AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I inserted quite a few trees, rendered just fine with all the trees. Closed the drawing, pulled it up the next day, rendered again and all the trees disappeared. What could be the problem? See attached image.

Looks like I know what the problem is. I found out that INSUNITS matters, a lot! Never had to worry about INSUNITS being UNITLESS. When I changed it to INCHES, the trees showed back up.

Now the problem is all my materials that have been assigned are now the wrong scale. They are VERY LARGE numbers. Anyway to globally fix them?

Something else is likely up with this drawing.  I'm pretty sure Unitless will default to meters which should still work fine with the trees-- although the scale will be wrong.  It's also possible that explicitly setting the insertion scale may correct whatever the initial problem was.

No, there's no way to globally scale the materials.  If you're using unusual values for things like Tile Size in the material editor, that's a clue that your units are probably not correct.

"Those are all exceptional work, Peter! Congratulations!On this one only: bricks look big to me, but maybe I am wrong. Also some areas in shadow look still a bit noisy."

"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."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"Sorry-- just got back into town last night.  Infinite objects aren't supported in ArStudio-- so yes-- the ground plane has to be represented by a finite object, in this case a rectangle.  You don't have to use mine, you can use…"
