though, Is mac and win versions have huge difference in terms of functions?

For the basics no. Just mainly the interface is quite different.

Ok, I will use rhino for mac then.

Thank you for your much needed information.
