Design + Optimization + Fabrication


Teach, learn and share different methods of fabrication for industrial designers, architects, and engineers where Rhinoceros is involved in any cycle of the manufacturing process.
This RhinoFabStudio community is a great place for sharing information about hardware used to fabricate your ideas, your digital models and your Grasshopper definitions.
RhinoFabStudio is open to everyone and welcomes any Rhinoceros compatible program that helps you accomplish your ideas.
RhinoFabStudio urges all Rhino ARTs and ARTCs to post your events, workshops and classes which pertain to fabrication methods and/or processes.

Datakit announces a new update of their Import/Export plugins

Datakit, specialist in 3D interoperability, announces the new version (2022.1) of its technical data conversion SDK. 

Since 1994 Datakit facilitates the exchange of 2D and 3D data for users and developers of CAD, CAD/CAM, 3D visualization, simulation, metrology, and modeling applications. The latest version of CrossManager (Datakit software for file-to-file conversion of most 3D and 2D formats) and CrossCadWare (reading and writing libs for 2D and 3D software editors) improve once again the interoperability between different standard and native formats.
Datakit conversion libraries V2022.1 bring new reading functionalities for Inventor, OBJ, REVIT 3D. They also add CATIA V5 writing functionalities. 

Software editors integrating release 2022.1 of Datakit SDK will now be able to:
  • Read the predefined views, as well as the FDT (PMI) from the INVENTOR 3D assembly files 
  • Read the alpha channel of colors (transparency) from OBJ 3D and RHINO 3D. 
  • Write in CATIA V5 the Views named by the users.

Datakit is constantly upgrading its SDK to remain compatible with the latest versions from publishers, as well as with their previous versions. 

Datakit V2022.1 adds new versions and now makes it possible to: 

  • Read JT files up to version 10.7 
  • Read older REVIT versions (2011,2012,2013 and 2014) in complement with REVIT 2015 to 2022 versions.
  • Extract data from Solid Edge 2022, the latest version of Solid Edge. 
  • Read the 2022 SP0 version of Solid Works, but also its ancestors from 2006 to 2008. 
  • Read NX 1992, 1996, 2000, the last versions of NX.
How to test Datakit file-to-file software
End users of 2D and 3D applications can download the software and obtain a demo license on the official pages of CrossManager and CrossCad/Plg.

Hull Shape Assistant plug-in in open Beta

Hull Shape Assistant (HSA) is a new Rhino plug-in providing shape modelling assistance tools focused on design, fairing and reverse engineering.

HSA’s geometry is composed of parts which may be surfaces or a set of curves prepared for lofting a surface. HSA also accepts as an input already existing polysurfaces in form of 1 part, with no specific option to modify it.


• automatic joining and trimming of parts, according to defined limiting top, transom and/or skeg shape;
• automatic generation of flat side and flat bottom;
• real-time information regarding distance from reference geometry, which can be points clouds, curves, meshes, surfaces or polysurfaces;
• real-time generation of sections, buttocks and waterlines;
• simplified control over surface curvature and zebra analysis;
• real-time information regarding ship hydrostatic parameters – HSA will try to fill small gaps in imperfect shape if input is non-watertight;
• simple clipping over length;
• simple compact panel for control of plugin functionality.

Currently HSA supports only symmetric hull shapes.
