Rhino is known for its powerful capabilities to model any 3D freeform shape with total precision. That makes it possible to send models to laser cutters, milling machines or 3D printers.
The 3D architectural models that include VisualARQ objects can also be sent to a 3D printer. The STL is the most used file format for 3D printing machines.
Tips to convert an architectural model into a 3D printable model.
Savanna 3D block library
Savanna3D is a collection of over 1300 detailed 3-D models in 3DM format and Grasshopper definitions. These models (which include furniture, fixtures, handrails, office equipment and more) have materials included in Rhino 6 and are ready to be inserted into Rhino and VisualARQ to give you a head start.
The complete Savanna 3D library is included in one of the VisualARQ purchase options but it can also be purchased individually (contact firstname.lastname@example.org).

For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper™ is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.http://www.grasshopper3d.com/

Lands Design is a software for designing gardens, green spaces, and landscapes in Rhino. It provides tools for producing technical drawings in 2D and 3D of the green space to work with, and realistic images and virtual tours. Lands Design has a wide database with more than 1800 species, each one with their 2D and 3D realistic representation, their technical specifications, and detailed characteristics. Lands Design includes tools to arrange trees, shrubs, parterres, etc. individually, in rows, forests, etc.. and also tools for easily modeling terrains in 3D.http://www.lands-design.com/
