AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hi, I'm new on nXt and trying out tge evaluation version. I have assigned materials to my layers but they don't show when I render. I am only ably to render using object colors. How can I render with assigned materials showing?

post a small model so we see what you are doing wrong and be able offer solutions

Try this for general layer material assignment issues.

If you are using AutoCAD Architecture and trying to assign materials to components such as window frames, the bottom of this page has an explanation of how to assign material to ACA components.

Let me know if either of these work for you.

Thanks a lot Roy. Very helpful. I changed the settings under Style manager (set surface rendering to 'bylayer') and it worked.

"Yeah-- like I mentioned the caustics are accurate but could be annoying.  Things that might alter it include changing the sun angle so it's not striking the chair's metal surfaces so directly, changing the roughness of the chair…"

"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…"
