Rhino Render Options

Tools > Options > Rhino Render Options

The Rhino Render options manage settings for the built-in rendering engine.


Two-stage render, ask for rectangular region to render first

Render and RenderPreview commands render the scene in two stages. Render the most important detail first to make sure it looks right. If it does, wait for the image to finish. If not, cancel the render and continue editing.


Number of render threads

Controls the number of threads used for rendering. If you have a dual core or dual or quad CPU computer, you can speed up rendering by using multiple simultaneous render threads. There is very little overhead in setting up the multiple threads.


The render automatically uses as many threads as there are cores in the CPU.


Set a number of cores to use.

Thread priority

Controls the relative priority of the rendering compared to other processes. The lower the priority, the more responsive your computer will be while rendering, at the expense of rendering speed, and vice versa.
