Rhino for Mac

Rhino for Mac Home Rhino 5 for Mac is almost here!

Release Candidate 1 (RC1) is a full commercial product that runs with 90-day evaluation, commercial, and educational (but not WIP) license keys. When you download RC1, you will start your 90-day evaluation period.

We will ship RC1 as Rhino 5 for Mac unless you tell us about a significant problem.

What will happen:

  1. Your Rhino for Mac WIP will stop working on June 3, 2015.
  2. Before June 3rd, visit to download RC1.
  3. We will send you an email with your Rhino for Mac 90-day evaluation license key and a download link.
  4. In the next few weeks, we will announce Rhino for Mac, including special introductory pricing and where to buy.


Some WIP features have been removed from Rhino for Mac.

Rhino for Mac is NOT the same as Rhino for Windows. Please let us know if you see a problem that should be fixed before we release.
