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.

Thanks.

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

"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…"

"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."
