Datakit expands its range of Rhino plug-ins

The French specialist in data transfer for CAD systems adds to their Rhino offer with new plug-ins for CreoView, Revit and IFC formats. This has also led to the creation of a bundle aimed the world of architecture and construction.

December 20, 2019 -- Rhinoceros 3D, more commonly known as  Rhino 3D, is a computer-aided design software developed by  Robert McNeel & Associates in 1992. Users have always really appreciated it, particularly those working in the fields of industrial design or architecture, for its ease of modeling complex shapes in 3D.

It’s this ease of modeling that makes makes people use it together with many other CAD systems. But for that you still need to be able to easily transfer 3D models from one system to another, which is exactly what the  import and export plug-ins developed by  Datakit will do.

This Lyon (France) publisher, partner of a hundred publishers worldwide, has been offering since 1994 a whole range of tools to exchange data between CAD systems:

  • - Conversion engine,  CrossCad/Ware;
  • - Standalone converters,  CrossManager;
  • - Plug-ins,  CrossCad/Plg.

"These are tools that our customers really appreciate because, apart from the fast and efficient data processing and the option to work in batch mode, they also value the ease of installation and use, regular updates, and the customer service efficiency", states Olivier Rigollet, CEO of Datakit.

Three new plug-ins for Rhino

The Rhino 3D import plug-ins, which already support 12 exchange formats, have been enhanced after the October update with three new formats:

  • - Revit, 3D CAD software for architecture by  Autodesk;
  • - IFC, interoperability format for BIM (Industry Foundation Classes);
  • - Creo View, 3D visualization software from  PTC’s  Creo products.

These plug-ins only require a Rhino 3D license on the workstation where they’re going to be used and use the same environment and resources as the software.

These three new plug-ins are available individually for 1200€ for a fixed license or in bundles that include several plug-ins. 

Datakit expands its range of Rhino plug-ins

Two bundles depending on the use

These three new plug-ins have led to the creation of a bundle dedicated to the world of architecture that one can now find with the existing general import bundle.

  • - The  Creo View plug-in is integrated into the existing   Rhino import bundle, which now supports 13 formats and is available for 1500€. Users who own this general bundle and have it up to date can get this new plug-in free of charge.
  • Revit and  IFC plug-ins are the subject of a new  BIM bundle for Rhino, which is available for 1200€, which is quite a good economic investment for Rhino 3D users working in the field of architecture and construction.

The Rhino plug-ins are based on Datakit’s topological model that, in addition to a perfect re-reading of the native geometrical data, makes it possible to manage links between these geometries, which offers the possibility of working from exact solids similar to those generated in the source software. These plug-ins are fully compatible with the creation and deformation of solids in Rhino 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0.

Datakit, the publisher with the widest range of plug-in formats for Rhino 3D, is also Robert McNeel & Associates' provider of the default SolidWorks reading tools included in Rhino 3D.

So, no Rhino 3D without Datakit plug-ins!
