Rhinoceros 5

What is Rhinoceros 5?  (from Robert McNeel & Associates)

The Rhino 5 development process started more than five years ago with one overriding goal—to remove as many of your workflow bottlenecks as possible. That meant making Rhino faster and able to handle much larger models and project teams, in addition to making thousands of large and small improvements.

Overview

Rhinoceros 5 is a program developed by Robert McNeel & Associates. The most used version is 5.12.50810.13095, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software installer includes 77 files and is usually about 814.16 KB (833,696 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 40% of users of Rhinoceros 5 come from the United States, it is also popular in Italy and United Kingdom.
