Rhino 5 Overview

By December 10, 20127 Comments

You can download the demo of Rhino 5 at

As I mention in the video, this isn’t about the software. It is about making sure that we are all on the same page as we go through the lessons. You can take the techniques found on this site and apply them to most any other software.

I look forward to doing the new videos using version 5 as the environment.

Have a great week and don’t forget to leave a comment if you have any questions!

    This is a great video. Please share some more info.

    The gumball does allow exact changes in dimensions! If you click and drag it’s a ‘as you manipulate’ tool, but if you just click on the square on red/blue/green, it becomes an entry box for an exact dimension change; even negative numbers if you like.

  • Nick says:

    Besides your gumball error, (precision input by clicking instead of dragging on the arrows), you missed why you tap alt instead of holding alt for copying. If you look at the command line when dragging it tells you the, (important and useful), difference. Holding alt toggles whether the osnaps are used for positioning, tapping makes a copy. Tapping then holding does both.
    I like your videos and your approach but perhaps this one needs to be remade after a bit more research?

      Thanks for the input Nick! It wasn’t that I missed the purpose, I was just more criticizing the change. For me, the old way of activating O-Snaps was fluid enough. Old dogs…:)
      I’ll definitely be doing a deeper dive in later videos. Have a great day!
