AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Has anyone got any ideas why a particular obj file might disappear when I try to turn it into an AutoCAD mesh?

Hi Peter.  I don't have an answer to your question, but I have, in the past, had good and bad experiences with OBJ's  and AutoCAD.  Usually if the files originate from Europe, I hold my breath.  No help I'm afraid.

I had two files from the same source. The only difference was that one was much bigger than the other with a much finer mesh. This was the one that didn't work. Anyway, I got them to send it to me as an iges file which I then translated into a sat file and imported into AutoCAD.

You can send me the file, if you like.  I'd estimate we're only reading about 75% of them reliably-- there are many poorly formed ones out there and I'm not supporting the entire standard in any case.  It isn't an area I've worked on a lot-- I did make some improvements for nXtStudio and I may be able to leverage some of that code.

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"Sorry-- just got back into town last night.  Infinite objects aren't supported in ArStudio-- so yes-- the ground plane has to be represented by a finite object, in this case a rectangle.  You don't have to use mine, you can use…"

AR Studio ground plane

The ground plane in Accurender Studio appears as a rectangular surface under the object rather than extending to the horizon.See More
