Normally, nXtRender registers its commands with AutoCAD during installation. On occasion, this mechanism may fail. In this case you will need to manually load nXt the first time you run it in a particular version of AutoCAD.
Use the following procedure:
Type _appload at the command line.
Navigate to the folder where nXt was installed. This is normally C:\Program Files\AccuRender nXt
Select one of the following files depending on your platform:
For example, you should be able to load the one named AccuRender nXt_22_64.arx for AutoCAD 2018 or AutoCAD Architecture 2018, on a 64 bit computer.
Check the AutoCAD command line to verify that the application loaded without error. At this point you should be able to type nxt or ar5 to launch the application. You should not have to repeat this procedure again for this version of AutoCAD. Simply typing nxt or ar5 at the command prompt should cause nxt to load. You may need to repeat this procedure if you install another version of AutoCAD.
Wonder if anyone can help. At home I run Windows 7, at work I have Windows 10.At home I use Accurender 3 with Acad ADT3, installed by loading my old Accurender 3 disk, the downloading the latest *arx file, which I see on my home computer is Accuren3_2000.Can I still download the Accuren3_2000 update from anywhere, and will it work with the office set up anyway? I have tried simply copying the Accuren3_2000.arx from home to work into the Accurender folder in the usual location, but when trying…See More
"I'm guessing it's the same problem. nXt has to be present for a conversion to work properly with a drawing that has nXt data. That's a known issue. Converting using any other method probably will not work properly if…"
"I think Norton mentioned that he did the conversion using TrueView, not the AutoCAD itself. He is still on ver. 2010 I suppose, otherwise he could do renderings directly in 2018. Maybe TrueView isn't quite versionwise correct as regards to…"
"One additional thought.
A known issue when saving drawings to a previous version is that nXt must be loaded and running before you convert the drawing. Try the following:
1. Open your 2018 drawing in AutoCAD.
2. Start nXt by typing…"
"Interesting. I'm not sure what I can do about it-- the oldest AutoCAD I have available for testing is 2013. AutoCAD 2010 is actually 12 years old which is an eternity in software. You can try sending me a simple converted…"
"yes... is every 3d model that I I import from autocad 2018 to autocad 2010 and it dosent matter that I convert the drawing in trueview to dwg 2010 it continues the error, it happens this way, I open the drawing in autocad 2010 then I…"
