If you have the warning "This package is not compitable with the Rhino Installer Engine" , this means rhino is trying to install with Rhino 5 Installer Engine (see the image below).

To correct, drop the .rhi file on the file rhiexec.exe (should be located in C:\Program Files\McNeel\Rhino Installer Engine\x64).

New Excellent Features:

  • Setpoint : Grab a point to move the selected clipping plane to that point. Also controlled by commands, which can be used in macros.
  • Enter Clipping plane position
  • Save / activate clipping plane positions.
  • Create Projects for Clipping Planes.
  • Set clipping planes to objects
  • Save / restore clipping plane positions

As the project gets larger, it gets diffucult to focus on details, and we lose control over our projects. But Notilus Clipper helps you to easily organize your clipping planes with a user friendly interface.

If you have problems installing a plug-in, one reason may be because Windows has set a flag on the plug-in file. This means Windows doesn't know where this file came from. This typically happens for files downloaded from the internet or received through email.

For security purposes, Windows will not load the plug-in into Rhino unless you unblock the file.

To Unblock, follow the instructions told in

How to Use:

You can resize clipping plane area, customize settings for your rhino, enable/disable clipping planes easily.
