Backups

If you need to backup your files, before restoring your Windows system, you can visit SID-Library. Before you go to the Library with your laptop, it is required that you have removed your hard drive out of your laptop and that you have an external hard drive with you to copy your important files on it.

Rhino 6 available for TU students

Finally, TU Delft students can download Rhino 6 which comes now with Grasshopper built in. Rhino 6 is only available for Windows. Use your TU e-mail address to get Rhino 6 with a free license.

Your TU e-mail address is not your NetID@student.tudelft.nl but is in general your initials separated with dots and surname and sometimes followed by a dash and a number if you have a very common surname. If you have your TU e-mail forwarded to another (web)mail service and you still haven’t received an e-mail with your serial number, check also your SPAM folder.

Mac users will have to wait or you can install Windows on your MacBook or iMac with Boot Camp or a virtualisation application like Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox.

Boot Camp is part of macOS and is for free. Parallels Desktop and VMWare Fusion are not for free. Parallels Desktop you can buy at SURFspot with a student discount. Virtualbox is for free, but might not work very well with 3D applications like Rhino.
For Windows you will need a license which is also available at SURFspot.
