–Open Rhinoceros3D (for non-rhino users download trial version) Other models and file formats modelled on other software packages can be imported to Rhino.
Compatible with surfaces and meshes, not compatible with polysurfaces.
Rhino works both with Nurbs and Polygons. Nurbs are mathematically defined curves with infinite resolution which makes its use for a smooth geometry, and is highly used in production of seamless continuous smooth pieces, i.e. in jewellery, car design fields. Polygons are subdivided or triangulated thus what seems to be a smooth surface on the screen can come out pretty triangulated once milled in a single model (wireframe view gives a better idea of how faceted geometry comes out despite looking smooth in the rendered view)
–Download a free copy of Grasshopper plug-in.
-Open 5xmonkey Rhino template file. Any 3dmodels to be imported into original 5xmonkey file.
-In the layer tab (below) you’ll see switched off layers- keep those off and don’t rename ( the BC head geometry appears when you connect the surface to grasshopper script)
-In Rhino command bar type in Grasshopper
-Grasshopper window appears, under file tab – open document – open 5xmonkey grasshopper file. All setup and ready to start working.
The rhino file contains modules and two presets.
