AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Dear all,

please have a look at the attached jpg. Nxt material icons with no preview. This occured after re-installing Auto CAD and nXt. Any idea anyone?

Regards,
Maciej

I see that until I switch to Medium icons:

I am using windows 10 so the View selector is on the toolbar.

What is your File Explorer View set to?

Medium icons, I am affraid...

See attached jpg.

I followed Roy's instruction very carefuly: 

  • cd c:\Program files\AccuRender nxt
  • regsvr32 armatthumb64.dll,

But to na avail - it didn't work. The message "function succeded" appeared, an I still see the blank icons - for both materials and trees.

Any other idea?

To test all this, first I uninstalled the thumbnail program.

To do that, I just typed in (in an Administrator command window):

cd c:\Program files\AccuRender nxt

then I used the /u switch to uninstall, as below::

regsvr32 /u armatthumb64.dll

and it showed me that the uninstall was successful. And I verified that I no longer had the large thumbnails working in Explorer.

Then, to install the thunbnail provider again, I typed in: 

regsvr32 armatthumb64.dll

and it said that was successful.

But I still did not have the large thumbnails, even though I had closed and reopened the Explorer window (a couple of times).

So I rebooted. And after the reboot, the large thumbnails were working again!

So try rebooting.

Rich, Thank you, icons are back! It works.

I tried rebooting yesterday as well, to no avail, but the crucial issue was /u parameter I guess.

Great!

Thanks for the update.

Hopefully I can remember  or find this answer again, the next time this question surfaces.

"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)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"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."
