AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I've been playing with the plant editor: it is a really powerfull tool to create professional and light (in terms of Mb) plants for our models, but I think it needs some more improvements to compete with others in the market. There's no reference to scale (human scale or whatever), no idea if you're creating a 60 m tall tree or 60 cm tall shrub. As far as I could see, there's no way of creating branches towards the centre of the plant when you have more than 1 trunk. It might really compete with acclaimed other stuff if it could also export into other formats (3ds, obj, skp...).

Can you add the option of imperial units (feet and inches) for plant editor

About plant generator. Would it be possible to use non flat faces, for the leaves? Curved faces would be more realistic. A little modification, but a great improvement!

Thanks.

+1 on that.

Another great improvement could be the use of more than just one leave types on single plant. Two or three types differentiated according to the age of leaves could add great degree of realism.

I agree with you all. And besides the leaves with other shapes, the same could be applied to flowers. Different kind of shapes and amounts, as it was in AR4, which give options like "planar", "cup", "sphere" or "cone ".

"The drawings are likely scaling correctly-- don't scale the geometry please. These are only display units for the arstudio interface."

"You were right, Roy. It was about the file name - ash on my head. ARStudio seems to be very ok for my humble interiors' purposes. One minor point (see attached) - meters or millimeters only, what about centimeters? I need to scale all my…"

"Looks like there's no file name.  Try saving the drawing to a file first, then run ArStudio.  This is a bug, obviously.  Thanks."
