AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

We have decided to start on some reference manuals - both printed and eBook, and we have the first one ready for use.

You can purchase this from Amazon for just $4.99, even better, you can download a sample to see if it would be of value to you.

Rendering with AutoCAD (using nXtRender)

Most of the book is available in one form or another on our websites and forum, but the Kindle version makes it easier to use - to find stuff by searching, etc. Take a look, and if you have any ideas for improvements, put them here on the Forum.

The Print version will be available in a few days - for people, (like me), who find a printed reference manual much easier to use.

I downloaded this to my iPad and it is a nice addition to have next to my computer. Well done Al!

Thanks Daniel,

I noticed that external links to the documentation pages not included in the manual load directly into the Kindle App, and also your videos - which are referenced on several pages - they show directly from the Kindle App. It is a little tricky to find the Done/Back button when you want to return to the manual.

Ditto for internal links within the manual - it will jump to the new page - there is a back button to return to the article you were reading, but it is tricky to find it.

Purchased a new subscription to Autodesk. When I logged into Autodesk, it automatically upgraded my version I was using and installed 2021 version. Now my AccuRender NXT does not work nor will it load on 2021 version.I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get support but I am not receiving anything.I have paid and downloaded the latest version of NXT but it's not working nor is the support working. Having been an NXT CUSTOMER for many years, I am extremely disappointed in the support.Not sure…See More

"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…"
