AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

We have released a new version of nXtRender for AutoCAD - version 0343-NI04

This release includes both some Core Engine changes and some User Interface changes.

Version Numbers

343 is the nXt engine version number like we have been using in the past. NI04 is the release date (N=2014, I=September 04=day of month). This longer version number lets us have several UI change releases per base engine release and still keep track of them.

Licensing and Renewals

Everyone who purchased or renewed nXtRender anytime in 2013 or 2014 will be able to use this, and all new releases in 2014 without having to renew their license. (Normally you need to renew you license after 12 months to use new versions).

People who have not upgraded to nXtRender from AccuRender nXt (AR5) will need to renew their license to use this version. See: Renewals

New Features

- A few core changes have been made since the last version, such as a fix where the Hybrid engine interior simulation direct sunlight soft shadows was not resolving properly.

- You can now drag and drop materials from File Explorer into the nXt Material Pallet

- Lighting Channel was added as a column for the Lights list.
- And you can now sort the Light list by clicking on any column header.

- You can now sort the Layer Material list by clicking on any column header.

Additional new Features

We are working on the list of requested features and changes in this post:

Nice! Great enhancements. I'm most happy about the material sort. Keep it up guys!

Thanks for the encouragement Garret.

We hope to keep making improvements based on user suggestions.

Once I click on the Layer scheme, AutoCad Crashes to Desktop. Lastest trial, on AutoCad 2014 and on AutoCad 2015 I get an AutoCad Error-abort screen before the crash. both 64 bits, Win 8.0.

I can duplicate this.

I'll fix it and post a new version.

"Once I click on the Layer scheme, AutoCad Crashes to Desktop"

Had you clicked on the word "Layer" or "Material" or on one of the icons at the top?

Or, precisely, here had you clicked?

Does it happen in a particular database, or even before you add anything to an empty database?

Clicking on the Layer Scheme Icon (list, brush and green sphere) brings up the crash, but works perfectly with AutoCad 2007 (32 bits) on Win 8 (64 bits)

Mit der Version Acad 2011 64 Bit läuft es super, aber bei Acad 2013 64 Bit crashed.

Why?????

Diese Fehlermeldung bekomme ich in Acad 2013 64 Bit wenn ich mit AR5 arbeite.

Die nxt Version ist 343 NI04.

Was mache ich da falsch, oder fehlen mir da bestimmte Updates?

Why?

tuve que desinstalar la version arnxt64_0343-NI04 e instalar la arnxt64_0337 ya que se colgaba el programa cuando empezaba a renderear 

To render with the latest  build, there is the need for you remove the previous material assignment and re-assign the materials again, only that once you close the drawing and open again the crash resumes again.

Could you try the latest version that we just posted, 0343-NI10, and see if it fixes the problem that you are seeing?

Thanks.

"Unfortunately, we don't have a version that works with BricsCAD now, and that older trial version cannot be reinstated."

"Another good rendering. Those two photoshopped reading lights are not looking good though. They don't follow the perspective, the left one is higher than the right one. Also, they are supposed to be turned on (judging from the light on wall…"

"Great image as always. I would just blur the tree shadow on the lawn to match soft shadows on the building. Nice blending of cut-out greenery. Excellent job."

Railroad kitchen

"Very nice rendering Chris! The only thing that distracts me is the fruit bowl. It's too evidently pasted in PS.  Another thing (nothing to do with rendering) is the microwave above the stove. I would rather expect a cooker hood there."

trim and extension command

On AutoCad 2021.The trim and extension command works funny. I initiate the command then click the cutting edge (press entre) then click the lines I need to trim or extend.Now I initiate the command and as soon as I click the object selected trims or extend.  How can I correct this, it is really affecting my work?See More
