AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hi, I've just installed ACA2018 with NXT 0358 QK09 on Win10. It runs fine but no material will be rendered. No difference between new files or existing with xrefs. Idea?

Was nXt working for you before you installed the latest download?

the latest running Version was ACA2013 with 0358 PH24 on Win7. But on different Hardware.

The computer now is a new one

I installed a version of AutoCAD Architecture 2018 here, and was able to render AccuRender materials on Walls and other objects OK with the  QK09 vrsio of nXt.

Do you have a small model that you can send me for testing? Something where you have applied materials that are not rendering?

When I render that model with the latest version on nXtRender, I get this rendering:

When I render with the Acad render command I get:

Is that similar to the results that you are seeing?

This is the result I'm seeing.

NXT:

AutoCAD:

The rendering looks like perhaps the latest version didn't really get installed.

Could you check the RPS license dialog to make sure that the latest version was actually installed. It should show QK09 here

Also could you check the dates on the these AccuRender modules files in the folder:

C:\Program Files\AccuRender nXt

I am assuming that this is a 64 bit version that you are running.

They should all be from June 23, 2017.

Thanks.

Hi again, my problem was not solved before. Meanwhile I worked without Xrefs and there was no time to try out other solutions.

Now I have to work again with Xrefs and there is the same Problem in the latest version.

I checked the license and it shows me "RC06" and a valid license. Renderings without xrefs or with autocadrender are fine. Renderings with xrefs are fine in autocadrender but not in nxt.

visretain is set "0"

best regards Hauke

I get a material and a color to show up.

Make sure Use Materials and Use Colors is checked:

... both are checked. Object Color was shown but no material.

I am not sure how to proceed.

Perhaps send me a new model and xref to try here, to see if I can duplicate this.

"Not yet.  It's not quite like that-- where you can offload certain portions.  It's more like an all or nothing proposition."

"Thank you Roy. The more physical based effects nXt has, the more realistic pictures it will compute. All of those need a lot of computing power under (or on top of) our desks though. Are you doing any move to engage GPUs on rendering process in nXt?…"
