Bugs in Rhinoceros.


Rhinoceros is a commercial 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design application software developed by Robert McNeel & Associates. This CAD software with a multitude of complex 3d modelling tools allows the user to create unimaginable shapes and structures with great precision and detail.

Rhino is widely used these days and is quoted as the "looks tough but the most tender" software. The user interface and application may seem to be difficult in the beginning, but it has proved to produce extraordinary output. Rhino is high in demand and it is of great help for creating structures almost impossible.

Like any software, even Rhino is not fault-free.

In this blog we will be sharing the top reported and faced glitches and issues of Rhinoceros, the 3D software.

1. Blocks that contain texts go insane after scaling, the text height will appear random scale after leaving the block editor.

2. Opening a Rhino 5 drawing in Rhino 6 will make leader/dimension text alignments go random.

3. If a block contains a leader or dimension which will be mirrored, it will mirror the text. In rhino 5 texts/dimensions dit, not mirror.

4. If a vertical dimension is mirrored horizontally, the text alignment becomes mirrored, also as the displayed text.

5. The overall look of the wireframe mode is different from rhino 5, the lines are slightly thicker, it becomes difficult to distinguish multiple lines close to each other when not fully zoomed in.

6. There is a slight delay when selecting several curves.

7. Opening/saving a file takes longer versus Rhino 5. It looks like Rhino is somehow struggling.

8. The block manager works fine, but the import block commando does make a difference between capitals and lower case letters. the order of blocks is like ABCDEabcde

Even though these bugs exist, Rhino is in extensive use. Each new version trying to fix as many bugs as possible is the best part of launching each new version in intervals of time.
