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).

"Thanks Rich. I also popped-in my license code to the checker, it came up with nXtFarm64_0355.exe Seems to be the render farm though?"

Old versions of nXt for AutoCAD

Is it still possible to download old versions (bought in 2013), of nXt for AutoCAD? Got a new PC, but cannot find my installation file. Thanks.See More

"Almost certainly.  A fix may be difficult at this point.  The code has not been touched in years."

Reflected background brightness

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?See More

Accurender für Bricscad

Es gab vor einiger Zeit mal eine Version Accurender nxt für Bricscad.Wird es das in Zukunft wieder geben z.B. für Bricscad 19 oder 20??Wäre super, denn dann könnte ich meine 3D Modelle die ich mit Accurender rendere auch mit Bricscad rendern.See More
