Rhino Gold seems like the best option as far as cost and efficiency.
But I want to try out the demo. I have talked to, the tech folks at
Cadblu and one of the certified instructors for RhinoGold. The
problem is before I can even try out the demo version of RhinoGlod I
have to partition my Mac hard drive, because I have limited disk
space left on the current drive so I’ll have to install a drive with
more memory 160 gig for $145.00 and the cost of installing a windows
operating system $?? just to find out if I like it…
not sure where you’re getting your …as memory and disk
space are 2 separate physical things.
sort out the problem with your mac…what os, ram amount and hard
drive capacity do you have right now?
what machine type is it?..and what processor/speed?
here’s this from rhino osx: System requirements
PowerPC or Intel Macintosh computer running OS X 10.5 or later.
Intel-based computers are generally faster than the older PowerPC
processors. At least one gigabyte of RAM is suggested. Mice with
multiple buttons and a scroll wheel are recommended; however, you
can also use a one-button Macintosh mouse. OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Rhino/OSX will take advantage of new OS X 10.5 features such as
QuickLook, which displays the contents of a Rhino document in the
Finder, without opening the document with Rhino, either in Icon or
CoverFlow view. Data files compatible with the Windows version
The Rhino files are identical between Windows Rhino V4.0 and
Rhino/OSX. Spaceball/SpaceExplorer are not supported
Only the SpaceNavigator is supported for Macintosh
