advanced rendering for AutoCAD

My new computer came with a Quadro 4000 graphics card.

Is there any way of utilizing the GPU capabilities to speed rendering up?

using other rendering engine, ha ha........

Yes, there is. Try: Octane Render, Blender Cycles, Small LUX GPU, V-Ray RT, Indigo RT, Bunkspeed, Maxwell, Thea ..... :D

maxwell and vray is cpu rendering only

V-Ray RT with GPU support:

Maxwell indeed has real time preview, but still, it is only CPU based.

VRAY RT...REAL TIME PRODUCTION...

None of the mentioned renderers are for use in AutoCAD. They are in majority stand-alone rendering suites with advanced connection plugins for the most popular 3D software programs like Maya, 3D Studio Max, Rhino 3D, Sketchup, Blender.... etc.

One of the best of Vray 2.0 is that you can use "Vray RT" as output, ie you can use the same parameters also Vray for RT, either CPU or GPU, this is a great advantage.
Picture this for animations, it is now a reality

vray in Max example...

vray using gpu is for display only, not for production

Hmm, not quite the answers I was looking for.

It's not a problem, it just seems a shame to have all that processing power sitting around doing nothing.

GPU seems to be very usefull when moving into the walkabout window. But it takes a cofee when rendering...

Still in a wait and see mode re: GPU for the type of rendering we do, but not particularly optimistic.  So far, despite all of the advertising hype, the results for others have been very mixed when doing things like Path Tracing.  

A GPU is a very different computer than a CPU, and the way the code is written changes drastically.  In the case of your 12 core machine, it would almost certainly be a case of either/or-- the GPU would have to substitute for not supplement the CPU.  Your case would be the least likely of all to show any significant improvement.

"Yep, AutoCAD (unless they've changed something very recently) does not handle UV texture coordinates on vertices very well.  It's the reason our obj importer uses a custom object.  Obj only has UV texture coordinates.…"

"Or because it did just a simple export without any other data (texture coordinates etc.) and for just that its price was really steep."

"The fact that they quit development is a pretty good indication that demand wasn't very high for this sort of thing."

"Thanks Roy. There is an application which adds OBJ export ability to AutoCAD, developed by SYCODE company. The development has been stopped at AutoCAD 2012 though. Also its price is quite high I think. Additionally, newer versions of AutoCAD…"

"It's not on the current todo list-- nor has the demand for this sort of thing been particularly high.  However, it isn't very difficult.  Either I or the guys at renderplus could certainly do it."
