Rendering with the V-Ray plugin makes it possible to create high quality realistic images with Rhino.
А Workstation license includes 1 Graphic User Interface (GUI) and 1 V-Ray Render Node.
The V-Ray plugin and/or extra Render Nodes are available as:
Native Rhino 6 offers a render engine which is attractive to discover first as the principles of visualizations are the same for any renderer: 3D model detail, lighting, materials. When you then find out that you like to work at creating visualizations and are confronted with the limitations of the “Rhino render”, it becomes time to go for a specific render plugin. Making attractive and (semi) realistic visualizations is mostly a matter of spending many hours in learning what light does with reflection, refraction, shadows etc. But also how to define materials well and how to set up proper lighting. In order to generate realistic images, you also have to model realistically. This means modeling many details, fillets etc.
Another aspect of rendering realistic visualizations is increased render time. Time to render depends on the complexity of the lighting and the size of the scene (amount of objects). But also depends on the desired resolution of the image. V-Ray offers three options to increase render speed:
