We have some important news about the future of the three Autodesk plug-ins for Rhino that we currently offer. As of January 7th 2017, Autodesk will no longer develop new versions or sell the T-Splines, Shape Modeling, and Real-time Renderer Plug-ins for Rhino. We have made this decision to simplify our portfolio and focus efforts to better serve our customers with Autodesk products.
For most Rhino 5 users, nothing will change. You will still be able to use your installed software without interruption as long as you want, and in most cases you can even install and activate your software on new machines.
We will not update these plug-ins for Rhino 6 or any future versions. For those who want to continue to use T-Spline technology beyond Rhino 5, Autodesk has integrated T-Splines in Autodesk Fusion 360 and plans to continue to actively develop it. Similarly, the high-quality surfacing and visualization technology found in the Shape Modeling and Real-time Renderer plug-ins have been integrated into Autodesk Alias.
If you’re interested in subscribing to Autodesk Fusion 360, there will be significant Black Friday promotional pricing available from November 25th-28th, 2016. Please visit Fusion 360 on the Autodesk Store during these dates to take advantage.
