AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

For some reason when I try to render my models I am getting double shadows which don't seem to be representing the sun as the location I set. I have no other lights in the drawing. Even if I turn the sun off I seem to be getting shadows. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi show us an example,  and attach the drawing, some basic things,  check your units, put the model close to the wcs origin.

I will attach image soon just have to get it off work pc. Units are millimetres as that's what we work in and I have drawn the model at 0,0. It's like the sun is shining from two directions I have set the azimuth and altitude myself. Even when I try render a front elevation with no sun or lighting I am still getting shadows appearing which I don't want. Thanks for your help

Hard to say without seeing a picture (and perhaps even a model.)  If the shadows resolve when you let the rendering cook for a while this is likely normal behavior (the shadows are temporary artifacts caused by sky hemisphere lighting.)  If the shadows do not resolve but seem sharp and permanent then something is probably going wrong.

maybe you are using the studio preset?

Purchased a new subscription to Autodesk. When I logged into Autodesk, it automatically upgraded my version I was using and installed 2021 version. Now my AccuRender NXT does not work nor will it load on 2021 version.I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get support but I am not receiving anything.I have paid and downloaded the latest version of NXT but it's not working nor is the support working. Having been an NXT CUSTOMER for many years, I am extremely disappointed in the support.Not sure…See More

"Yeah-- like I mentioned the caustics are accurate but could be annoying.  Things that might alter it include changing the sun angle so it's not striking the chair's metal surfaces so directly, changing the roughness of the chair…"
