AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

So, I downloaded the nXt program, installed it, click on help only to find that's it's  another silly online only help file.  Nothing local to look up.  When clicked on the link is a dead link... 404.  I try to pull up the help file directly from the accurender website only to again find that it's missing with a link to purchase an e-book for a kindle that I don't own.  What gives?  Seriously... what's up with companies refusing to allow the help file to be part of the program or worse having dead links to help files that don't exist.  Anyone know where it's hiding? 

 

Just one of the things I was looking for was about using RPC's in nXt.  I see from the forums it looks like folks are doing it, but nothing that I see about how to use them.  Many other Q's, but without a help file...

We are reworking the documentation, and must have left a bad link.

I will fix it, and add another post here in a few minutes.

Thanks!

Old help file is here:

http://wiki.mcneel.com/accurender/nxt/documentation

RPC specific help is here:

http://wiki.mcneel.com/accurender/nxt/documentation/beyond/rpc

Just ask if you need more info.

The on-line reference manual is working now at this URL:

http://www.nxtrender.com/wk/NXtRender_for_AutoCAD_Documentation.htm

The page on RPC is here:

http://www.nxtrender.com/wk/Using_Archvision_RPC_with_nXtRender.htm

We also have a printed manual, and a Kindle eBook manual available from Amazon:

(You can read Kindle books on any tablet or mobile device, or in any browser. You do not have to purchase a Kindle)

http://www.amazon.com/Rendering-AutoCAD-using-nXtRender-ebook/dp/B0...

 

While the link above works, the link from ACAD nxt help still doesn't work.

 

ACAD is going to the link http://nxtrender.com/documentation/nxtrender-for-autocad-documentat...

and you have the link as: ttp://www.nxtrender.com/wk/NXtRender_for_AutoCAD_Documentation.htm

 

Dashes vs. underscores... plus different subfolders; documentation vs. wk

Thanks, we'll clean that upo as well.

Wird es die Dokumentationen auch mal in Deutsch und das Buch bei Amazon auch mal in Deutsch geben???

We have a number of dealers now across the globe. At least one has asked us for copies of the documentation so they could translate it.

Hopefully some of the others will follow suit.

You might contact CadShop - our dealer in Austria and Switzerland, and encourage them to undertake a translation.

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type.  The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore.  You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar.  Use the Type popdown on the…"

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
