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...

"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."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio ground plane
"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…"

"good image and nice montage... the only thing is that the sky is too blue ... a light colour and would make it perfect"

AR Studio ground plane

The ground plane in Accurender Studio appears as a rectangular surface under the object rather than extending to the horizon.See More
