I have been using Rhino via Bootcamp for a couple of years and it runs fine. No real issues. I recently used a trial of the new Parallels and I thought it was going to work with Rhino 5 just fine but while dragging an object, it will suddenly jettison off to another part of the universe and leaving me to scramble finding the bloody drawing. I thought it was a mouse issue but Apple's mouse or a Logictech mouse both produced the same problem--otherwise it worked fine. Most of my work is top view drafting so I am not asking a lot of Rhino.
I know this may be not be resolveable, but I was curious if anyone knows of a fix. I like my mac and I like rhino--the Rhino for mac is not for prime time for sure--and it all works fine with bootcamp--just would like the convenience. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
that's what you get for not researching your product before you buy.
no purchases were made, it was a trial version of parallels and I had another mouse
so if you don't have a real answer to my question other than ridicule why do you bother to answer
I want to learn rhino and grasshopper. How is it, obviously architecture firms use it, but is it kind of like sketch up or auto cad is it wroth learning from a cad drafter's perspective?
Sorry to answer you question with another question.
MYDream - it's worth learning from and architect/designer/programmer perspective -it's not a drafting tool.
It can be a drafting tool. It is similar in many ways to Autocad and a very sophisticated Sketchup. It can do other things as well, but it is useful for drafting. I use that part of the its abilities all the time. It also has some great cross platform abilities--it can open and work with cad drawings and things can be saved for cad. Is it the program of choice for architectural firms?--I would guess that is still Autocad. I like it better than auto cad but perhaps that is just a personal preference. Perhaps others will have more insight.
I personally love Rhino for drafting. Not as powerful as Autocad, but still does the job really quickly.
Rhino sounds great, if it has drafting capabilities and i know you can use v-ray on it. Sounds like a great software to add to a professional's arsenal.
