Updates from V-Ray 6 for Rhino are available, please contact us for pricing


V-Ray 6 for Rhino is a highly accurate renderer, enabling designers to predict and present their designs with the highest level of realism and reduce the need of physical prototypes. V-Ray greatly increases Rhino's ability to handle large scenes and can be used directly within Grasshopper.

Manage complex scenes easily with V-Ray

V-Ray 6 for Rhino is much more than a do-it-all renderer that creates gorgeous images of your designs. It's also a full suite of tools to help you accomplish more in Rhino than ever before. V-Ray 6 makes it easier to manage everything in your scene — even the crazy complex ones.

Smart, fast, rendering with the industry standard renderer

V-Ray 6 is smart, too, it learns from your scene to make lighting faster and it can set your camera exposure and white balance automatically.

With the new Light Gen tool in V-Ray 6 for Rhino, lighting your Rhino scene is automatic. In minutes, Light Gen calculates multiple lighting options and shows them as thumbnails. Simply choose the look you want and render.

Work within Grasshopper with V-Ray

V-Ray 6 for Rhino extends the functionality seen in the previous V-Ray Next for Rhino release taking what is possible in Grasshopper even further - now you can animate Grasshopper definitions as well as cameras and sunlight, and measure real-world illumination values — all right in Grasshopper.

V-Ray 6 plus Grasshopper = Real-time Parametric Visualisations

V-Ray 6 for Rhino is compatible with Rhino 6 and Rhino 7. V-Ray for Rhino is supported on Windows only.

We offer V-Ray for Rhino training throughout the year, this can be tailored and delivered on-site either at our classroom or on-site at your offices

There are many Rhino3d software bundles that include V-Ray for Rhino, please contact us for details.
