I'm an authorized reseller for Rhinoceros 3D and related products from Robert McNeel & Associates. You can learn about them and my advanced Rhino training material and order online here. Prefer to pay via Interac Email Money Transfer? Just drop me a line.
With all McNeel products the educational version is identical to the commercial version, the only restriction is that the license cannot be transferred to someone else. It can even legally be used for commercial work, during and after your education. "Upgrading" to the commercial license is simple: when a new version becomes available and you no longer qualify for the educational discount, you buy the regular commercial upgrade.
Proof of status is required: student or faculty id, or purchase order.
Lab kits are available only to schools. They can be installed on all the machines in one room, or as a floating license for 30 users over a network.
