Subdivision, bridges, Y-branches, smooth surface patches, starpoint creation with G2 or higher continuity and much more! XirusCAD® provides a new, intuitive CAD solution for organic and freeform modeling.
XirusCAD® simulates immediate responsiveness to a broad range of geometrical parameters that are key for complex 3D modeling such as
- direct control of tangents
- direct control of curvature
- direct access to the digital object through interpolating control points
- watertight junctions with immediate smoothness control
- subdivision and local refinement with controllable smoothness
- more localized control than NURBS and fewer parameters.

NURBS: Standard CAD that is based on NURBS has several drawbacks which make the modeling process tedious and time-consuming. The consequences of the limitations of NURBS are non-interpolating control points, non-local refinement, non-intuitive and challenging handling of smoothness, junctions or curvature. The reason for these limitations are the underlying mathematics. XirusCAD® implements a superior digital geometry representation that has been developed specifically to overcome today’s limitations in 3D CAD.
Subdivision and polygons: Classical subdivision has the drawback that the control-net does not interpolate the limit surface and uv-mapping or solid modeling is more difficult than with NURBS, whereas polygon meshes do interpolate a surface but do not allow for smooth modeling.
Mirrakoi®’s newly developed digital geometry representation provides new powerful means for 3D CAD which simplify the task of complex 3D modeling, reduce training and learning costs, improve efficiency and accuracy during the modeling process and also allow for a superior design experience.

Yes. XirusCAD® is 100% compatible with NURBS. A CAD object that is modeled with XirusCAD® can be converted to NURBS at any moment during the modeling process. A “NURBS-to-augmented CAD command” is also available in order to convert a NURBS object into the native XirusCAD® geometry.
Yes. XirusCAD® is 100% compatible with meshes. A CAD object that is modeled with XirusCAD® can be converted to a mesh at any moment during the modeling process.
A mesh to XirusCAD® command will be released in the near future.
XirusCAD Download and Installation
XirusCAD® is currently developed for Rhino 6 and Rhino 5. Note that for Rhino 6 compatibility, version 6.10 or higher needs to be installed (6.9 and previous are not compatible with XirusCAD). If you have Rhino 6 already installed and it says it’s up to date, you can manually install the update by downloading the installer from McNeel’s website.
Yes. A free trial version is available on our website.
