Rhino users rejoice; the latest software version, Rhino 5, is compatable out-of-the-box with all current models of 3Dconnexion 3D mice.

From illustration and animation to engineering and product design, incorporating a 3D mouse in the design process helps Rhino users create a more natural connection to their 3D content.

Unleash the Power of Rhino

A 3D mouse provides Rhino 5 users an incomparable level of design interaction, making it a rewarding and time-saving tool. With the latest version of Rhino, users of 3Dconnexion 3D mice will see improvements in the following feature areas:

  • Intelligent 3D Navigation—Whether working with larger models or focusing on intricate details, the 3D mouse automatically follows a point of interest to continuously determine the optimal center of rotation. Alternatively, users can easily choose to rotate around a selected item.
  • Enhanced Camera Navigation—The 3Dconnexion controller cap allows users to manipulate models comfortably in any of three navigation modes: Camera, Target Camera or Helicopter.
  • Customizable ButtonsWith Rhino 5’s new 3D mouse button mapping editor, it’s quick and easy to assign commonly-used commands to the 3D mouse function keys, saving time, and reducing keyboard and standard mouse use.

“Rhino 5 includes a significantly improved 3Dconnexion 3D mouse integration making 3D navigation a much richer experience.” says Carlos Perez Alba, EMEA Sales & Marketing Manager at McNeel Europe. “Users who integrate Rhino 5 with a 3Dconnexion mouse can take advantage of the updated navigation features, allowing them to design, view and position their digital content faster than ever."
