Spherene for Rhino from Spherene is released. Spherene metamaterial emulates isotropic bulk material but with variable density. Create models for additive manufacturing, lightweight structures, and efficient infills. Intuitively control the industry’s only surface conformal minimal surface for time savings.

What if you could design shoes like you are growing a coral, using generative software to automatically create the exact properties you require throughout your product, while minimizing the amount of material that you need to produce it? Spherene asks. And what if you could produce these sophisticated structures not just with 3D printing, but also with molds? This is essentially what Spherene´s plugin for Rhino enables you to do!

spherene metamaterial is built to enhance design and manufacturing. It mimics bulk material properties, cutting design time. Create spherene metamaterial through the API or integrate it into your existing CAD workflow.
