Rhino is basically short for Rhinoceros 3D which is rich with features and is used on a commercial scale for 2D and 3D Modelling. The files created in it are saved in the file format called 3dm which is specific for this software only. The incompatibility of data formats limits the sharing and dissemination of Rhino designs. Therefore, designers need to find a tool that can quickly and conveniently display Rhino models online. Here Modelo comes.
Modelo is a website for publishing, sharing, and discovering Rhino models. It allows you to easily display 3D models on the web and view them on any browser, mobile, desktop, or tablet. You can upload an unlimited number of models from your software or your browser and embed them directly on Facebook, blogs, forums, or any other site.
Modelo has the following features that make it the best free online Rhino viewer
- Modelo is a 3D viewer with Zero Learning Cost
With Modelo, you will be able to freely Rotate, Pan, Zoom in, Zoom out, and Spin a 3D model. In case you want to view different projections of a model, you can do so using this freeware. Every Rhino user can drag and drop their 3D files into the browser. All the files are stored in their own designated folders, so there is no need to use another online cloud storage or file transfer service, like Dropbox or Wetransfer. Files that are hundreds of megabytes big can be dramatically compressed, so the download and rendering speeds get much faster. At the same time, Modelo separates the original model file from the visualization file, so there is no need to worry about your files getting stolen by sending them to visualize.
2. Faster Rendering and Better Quality
Modelo functions entirely within a standard internet browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox enabling users to upload their 3D data into a fast, intuitive viewer perfect for presenting to clients or sharing with colleagues for feedback. To achieve this, the expert graphics team of the company developed a custom compression and rendering engine to render models up to 45 times faster than the native design software they were created in. This speed allows architects to navigate through huge models fluidly while creating precise client presentations and discussing internal comments and markups in real-time.
3. Access your model on any device
Where you want to view your model is never a problem for Modelo, as no software are required to install: no compatible issues. With a one-click sharing function, you can get a unique web address of your design with one click, and have the link send easily to anyone you want to share. The link is fully functional on computers, tablets or mobile phones. With Modelo, we’ve added another dimension to the web browser where people can browse a Rhino model directly on a company’s website or a designer’s portfolio site.
4. Make your presentation alive
Designers can simply pre-save camera angles of their design, attach images and videos to each angle with Modelo. By just pressing the left-right arrow, it will navigate through the 3D space. Designers can also control what they want others to see and how they want them to see it. Also with these pre-saves, project members now can mark up on design updates anytime and turn them into a specific task for a designated person. Any comments about design or manufacturing can be made at the place where they are meant to be – in 3D.
