rhino workstations

When a complex project requires high-performance tools to create, render, and analyze, many architecture, engineering, and construction professionals turn to Rhino. A CAD application AEC users can customize to their specific needs, Rhino models everything from curves to freeform surfaces. As such, the software also needs an equally powerful Rhino workstation to deliver peak productivity.

Developed and released by Robert McNeel & Associates, Rhinoceros 3D is a computer-aided design platform used to model, render, analyze, animate, and document various surfaces, curves, point clouds, and solids. This notable application is popular with AEC professionals for a number of reasons. One distinct feature of Rhino is its non-uniform rational basis splines (NURBS) geometry, a system for translating mathematically precise shapes and objects into 3D models. NURBS can accurately represent anything from a 2D curve to complex designs like car bodies. Another appealing feature is that, as an open-source platform, you can customize interfaces, commands, and menus. With a range of available plug-ins that either add to or expand on Rhino capabilities you can further personalize the application for their specific field.

3D Modeling

Rhino offers AEC professionals a highly capable tool for modeling all sorts of objects, shapes, and geometric designs. With precise mathematics informing how curves, meshes, and points are produced, Rhino provides a fast and highly detailed way to create realistic and richly defined models. You can engineer, prototype, and analyze any model from aircraft and automobiles, to structures and industrial facilities. Because modeling is its primary function, Rhino is a frequency-bound application, a key factor to consider when determining your Rhino 3D hardware requirements.

Rhino performance isn't affected by the number of CPU cores in your workstation, but rather the frequency of the few cores from which the software draws power. In order to accelerate your specific creative workflow, BOXX Rhino recommended hardware includes the APEXX S3 professionally overclocked to 5.3 GHz.

When it’s time to present models, AEC professionals need a way to render their designs and with Rhino, you’ll have a number of options. For instance, take advantage of any one of the available rendering plug-ins, export files to a rendering application, or use Rhino Render within the software. Whatever route you choose, be sure that your Rhino recommended hardware is configured to handle both primary modeling functions, as well as rendering workflows.

On the Go

As an AEC professional, you’re no stranger to having to work on-the-go, but no matter if you're in transit or remote, you need a capable mobile workstation to support Rhino creative workflows. Finding a computer to emulate desktop Rhino performance isn't easy, but it's not impossible. BOXX mobile laptops provide users the same type of performance they'd expect from a desktop workstation. GoBOXX MXL features an Intel® Core® i7 desktop processor, while the GoBOXX SLM has eight cores and NVIDIA RTX graphics.
