Rhino 3D had capability to create complex models with complex surface transitions (free form model) without any plugin.
What about SolidWorks. I like SolidWorks because of its parameteric feature while Rhino isn't parameteric.
Power Surfacing for SolidWorks® Overview
There are some tools for organic modeling in SW and all depends on how complex is your complex model is. Do you have a sample?
With the advancement in Additive Manufacturing, the industry is geared towards Genarative Design which will offer better tools creating organic shapes as it evolves in future.
Can you model something like this in SolidWorks without using any plug-in?
This seems to be a basic surfacing job. There are plenty of online tutorials to cover this kind of challenges.
Alex,.. hmm,.. you do recall,.. asked basically the same question >6mos ago.. and the answer is NO... you would need a SubD modeling add-on (btw, that is T-Splines (a add-in) shown/used within Rhino3D) to get that capability.
Can solidworks model any shape which Rhino produces?
Check out some of the stuff Paul Salvador posts.
