3d PDF plugin for Rhino from Simlab

A picture tells a thousand words – a 3D model even more!

Wouldn't it be great to be able to rotate this image and fly through the yacht?
See for yourself after downloading the 3d-PDF of this design to your computer and opening it with Adobe Reader for example.

Mind you that a 3d-PDF doesn't work in a web browser. It only works after downloading and opening the 3d-PDF in Adobe Reader for example.

The Simlab 3d PDF plugin for Rhino is a perfect plugin to send a 3d model of your design to your customer.  The advantage is that you don't give your 3d model away and it is easy to use.

At RhinoCentre we tested this plugin and created a nice workflow that takes advantage of the features of the 3d-PDF.

Contact RhinoCentre for training if you like to learn our workflow.

Test the plugin for free at Simlab or buy directly for $99.

MARIN integrates Rhino in their process for hull and propeller modeling.

This page comes from the Marin Report Newsletter of Jan. 2013.

The Dutch Maritime Research Institute (MARIN) is currently developing several plugins for Rhino for internal use. These plugins will be used for modeling ship hulls, propellers, appendages etc. These models are input for CNC milling and advanced CFD analysis.
One of these plugins will replace their current inhouse software 'GMS' for modeling ship hulls,  which has been in development for over 20 years.
RhinoCentre is happy to support Marin in this sensitive process as accurate 3d models are the starting point for any analysis at Marin. By offering software, training and consultancy RhinoCentre has hands on experience in the high tech demands of Marin. 

Offering knowledge to MARIN is something we are proud at!
