RhinoTerrain 2.0 

Powerful Digital Terrain Modelling for Rhino 5.0

RhinoTerrain™, a Rhinoceros plugin, is a powerful tool used to easily create digital terrain models. It is based on a robust and reliable constrained triangulation algorithm, able to handle huge data volumes. Fully integrated into Rhinoceros, RhinoTerrain™ uses all the geometric and graphical computing capabilities of this free-form modeler.

RhinoTerrain™ is suitable to anyone who may have an interest for realistic 3D visualization of Digital Elevation Models (DEM) or engineering works, ie: architects, surveyors, offices study, local authorities, designers etc.
