Centric Software Teams Up with Rhino 3D to Supercharge Design

Centric PLM and Rhino 3D integration will empower design teams to save time, boost creativity and enhance collaboration 

CAMPBELL, Calif., December 27, 2022Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, proudly announces its partnership with Rhinoceros (Rhino) 3D, a leading CAD solution provider. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.  

Rhino 3D is a CAD flagship application by Rhinoceros® that is used for 3D design, rapid prototyping, 3D printing and more across industries including product design, industrial design, architecture, multimedia and graphic design. Rhino is highly customizable and offers compatibility with many other types of software, supporting over 30 CAD file formats for importing and exporting.  

This partnership is the latest in a series of collaborations with 3D solution providers and will enable Centric PLM® users to work with Rhino designs through Centric PLM Connect,” explains Ron Watson, VP of Product at Centric Software. “Rhino users will be able to connect new designs with PLM, access PLM libraries for such things as pre-defined components, starting templates, trim, colors, share 3D views with non-Rhino users in the PLM interface to quickly gather feedback and input style property information from Rhino directly into Centric, ultimately saving time and driving more creative and collaborative design.”  

Like all Centric innovations and integrations, the partnership with Rhino was developed in direct response to the needs of Centric’s customers. With 3D design and virtual sampling on the rise, streamlining design is high on the agenda. 

In line with our strategy of being as open-ended as possible and to integrate Centric solutions with all leading 3D design applications, we are delighted to announce our partnership with Rhino 3D,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “Integrations such as these empower our customers with greater visibility, collaboration and time saved, enabling them to focus bringing the best possible products to market efficiently.”
