AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I have a bunch of plants (cacti) i need to import from AR4. I can import the plant itself but i can't figure out how to point the AR4 plant to the right material or map. I can not figured out how the old paths worked for plants. I read the other post similar to this but "tricky" processes isn’t an any help.

Where are the plant materials actually stored in AR4?

I have ar4 installed on an winxp machine, but nXt is installed on my win7 machine. They have a shared network drive that i want to point all my materials to. My first thought is to edit the plants in Ar4 and point all the materials and maps to a library on the server, and then make sure that same directory is pointed to in nXt...

Any suggestions? Any place to get good cacti and saguaro?

LOL, don't take this the wrong way, but that is not really a saguaro. Here are blocks I ended up using.

Looks like it turned invisible :D

OK, my dwg cacti didn't upload (big file) so here is the rendering with them... there are a few photshop ones in the front but for the most part, they are all models. Thanks for your help all. I love the accurender users. They understand deadlines and post help right away!

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"Sorry-- just got back into town last night.  Infinite objects aren't supported in ArStudio-- so yes-- the ground plane has to be represented by a finite object, in this case a rectangle.  You don't have to use mine, you can use…"

AR Studio ground plane

The ground plane in Accurender Studio appears as a rectangular surface under the object rather than extending to the horizon.See More
