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

Downloads and Trials
You can download the latest version from: http://nxtrender.com/download/
We put a 0337-NI12 version on the downloads page - which has the new UI features, but with an older Core Engine. There was a bug in the 343 Core Engine, so we pulled it and went back to 337 until we can get it fixed.
All XA licenses are valid until at least the end of the year.
I would be greate to create a plant (tree) with two (or more...) leaf types, I mean different png or jpg bitmap files, so the tree look more realistic as the 1st plan object...
Any chance for that in the future? :-)
Post that over on the wishlist thread:
I posted a new version, 0337-NI12, on the download page, that has these new UI features, but was built with the 0337 toolkit.
I tested it with 5 versions of AutoCAD, on both my 32 and 64 bit machines and it all seems to be working here. I was able to render the model that was sent to me which was crashing in the version that we posted with the 0343 toolkit, and the Layer Schemes dialog opens fine for me in all of the AutoCAD versions I tested from 2010 through 2015.
Please try this version if you had a problem with the previous version posted.
Habe soeben die neue Version 0337-NI12 herunter geladen.
Werde die jetzige Version komplett entferen, Rechner neustarten und dann installieren.
Werde berichten, ob das alles ohne Probleme läuft, oder ob Autocad crashed.
Habe die neue Version 0337-NI12 64 Bit istalliert und einige Stunden getestet.
Ergebnis ist leider negativ.
Der Rechner mit Acad 2011 und 32 GB Arbeitsspeicher ist zwar nicht abgestürzt aber eingefroren.
Acad hat immer 4 Bilder gerechnet und ist beim 5. Bild eingefroren. Selbst der Taskmanager und auch die Maus geben dann kein Lebenszeichen mehr von sich.
Ob es jetzt an meinem Rechner oder an Accurender 0337-NI12 liegt, weiss ich nicht.
Ich werde jetzt wieder die alte Version 337 installieren.
Warum passiert das?? Why????
Renders fine here no issues.
With the Layer Schemes I get, '
c:\program files\accurender nxt\rps_bin\rps_nxtrender_r20_x64.arx cannot find a dll or other file that it needs.
AcRxDynamicLinker failed to load 'c:\program files\accurender nxt\rps_bin\rps_nxtrender_r20_x64.arx'
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2015\acad.exe_.RPS_AC_LAYER_MATERIALS
Unknown command "RPS_AC_LAYER_MATERIALS". Press F1 for help.'
Tried apploading the, ' rps_nxtrender_r20_x64.arx ' and it say unable to load
All this on Wins 8 (64 bits) AutoCad 2015.
Will give it a shot on AutoCad 2014 now.
Does rps_nxtrender_r19_x64.arx load for you if you open
when I do that, I can open Layer Material Schemes - window !
Yes it does.
