AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Importing a 3d studio model with textures into NXT?

Akinlolu had a great resource for free 3ds models but I don't know how to import them while keeping the textures attached.  Is there a proper way of doing this or do I need to reapply the jpeg maps? 

I can insert the 3ds model via autocad but no textures.  When I try inserting through the NXT widgets, under textured mesh objects, Autocad crashes. 

 

I'm using Autocad 2011 and NXT build 249,  Win 7 64

 

Thanks

VERY HEAVY.FILE OF 2MB(3DS) AFTER INSERTING CAN TURN TO 57MB
Remove all you do not need and purge.
3ds file can be inserted in Acad using 3dsin command or in Accurender as textured mesh (like obj files). 3DS file has some polygon number limitations though, which obj format hasn't.
The nXt widget shouldn't be crashing.  Send a link to the offending file and I'll give it a try here.  I don't read all of them perfectly-- and quite of few of the free models out there are of dubious quality-- but it shouldn't crash.

Roy,  here is the zipped model link I tried.  Its a bunch of books.

Aqui esta mi version de este archivo. Lo qeu hice fue insertarlo directo en NXT. automaticamente me crea una lista de materiales, lo que hice fue simplemente elegir un mapa para cada uno de los materiales y listo. tiempo aproximado 2 minutos. 
Could you paste the finished autocad file?
Akin, veo qeu no necesitaste el archivo. De todas maneras estoy a tus ordenes. Saludos.

This one seems to be working fine for me as well.  The material names contain some odd characters-- no doubt non-Unicode foreign language (Asian?).  That may be tripping up nXt on some versions.  I attached a few maps and left some out.  Try the latest build.

 

Could you paste the finished autocad file?
I already deleted it.  It takes about two minutes to do what I just did.

This is what I got. Roy did you do something to Add mesh object widget? This is he first time am able to Explode an object inserted with it.

 

Wonderful I must say.

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
