AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

With Layer Material Schemes you can save sets of material assignments for your model, and then quickly reload them into the same model or other models.

Daniel has created a video to show you how to use it.

You can read more about it here: Layer Material Schemes

can someone help

I believe we have fixed this.

Please try downloading and installing the latest version of nXtRender that we recently posted on our downloads page.

The new install now includes the files that were reported missing in your error message, and the Layer Schemes is working again in AutoCAD 2018.

Thanks,

Hi Rich

Just downloaded the latest version of nXtRender this morning, installed the software (overriding the previous version) and ran the nXt command.  I loaded the nXtRender_loadR18_x64.arx program and received the following report:


Command:
Command: _appload
nxtrender_load_r18_x64.arx is incompatible with this version of AutoCAD.

Any thoughts?

Sorry for the confusion. That file named "nxtrender_load_r18_x64.arx" was intended for a different application. I'll make sure it is not in the install for the next version that we post.

You should be able to load the module named AccuRender nXt_22_64.arx for AutoCAD 2018, if you are on a 64 bit computer.

To manually load nXt the first time you run it in a particular version of AutoCAD. Use the following procedure:

  1. Type _apploadat the command line.
  2. Navigate to the folder where nXt was installed. This is normally C:\Program Files\AccuRender nXt
  3. Select one of the following files depending on your platform:

 

  • AccuRender nXt.arx-OR- AccuRender nXt64.arx (AutoCAD 2007 – 2009)
  • AccuRender nXt_18_.arx-OR- AccuRender nXt_18_64.arx (AutoCAD 2010 – 2012)
  • AccuRender nXt_19_.arx-OR- AccuRender nXt_19_64.arx (AutoCAD 2013 – 2014)
  • AccuRender nXt_20_.arx-OR- AccuRender nXt_20_64.arx (AutoCAD 2015- 2016)
  • AccuRender nXt_21_.arx -OR- AccuRender nXt_21_64.arx(AutoCAD 2017)
  • AccuRender nXt_22_.arx -OR- AccuRender nXt_22_64.arx(AutoCAD 2018)
  • AccuRender nXt_23_.arx -OR- AccuRender nXt_23_64.arx(AutoCAD 2019)

 

 

  1. Press Load

 

 

Still being a pain in the dupa.  As follows:

Command: _appload AccuRender nXt_22_64.arx successfully loaded.

Command: NXT

nxt loaded

Command: _appload
nxtrender_load_r18_x64.arx is incompatible with this version of AutoCAD.

AutoCAD file version 28.0.161.0

Product version r22.0.161.0

I have a version if CadWorx 2018 installed.  Can there be a conflict?

No, it shouldn't be a conflict with CadWorx 2018.

Sorry, I had thought that you were getting that error when using APPLOAD yourself.

So nxt is loaded OK, but you get this error when trying to use the Layer Schemes routine, right?

Are you just clicking on this button to load the Layer Material Schemes dialog?yer Schemes dialog?

Yes.

And the error appears as soon as you click that button?

New answer, I am now. Gosh, when a person does it right things work.

Thanks for your time Rich.

Sounds like it's working now then.

Let me know if you run into anything else.

just downloaded "arnxt64_0318b" from web site

installed but problem still exist

please send link for new file

unable to find link for new and old files

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
