The T-Splines folks will be at SIGGRAPH this summer. Unfortunately the company says there will be no T-Splines plugin for Rhino on Mac OS X yet because the Rhino folks have not yet released a SDK (software development kit) for the Mac version. Matt Sederberg of T-Splines told Architosh that once the SDK for the Mac version of Rhino is available they will produce a T-Splines plugin for the Mac.
At SIGGRAPH 2009 this summer the company will exhibit and the likely big news will be the official unveiling of the T-Splines 2.0 plugin for Rhino on Windows. For more info visit them at: www.tsplines.com
