AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I just saw your newsletter on IES Patterns, etc. Can I use them with AutoCAD?

I am attaching a ZIP file of the 30 IES patterns.

You should be able to unzip these and use them, or any manufacturer IES files from the web with nXt Render. Here are 6 of the 30 patterns.

Here is a link to images of the 30 patterns. For many situations, one of these patterns may be ideal:

To use IES lights with nXtRender, follow these instructions:

Use the following steps to attach an IES file distribution to a light source:

  • Create the light in the usual way.
  • Right click on the light in the list and select Properties... from the menu
  • Change the Light Pattern to Goniometry File
  • Click the Browse... button and select the .ies file.
  • Normally you will want to use the file to define the intensity of the source as well. Click the From File checkbox under Brightness to do this.

Can I create a new custom light fixture block that I can attach IES info from a manufacturer to?

You should be able to assign the IES light to a light in a block, save it away, and use it in other drawings.

"I really have no idea.  This software hasn't been supported for more than a decade.  Anything you can get to work will be fine from a licensing perspective, I just don't have much to offer you."

Accurender 3 + Acad ADT3 + Windows 10

Wonder if anyone can help. At home I run Windows 7, at work I have Windows 10.At home I use Accurender 3 with Acad ADT3, installed by loading my old Accurender 3 disk, the  downloading the latest *arx file, which I see on my home computer is Accuren3_2000.Can I still download the Accuren3_2000 update from anywhere, and will it work with the office set up anyway? I have tried simply copying the Accuren3_2000.arx from home to work into the Accurender folder in the usual location, but when trying…See More

"I'm guessing it's the same problem.  nXt has to be present for a conversion to work properly with a drawing that has nXt data.  That's a known issue.  Converting using any other method probably will not work properly if…"

"I think Norton mentioned that he did the conversion using TrueView, not the AutoCAD itself. He is still on ver. 2010 I suppose, otherwise he could do renderings directly in 2018. Maybe TrueView isn't quite versionwise correct as regards to…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to norton torres's discussion I GOT AN ERROR WHILE RENDERING IN AUTOCAD 2010
"One additional thought.  A known issue when saving drawings to a previous version is that nXt must be loaded and running before you convert the drawing. Try the following: 1. Open your 2018 drawing in AutoCAD. 2. Start nXt by typing…"

"Interesting.  I'm not sure what I can do about it-- the oldest AutoCAD I have available for testing is 2013.  AutoCAD 2010 is actually 12 years old which is an eternity in software.  You can try sending me a simple converted…"
