Blender or Rhino[ 3 vote(s) ]
1.Blender 1 / 33%
2.Rhino 2 / 67%

I know that Rhino is a professional grade software and that it has a very good tool set, but putting aside the cost of Rhino and looking at the two programs in their entirety (tool set, support, ease of use, community), which would you use for modelling in general? Maybe that's a loaded question, but it will help me decide.

I have no idea about Rhino (that is why i did not vote), but i am using blender for every model i made for 3d printing and never had any major problem. You can see in my shop what type of models i made if it will help you....


The only thing that limits us is our imagination.

Hey nimaanvar,

what's the reason you're limiting your choice to these two options? Like Keymaker said, it would help to know a bit more about your type of work.

Cheers,

Bart

My designs would be in the area of jewelry. Having done some research and tinkered a little in both Blender and Rhino, those are the two software that I have available to me. So that's why I've narrowed it down to these two.

Ah yes, you'll find many jewelry designers working with Rhino, often in combination with Grasshopper.

Just earlier this week, a Grashopper clone for Blender was released as well:

I believe Rhino may be easier to learn. Blender is of course free and growing fast. I'm a big Blender fan, so I won't give you my recommendation Wink

Cheers,

Bart
