T-Splines 2.3 r6240 Plugin for Rhino | 15.53 Mb
The T-Splines free trial is a fully functional version that will allow you to save 25 times. After that, T-Splines is still functional except it will not save, render or convert to NURBS or meshes. T-Splines allows you to create smooth, organic surfaces, edit them quickly, and export them for manufacturing without remodeling. Learn more about T-Splines v2.
T-Splines v2 provides a rich suite of tools to generate free-form surfaces. Because T-Splines is based on Rhino, you can create optimal models by taking advantage of both T-Splines and Rhino commands to create models for architecture, industrial design, jewelry, and marine. Read user manual.
The T-Splines free trial requires a copy of Rhino 4 SR6 or later to run. T-Splines will run on any system that meets the minimum requirements for Rhino 4, though at least 2 GB RAM is recommended.

Extending your 25 saves trial as long as possible
We recently switched from a fixed-time trial to this flexible trial that lets you spend time with the software whenever you can squeeze it in. So, go ahead and install the trial today, and try the software when you have time! If T-Splines is installed and a Rhino file is saved with no T-spline surface in the scene, none of your 25 saves will be used. Only if there is a T-spline object in the scene will one of your trial saves be used.
Save time with powerful T-Spline features
The T-Splines features are all focused on creating a powerful toolset for organic modeling. See these features in action on our tutorials page. Additionally, you can use many Rhino commands when working with T-spline surfaces.
Axial and radial symmetry
Manipulators: Translate, rotate, scale
Set pivot, attenuation, UVN model
Selection: vertex, edge, face, tangency handles
Select grip loop
Select edge ring
Toggle smooth mode
Convert T-spline to mesh
Convert T-spline to NURBS
Convert subdivision surface/mesh to NURBS
Set surface layout
Extract control polygon
Curvature graph edges
Use familiar Rhino commands to edit your T-Spline model
T-Splines is very tightly integrated into Rhino. Rhino commands can be used directly on a T-spline surface or on the control points of the surface.
The general rule is that Rhino commands that work on polysurfaces also work on T-spline surfaces. Some of them convert the T-spline surface to a NURBS surface, and others keep the surface as a T-spline. Below is an extensive list of Rhino commands, with an explanation of how they work with T-spline surfaces.
