Many of you have asked and now the wait is over! RhinoCAM 2018 now supports Rhino 6 for Windows! You can download and evaluate RhinoCAM 2018 here. Rhino 6 is one of the most anticipated and long-awaited version upgrades to the popular Rhinoceros CAD and Design Modeling platform to date. Rhino 6 includes many new features and thousands of usability enhancements. Grasshopper is now a part of Rhino! You will find many enhancements in the areas of Presentation, Display, Documentation, Licensing & Administration, Make2D, Refinements, Development Platform and Serengeti.

RhinoCAM 2018, with its impressive array of new features and enhancements, now fully supports Rhino 6. By far the most exciting new RhinoCAM 2018 enhancement is Automatic Feature Machining (AFM) that allows you to completely automate your machining tasks. AFM unlocks the feature-rich information hidden within 3D solid models and allows you to apply the CAM knowledge rules that are unique to your machining processes.
