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.

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.

Old versions of nXt for AutoCAD

Is it still possible to download old versions (bought in 2013), of nXt for AutoCAD? Got a new PC, but cannot find my installation file. Thanks.See More

"Almost certainly.  A fix may be difficult at this point.  The code has not been touched in years."

Reflected background brightness

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?See More
