Nothing yet.
I have been forced by the company to switch to the Mac World, so far, I have been dealing with  two operating systems and jumping back and forth.... this takes up quite a bit of disk space... not a big deal on my desktop, but the laptop is running out of space quickly and often.  We just received our copy of AutoCad 2011 for Mac... I have been searching for a rendering package that will work as easy as Accurender.... don't think it exists!!!  I too would be interested in a Mac version of Accurender... Help!!!
Run the window OS on mac. Or use AutoCad rendering machine Mental Ray for your rendering on Mac. Roy is there a way to have AutoCad understand all of Nxt materials? That way Mac users assign material in Windows and render in AutoCad Mac.
Sorry for the confusion... I am running both Windows and 10 on my MacBook Pro and switching back and forth using Parallels.  I guess my problem is space at this point.  Would love to get rid of the Windows partition and gain the disk space back.  If not, I continue this way until I find another solution.  Thanks
Understood.  It's a big project (not the core code, but the UI).  No plans yet, but I'm listening.  I'll have a better idea when I see Autodesk's numbers for the Mac.
Why not just remove the windows partition and work with windows on another pc. Jpeg or other extensions created either with Mac or Windows will open on either systems so also Dwg drawings since AutoCad in now available in both platform.

an external usk harddisk?

Hi Kirk, I also use a MacBook Pro with Windows partition, but I chose not to use any virtual machine software in order to be able to use all the system resources. I don't know if Parallels do that, but I was using WMware Fusion with Win7 64bit and with a big surprise I discovered that not all the ram was used when virtualising.

Sure could use the MAC version. ; )

so, roy, have you seen the numbers for auto cad for mac yet? how are they doing? 2011's alright after a few fixes, 2012 is still annoying. neither are as easy to use as 2008 on parallels but maybe lots of others have bought in and it's worth the effort on your part.

Nothing planned for AutoCAD so far.

Having made the move to Mac also, it would be great if nXt could find its way to AutoCAD for Macintosh.

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

"Yes, it will be different.  Typing arstudio should be roughly the same operation as "running a quick test render"-- it may be a little slower, and the first time you type it, it will certainly be slower (it was before). …"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
