AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am a new user of nXT, have used Accurender for years (AR4).  Trying to render some poles that are made up of 3D faces, it renders fine in old AR4/Acad2004, but with nXT and Acad 2019 (or 2018) I am getting a very sketchy or corrugated render, without any materials applied.

Is there a setting I'm missing in ACAD or nXT?

I tried redrawing pole as a 3D primitive with 3D faces or solid and get the same result.

I want the pole to be faceted (8 sided) not smooth and round.

Attached is Acad file and render jpg.

The ACAD render command is giving a similar result so I'm thinking it may be an ACAD setting.

Suspecting that the coordinates of the objects were way off in space, I used the MOVE command to move the objects to (0,0,0).

That cleaned up the rendering in both Acad and nXt.

Try that.

Interesting....that works, thanks. we may have to set up a different coord system then. We are using data with StatePlane coords from engineering and GIS files.  Interesting that AR4 works fine with the same file (saved down to Acad2004).

"Hi Chris, The modelling, lighting and rendering are very good on these three images. However, I feel they are let down slightly by the "Photoshopped" plants, cars and people. I think it's mainly to do with the shadow direction and…"

"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?…"

"Most are using nVidia's stuff for denoising-- it's pretty impressive. They are reflective caustics which you get automatically in the new engine-- yes, I think they come from sunlight striking the chair bases.  They should be pretty…"

"Nice! Many path renderers are introducing denoising features with good results. I have a question on those images Roy: the bright elliptical spots on the wall between the two windows are reflection caustics from highly reflective surface on the…"

"I've been experimenting with nVidia's denoiser (requires one of their GPUs) in the new Image Editor.  Very promising-- here's regular and denoised.  Click on each image to see it full size:"
