What is Dynamic Display?

Dynamic Display is a real-time visualization tool for Rhino that allows the user analyze models in several ways:

  • Clash detection
  • Sectioning
  • Mirroring

Now available for just $35.00

Dynamic Display is available for Rhinoceros 4.0 and Rhinoceros 5.0 (32-bit and 64-bit).

Commands

ddInterfere

This command allows you to check for interferences within a model that contains closed polysurfaces or closed meshes by comparing all the objects each against one another.

This command use all your CPU cores so if your CPU have time you will be able to orbit your view while interferences are computed even run a new command or hide a layer.

Every time a command ends, interferences will be computed again.

This command runs only in shaded display modes.

ddClippingObject

This is a slower but more flexible version of ClippingPlane command. Allows use any closed polysurface or mesh as clipping object.

If clipping objects are created while history is enabled in the editor, these can be modified later and section will be updated automatically.

This command runs only in shaded display modes.

ddMirrorPlane

This command defines a plane and enables a display conduit that redraws symmetrically all the geometry along that plane.

Could be used to model symmetrical objects like a yacht hull.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I share Dynamic Display installer?

Yes, you can, and we’ll be very grateful. We want as much people as possible to use Dynamic Display.

Does Dynamic Display modify the document?

No, is doesn’t. Dynamic Display is an analysis plug-in, and it will not modify any document you may open.

Would it be possible for the ClippingObject to clip the Curves as well?

No. Currently Dynamic Display only works with meshable objects like surfaces, polysurfaces and meshes.

Would it be possible to render Dynamic Display results?

Currently Dynamic Display it’s only a display trick. If you want to obtain clipped meshes use ddExtractMesh command.

Known Bugs and limitations

Mirror plane has no representation so sometimes is difficult to figure out where it is.
Currently objects into blocks are not clipped.
