There are no limitations or functional differences between the educational and commercial versions of V-Ray for Rhino. Educational licenses for educational purposes only and not for commercial for-profit work, transfer, or resale.
V-Ray 3 for Rhino is made for designers. It's clean. It's simple. And it's now faster than ever to create great-looking renders right in Rhino.
V-Ray 3 is built to be the smartest and fastest renderer for Rhino. With new quick render presets and intuitive controls, you can focus on design, not the technical details. Its twin-engine rendering architecture can take full advantage of the latest CPU or GPU hardware. And with V-Ray's full suite of tools, you can render anything and everything - from quick design concepts to your most detailed 3D models.
