What does this mean?
I want to buy Rhino 6 but I have a Mac, what can I do?
As mentioned, Rhino 6 licences are now cross-platform but we are awaiting the Mac release. If you'd like to purchase Rhino for Mac without getting stuck on version 5 and having to pay the upgrade fee, you can now request a legacy licence using your Rhino 6 licence.
This will also apply for any one that would like to purchase Rhino 6 with a plug-in that hasn't been updated yet. Rhino for Windows users can request a legacy licence here:
Please note: Legacy licences will only run on the same machine as Rhino 6 .

There are now three ways to use your licence in V6:
