Just a quick question:

Will the latest version of nXt still work with older versions of AutoCAD?

We still compile the latest version to work with older versions of AutoCAD, back to AutoCAD 2009 2007 (edited), but we can only test it with version back to AutoCAD 2015.

Still works with 2007 on my systems

Akinlolu -

 You seem to be missing Autodesk's proposition that constant upgrading is good for you

(and good for Autodesk).  The more you upgrade, the better you feel.  Maybe that why I've not been feeling so great these last four years.  :)

All works fine in AutoCAD 2018 except for shaded view in walkabout.

It works as normal in AutoCAD 2011

Seems to work for me here. can you send me a model that I can try to duplicate what you are seeing?

It's a standard room drawing template that I've been using for years, so I know it's not a problem with the model.


Thanks, I just wanted a drawing where I could see this happening.

I see now that you were just referring to the WalkAbout problem with wireframe in the new versions of AutoCAD that had already been discussed on the forum. I thought perhaps this was something new.


Sorry Rich. I didn't realize it had already been discussed.

Image does not render correctly in nxt but does in autocad render

HI GuysThe pipework is generated using an external package. The majority of the pipework renders in nxt, but there are a few pipe spools that disappear. I have had a look at their properties and they appear to be the same. However the pipes do render using the AutoCAD standard render. Your help would be greatly appreciatedKind regardsDavidSee More

"Putting Area lights behind external windows help the overhall ambiance. Also rendering with no furniture first makes rendering go faster so when ok with the lighting then you can added the furnitures for the final rendering"

"You can experiment with this setting if you want- sometimes 99% works  fine and slightly improves performance.  Or you can leave it alone-- these heat shutdowns are not really very good for a computer."

"Abracadabra; adjusting 'Maximum Processor State' (in 'Processor Power Management') -so it does not exceed 95% of its capabilities seems to be doing the trick - as Roy pointed out. Thanks! Will try new thermal compound anyway -…"

"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"
