Distortions in nXt renderd AutCAD Architecture Curved Walls

Please see the attached images.  

In AutoCAD Architecture's native renderer, and in its 3d display, the curved walls appear smooth.  In nXt the materials are uneven (with sometimes extra lines that protrude from the walls).  Distortions also appear in straight walls which should be flat and smooth though the problem is less pronounced.  

I tried changing the material definitions but the problem persists.  

Could this be some sort of scale definition issue?

The problem persists with all the rendering engines (standard path and hybrid).

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

This is typically a units problem or a coordinate system problem.  Check the units by typing _DDUNITS at the command line and looking at the insertion units.  If they're correct, make sure the model is not located too far from the origin.  Coordinate systems such as "state plane" will not work correctly with nXt-- the model will have to be moved closer to the origin.

Yes, Roy, the units were correctly set but the model was very far from the origin (forgot about that issue).  Looks fine now.  Thanks very much for your prompt reply.

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
