Revit materials.png Load the Materials Dialog to assign a nXt material to a Revit material.

This dialog will display all of the materials used in the Revit drawing in the left pane.

You can load an existing nXt Library Material to be used for any of the Revit Materials listed.

To do so:

Select a material on the left.

Use the Load button to select an AccuRender material that is saved on the disk. You can select any of the materials downloaded from the IRender nXt Libraries, which can be downloaded from this link: http://www.renderplus.com/wp2/download/, or any materials that you have created and saved on your disk.

Use the Import button to quickly reuse the mapped materials from a similar drawing, where you have already created AccuRender Materials for the Revit materials.

Use the Clear button to remove the mapping, so that only the color, reflection, and transparency of the Revit material will be used for the rendering.

"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…"

"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…"

"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes.  In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"

"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."
