AccuRender nXt

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.

"Check the scale of the model-- use the _DDUNITS command.  Make sure the insertion scale matches the actual units in your model. I'll check on the batch stuff when I get a chance-- working on something else right now."

NXT Settings - Was ist das? - what´s that?

Ich habe gerade die Testversion des neuesten Updates von 355.Wenn ich in meine Acad 2009 Lampen mit Licht einfüge und render, dann sind die Lampen viel zu hell.Die Einstellungen für die Lampen sind wie vorher auch und Standard bei 100 Watt.Ich hatte sonst eher das Problem, dass die Lampen zu dunkel geleuchtet haben.Woran liegt das nun?Und dann noch eine Frage: wenn man Bilder einzeln rendert, dann kann man ja im Renderfenster verschiedene Einstellungen anpassen, Helligkeit, Nachbelichtung,…See More

Multiple installations

I have a 3 user licence and nXt installed on 3 computers.In addition to this I will soon be working from two locations on two separate computers.Both computers will only be used by me and never at the same time.Is it therefore possible to install nXt on both of them under the licence agreement, and if so, how?See More
