AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Can't seem to get nXtRender to do anything in AutoCad Architectural 2017

Hey Everyone,

Thanks for the add.  I just downloaded nXt Render yesterday, and followed the instructions, and no matter what I do, I can't get any of the textures to "stick" to my ACA models.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Hey Roy,

Thanks for posting back.  I'll be honest.  I'm a newbie to Autocad (a year experience), and very, very new to rendering.  I'm including a video to show you the problem I'm having.  I know it's 100% user error, but I think that this product is right for what I'm trying to do, I just need a little help in the right direction.  Thanks for any help you can provide.


Try getting out of 2dwireframe-- click on the thing on the upper left of the viewport and try selecting something else -- wireframe should be fine.

I like going into Stylemanager-- selecting Multi-Purpose Objects->Material Definitions to make the changes.

Make sure you are running this "QK09" version:

And send me that file if you will. You can use this link to send it to us:

I'll see if I can get it to work here.

"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."
