AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

We're up to Build 0082.  This new major release of the AccuRender and nXt product line now includes a plugin that works entirely within AutoCAD just like previous versions. It's got a ton of new features and is available for free for a while.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

See the Download->AccuRender Studio menu items for more details.

No plans yet.  The new stuff is being designed to be much easier to port.  If I go that way, the first target will likely be Rhino for the Mac.

Good Morning, Roy

I downloaded AccuRender Studio this morning (version 1.0.97.0) and after installing the software, bringing up Autocad (Ver R13), running NETLOAD, installing  ArStudioAcadPluginR19.dll and typing ArStudio , I received an error message: Unhandled Exception "Unable to load DLL 'Shore.dll'.   

AutoCAD r13, WIN 7 Pr0.

Did I miss a step in the install process?

Don't recognize that dll name-- are you sure you've got it right?

My bad.  The correct spelling is Shcore.dll.

Yep-- looks like that's not available in Windows 7-- Windows 8.1 or greater.  I'll need to see what I can do, but I may not be able to get to it for a couple of weeks.

Thanks Roy. I'm sure I can exist for a couple of weeks.

I'm almost sure I had the program loaded and running on this machine some time ago.

I'm also almost sure I'll win the lottery.

You can go back a version or two using the Update Manager that's provided in the folder called AccuRender Studio updates if you want to use it right now.  I'll take the "Stable" property off of 097 so it won't nag you for an update.

Maybe hold off on that-- I'm looking at the code right now and I may try to fix this today.

Just uploaded Build 0100-- give it a try and let me know.

Good morning Roy.

Looks like a successful load. AR Studio is up and running.  No errors.

I'll do a test run later.  Should be no problem.

Thanks Roy

Rich

Thanks-- sounds good.

Roy,

Can you explain in a few words the difference between Nxt and Studio?

Or is there anywhere a post wich explains the differences?

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
