Rhino3D is today the most popular and easy generic surface modeller available.
Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea - Rhino provides the tools to accurately model your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing. Rhino can create, edit, analyze, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids in Windows. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes.
Special features include:
Uninhibited free-form 3-D modelling tools like those found only in products costing 20 to 50 times more. Model any shape you can imagine.
Accuracy needed to design, prototype, engineer, analyse, and manufacture anything from an airplane to jewelry.
Compatibility with all your other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software.
Read and repair extremely challenging IGES files.
Accessible. So easy to learn and use that you can focus on design and visualization without being distracted by the software.
Fast, even on an ordinary laptop computer. No special hardware is needed.
Affordable. Ordinary hardware. Short learning. Priced like other Windows software. No maintenance fees.

Flamingo brings the features of AccuRender's raytrace and radiosity rendering technology to Rhino.
Rendering - Photometrically accurate images with reflections, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, color bleeding, shadows, depth of field, depth attenuation, ClearFinish™, and indirect lighting.
Animation - Viewpoint animation for walk-throughs and fly-bys, and sunlight animation for shadow studies.
Other features - Procedural clouds, fractal-generated 3-D plants, procedural 2-D and 3-D materials, progressive-refinement for quick preview, and extensive material, plant, and background libraries.
Hardware requirements - Flamingo run inside Rhino and has the same hardware requirements. Rhino with Flamingo runs on ordinary Windows desktop and laptop computers, with:
o Pentium, Celeron, or higher processor.
o Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP for Intel or AMD.*
o 40 MB disk space.
o 64 MB RAM. More is recommended.

*Rhino and Flamingo will NOT be ported to any other operating system.
