AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I just purchase an Archvision RPC license.

I have the path C:\RPC added to AutoCAD and NXT options-search path.

I also load the rpc driver rpcdb.dbx in AutoCAD.

I can place the RPC's into my AutoCAD scene.

The RPC's are not visible in the NXT rendering.

I have used RPC's in the past with NXT, but now that I have a RPC license, its a no go.

Any thoughts?

Try the render command in Auto Cad just to be sure the RPC's loaded well into the drawing. If it renders in with AutoCad naive render then it should in Nxt.

I try your suggestion, same result with AutoCAD native render, no RPC's.

(I do not think RPCS work with native Acad render engine anyway)

Can you ha

They do. Meanwhile do you have Dashboard installed and it can recognize your license? 

I can start a "new" drawing and drop in RPC, now it renders fine.

Must be the file I was working in. I still don't understand why this particular file wont work with RPC.

Try purging and audit the drawing to repair it.

Thanks Akinlolu......... thats a good idea.

I "rebuilt" the file by cut and pasting all into a "new" .dwg.

All renders are fine now. No worries! (my client is happy)

I appreciate your input.

cheers,

Barry

"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."
