AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am building a new Rendering Machine to work with Autocad and NXT. 

Biggest question is OS. How does NXT work on windows 10 pro?? Do i stick with windows 7?

Here is the build so far: Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Case: Cougar MG100 minitower

Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Extreme4

CPU: Intel Core i5 7600 3.5GHz to 4.10GHz

RAM: 16GB DDR4

HD: MZ-75E1T0E Samsung EVO 850 1TB VNAND

Video: Radeon Pro WX5100, 8GB GDDR5, 4 Display Port out

DVD: ASUS 24X DVDR/RW

Windows: 7 PRO 64bit

Dump Radeon and get some serious video card like NVidia (GTX 1070 or 1080).

Did you examine the new AMD Ryzen CPUs? Look quite powerful.

Windows 10 pro is OK, not having any problems so far, with any software, even an older ones.

If you have software that you may or may not "own", 10 will not let it run.  if it cannot authenticate it, its dead. 

Still running 8.1 at home (and love it!)

What do you mean Kevin? 10 turned into software piracy police now? Didn't know that... :)

I had 10 installed for about 30 minutes before I noticed that a couple of my programs weren't loading. Then got a pop-up telling me why.  Reverted back to 8.1 and have been happy ever since.

Telling about not being compatible with the new OS or not being properly licensed? Between those two alternatives are abyssal difference I think. Never got this kind of message (about not being licensed OK) after the upgrade form WIN7 64bit to WIN10 64bit on any of my (3) computers. Should I start to feel lucky? ;)

All softwares work if installed on wins 8 and ungrade to 10. Like Kevin said, some will not install directly on Wins 10. Iobit start menu 8 is one and Corel X3 is another.

Kevin you probably mean the Windows 10 smartscreen function. I think it can be disabled anyway.

"George, this is the path tracer engine. Do you have another recommendation? I am still figuring out materials. I will note that for future renders."

"Is this done with hybrid render engine or the basic one?Comment not about rendering: Stone material is visibly repeating and I thing also out of scale (too big). Looks more like wallpaper, as there are windows and the wall is too thin to be made of…"

"Hmmm... I'll take a look at this in nXt for AutoCAD when I get a chance.. it should work. I doubt if the specular maps will work-- I don't think the textured meshes use standard materials.  You are reminding me of why I need to…"

"Peter, I was able to ad all specular and bump maps in Blender right, but for some reason nXt isn't recognizing it at all. The only texture it passes through is the main diffuse map.I am thinking of modifying the basic material (with only…"
