AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

hola necesitaria trabajar mas rapido , tengo una maquina

amd x6  2.8 con 4 gb , mi pregunta es:

1: como tendria que hacer para poner 2 o 3 maquinas trabajando en red

2 : cual es es costo

3 : si en todas las maquinas tienen que estar instaladas las bliblotecas de texturas o solo en la principal,

4 : cual es  la mejor recomendacion de equipo y que  cantidad de memoria para la o las maquinas

5 : si la velocidad se directamente proporcional a la cantidad de equipos ...osea 2 equipos = mitad de tiempo

6 : si es como pienso ya que la traduccion no es del todo fiel , que una misma imagen la procesan varios equipos a la vez

7 : si es asi que pasa si algunas de las maquina se cuelga, si las otras siguen prosesando normalmente esa misma imagen

pd espero poder entendernos

There isn't a definitive answer to most of these-- you'll need to experiment.  You get a two-node farm for free, so you can try with that.  For more, you'll need to purchase a render farm license (I don't remember how much it is-- but not very much.)  In general, if you mix fast and slow machines on the network you won't get very good results.  The rule of thumb for performance (# of cores X clock speed) still holds-- but the farm does depend (also) on the speed of your network and how much data you're sending around.  You shouldn't need to have materials or other libraries installed on the nodes-- the package it sends around for rendering should be completely self-contained.

The render farm generally works pretty well-- although I might suggest waiting for my next update (this weekend?) since I haven't updated the farm in a while.  The results should be consistent.  The farm should be pretty robust if machines are crashing, although that shouldn't be happening anyway.

"Yes, Roy, the units were correctly set but the model was very far from the origin (forgot about that issue).  Looks fine now.  Thanks very much for your prompt reply."

Distortions in nXt renderd AutCAD Architecture Curved Walls

Please see the attached images.  In AutoCAD Architecture's native renderer, and in its 3d display, the curved walls appear smooth.  In nXt the materials are uneven (with sometimes extra lines that protrude from the walls).  Distortions also appear in straight walls which should be flat and smooth though the problem is less pronounced.  I tried changing the material definitions but the problem persists.  Could this be some sort of scale definition issue?The problem persists with all the…See More

"I cannot duplicate this here either. Do you happen have the "Add-ons for nXtRender" package installed on your machine? That would cause all kinds of problems, since it included older versions of the nXt modules. Look…"
