AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Does anyone know how to get a decal image to follow a certain face/profile/extrusion? I need to graphic to follow the outside profile. I did a quick rendering so you can see what I'm trying to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

It's difficult to figure out how this thing is in 3D. Try to send solid or even wireframe image of it.

If I got it right, you are talking about mapping planar bitmap on vertical triangle surface. I think u have to do the whole rectangular bitmap in photo editor and than use planar mapping option in NXT. For the upper left corner you can use point filter to get local .Y coord of the triangle top corner and az .X coord the left lower corner.

This sort of thing works better with UV mapping, which AutoCAD does not have.  Blender has good UV mapping-- you can export an .obj file and import it with nXt.  We just had a discussion on the topic here.

Continuous Recessed Lighting Issues

Hi I use AutoCAD Architecture and have been having on going problems with a recessed can light block. I have completed 3 renderings now in which I have had to spend days trying to get my recessed lighting to work. Other lights work, and occasionally some of the can recessed lights will show up. I have exploded the block and added them individually, I have aimed the light and rotated it every which way, but most of the time nothing works.  I have tested out the problem on my current rendering…See More
