Hello there. I been using Lw for modeling, so upgrade its great to Modo, but I must to start to work in architectural models, I wondering, wich is better for that job, Modo or Rhinoceros. Forgive my english, any help will be great. Thanks

They are complementary tools, not competitive tools, why? well modo is a Polygon modeling tool for design visualisation, Rhinoceros is a NURBS modeler for prototyping. Two different tools suited for different applications.

NURBS tools are used for industrial design because the curves are mathematically defined and may be used to create models for machining, where polygon models would not be sufficiently accurate.

Polygon modeling tools are used for visualisation because they are better suited for that task.

The cost of both tools is less than half that of most major 3D applications. If you have tasks that require both tool then use both!

modo would be best

>> Can you do this as efficient in modo?

Yes,

Luxology have a training Video for Architectural Modeling Architectural Modeling: The Charles Eames House (http://www.luxology.com/store/14_architectural_modeling/index.aspx), which uses similar polygon modeling techniques.

Are you sure this is as efficient?
(Did you see the last part of the vid)

Somebody told me, that rhinoceros recieve autocad models, keeping his 3d wall and everything, its a huge benefit if you work with an architect.

and modo works well with Solidworks

And LW with LwCad are very best for architectural modelisation ! I think !

Best of both worlds: LW+LWCAD (= a lightwave plugin).
