AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Using nXt version 348...

When inserting legacy plants, they appear in plan (and 3d) very small, not showing the true limits of the plant size as were shown in AR4. See attached image...same plant.

Is there a way to overcome this? Maybe resolved in latest version?

Thanks for your help,

John

Rendering, side by side, showing they are same scale.

Looks like it's just missing a branch level when it's represented in AutoCAD under nXt-- probably by design to reduce the complexity of the AutoCAD blocks.   The trunks look identical.  No-- I don't think there's any facility in there to change this behavior.  

10-4...Thanks for the quick reply Roy.

May end up loading all (well...maybe not all, but at least some favorites) the legacy plants/trees using AR4 into a file for transfer into newer environments.

Actually, it's the nXt plants/trees that are affected by this more profoundly.

See attached image files....Just use old copied plants/trees?

Yep-- just checked-- it doesn't look like there's a setting for this.  I'm sure I did it to simplify the blocks inserted into AutoCAD.  It obviously doesn't work very well for some plants.

Will make do...copying insertions of plants from older projects.

Thanks again Roy,

John

"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."

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"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."
