Evolve vs Rhino

Recommended Posts

 

Hello, I am designer of soles for footwear in 3d, design with Rhinoceros.

I'm looking for videos, solidthinking Evolve tutorials for soles or shoes and I can not find.

Is there anything on this subject?

Also know the differences between Evolve and Rhinoceros, some person who works with both programs.

Thank you very much

Hi kisar3,

There are several videos on youtube that show the surface creation techniques of Evolve.

Evolve and Rhino are quite similar in terms of core capabilities on modeling and editing. Here are some noteworthy aspects of Evovle:

  1. Construction history for seamless editing and modifying
  2. Mesh modeling and editing
  3. Physically accurate rendering
  4. Interface with topology optimization suit, i.e solidThinking Inspire
  5. Available on both Mac and PC since inception

If you are trying to create specific shapes, feel free to post your request here and I will do my best to help.

Hello, Can you tell me brands that use Evolve for footwear?

Why does it seem more powerful Evolve, (have Parasolido kernel, be parametric and have a reasonable price), there is not much information, examples, tutorials, and there is so little activity in the forum?

Thank you

Hi Kisar3,

yes there is lack of information and activity.  Evolve is a very slow and unresponsive

software even with a small project. Almost every change has a long response time. Rhino is

more responsive, but if you want parametric CAD than I suggest look elsewere.

I wasted a lot of time with trial version.

Regards

Comparing responsiveness between Rhino and Evolve is a bit like comparing apples to oranges.  Rhino is simply a surface modeler without parametrics or full construction history.  Evolve is a surface, solid, and polygonal modeler all with full construction history.  If you find that construction history is not needed and slowing the modeling process, you always have the option to remove construction history, which will speed up calculation time.  The geometry in Evolve is based on Parasolid, which is very robust and allows models to be passed to any CAD or CAM tool without geometry inherent with surface modelers.  So in this context it is like complaining about your 200mph Ferrari not getting the same fuel economy as your Prius.

Evolve also runs natively on Mac and is EXACTLY the same as the Windows version.  This is difficult from the development perspective, as can be seen in Rhino's efforts on Mac.

Having said all that, we are working on a completely new version of Evolve for 2018 that will be much easier to use and learn,  and is being optimized to run as efficiently as possible.  Stay tuned.
