Photorealistic Renderer for Rhino

NXT is a completely new render engine for Rhino. The goal is to make high quality renderings of your designs very easy to create, even if you are not a master.

Create photoreal images with HDRI lighting, realistic materials, reflection, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, soft shadows, depth of field, post-effects filtering and more.
