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.

It this good enough?  I'm currently reworking the interface to make it a bit easier to use.  Since I wrote that page I released an AutoCAD plugin that works within AutoCAD similar to the current product.

I am an old Accurender user. I now need to try and re-create some old images from old models. (about 20 years old)

I have now downloaded Accurender Studio, and now work with AutoCAD 2016 and 2017

I have 2 questions related to Accurender Studio:

1) Your write-up states:

Out-of-AutoCAD operation
Option for out-of-process rendering so you can continue to work in AutoCAD.

How do you get this to work? I see no options. AutoCAD is locked up while app is running.

2) Can this be installed as a portable app? For instance, I have a corporate computer that runs AutoCAD but I don't have admin rights to install the .msi installer. Can I just copy the files to a local folder and load the dll file within AutoCAD without going through a system install?

1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process". 

2-  No, installation will require admin access.

"Okay. I've changed it to a png file. What steps do I take within AR Studio to get it to work properly"

"Use png for this-- it's much more reliable.  All I did was go into the Material Editor and replace your tif with my png."

"Well, I've tried what you suggested, but I still can't get it to work. I'll send you the model and the decal. Maybe I've got something wrong."

"I tried closing down AutoCAD, restarting it, opening the drawing, loading nXt and AR Studio and it still didn't show up. However, it did suddenly appear when I started the interactive render."
