AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hi,

I have a issue (maybe bug?) happening when sending renderings to farm.  It is happening with only one dwg file - terrain (everything in attachment) - when it is sent to farm it takes very long to produce model for farm (10 minutes) and file *.nxtmodel for farm model is HUGE (over 10 GB). Terrain is quite simple modeled as mass group (couple of mass elemets grouped together), also I tried to convert terrain to 3D solid which it didn't help at all (*.nxtmodel size dropped to 8 GB). But when I export dwg to plain dwg, everything works fine. Can you look at it, Roy?

Thanks.  I may not get to it for a day or so.

OndraZ, I tried your model here without any issues. The models translated, loaded and rendered all under 2mins on a 2 computer farm. All 3 files acted the same as well. I rendered them at 1700x1100.

Thanks for trying, Garret. I tried the file I've sent again...and I'm still getting huge model (now 5GB) - see printscreen in attachment. Autocad Architecture 2010, Win 7 Pro 64 bit, nXtFarm 276

Here;'s what I am getting using the 'MG' version of the file. There is quite a difference for sure!

So after some time I found out what was the problem. If mass group has decal applied -> nXtmodel is about  over 10 GB. After removing decal, nXtmodel size drops to 205 MB and everything works fine...

Interesting.  I may ask you for a little help in reproducing this when I get back to the office next week.  It may be a bug.

"I'm not sure if you are applying the tree to the region as a decal or as part of a material. if a decal onto the region, I don't think AR will allow 2 decals. I guess you could stack them but I don't think one applies to the other…"

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More
