ClimateStudio is a plugin for the Rhinoceros 3D NURBs modeler. To use ClimateStudio, you will need the following:
A newer computer with Windows OS installed on it. ClimateStudio does currently not run under Mac OS. If you have a Mac you will need to install a multi boot utility such as boot camp.
Although not strictly required, a modern graphics card that supports OpenCL and/or CUDA is highly recommended.
You need the latest version of Rhinoceros 3D version 6. A free, fully functional 90 day evaluation version is available from the McNeel web site.
If you intend to use ClimateStudio for commercial purposes, you need to request a ClimateStudio Trial from Solemma. If you are an educator or student, find out whether your school already has a ClimateStudio ambassador.
