The NVIDIA Iray for Rhino render plugin gives you continual, realistic feedback as you craft your model’s form, materials, and lighting. You can render directly in any viewport as you build and refine your model.

Iray’s physically based capability predicts the behavior of real-world materials and lights, giving you accurate results with minimum setup or specialized knowledge. It also supports the NVIDIA vMaterials Library—which includes hundreds of materials—as well as material exchange capabilities with other NVIDIA  Material Definition Language (MDL)-compatible applications.
