AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

More of an ACAD question...

Have exploded, extruded and rotated my text to be used for signage...that occurs on a curved wall.

All the letters are individual solids.

Any quick-n-easy way to get the letters repositioned/rotated along the curve of the wall? I've tried using array (polar and path) and align....failed at each.

Trying to avoid having to do each letter individually, as there will be other options on case and size that I have to do.

Images attached....

Thanks for any help,

John

Use a decal or else you have to position the extruded letterings manually

Thanks for the response....I had found an old lisp called 3DText, but couldn't get it to work.

Ended up modeling the text in SkecthUp using an extension called Shape Bender. Easy to use and did what I wanted. Imported into ACAD. Done. ACAD could use something like this...

Perspective between 3D model and background image on NXT autocad 2015

Hi, I would like to insert my 3D model on an image in background, obviously with the correct position, size and perspective lines.Is there a method to move the 3D model to adapt it at the image in background?At the moment i can only try to setting the position of my 3D model with the Autocad camera and launch the render to control if the position is correct, but it's impossible to find it. I must render my 3D model and put it in my image with Photoshop. Not a great result.Look down here, the…See More
