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!


+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 ".

"Another good rendering. Those two photoshopped reading lights are not looking good though. They don't follow the perspective, the left one is higher than the right one. Also, they are supposed to be turned on (judging from the light on wall…"

"Great image as always. I would just blur the tree shadow on the lawn to match soft shadows on the building. Nice blending of cut-out greenery. Excellent job."

"Very nice rendering Chris! The only thing that distracts me is the fruit bowl. It's too evidently pasted in PS.  Another thing (nothing to do with rendering) is the microwave above the stove. I would rather expect a cooker hood there."

trim and extension command

On AutoCad 2021.The trim and extension command works funny. I initiate the command then click the cutting edge (press entre) then click the lines I need to trim or extend.Now I initiate the command and as soon as I click the object selected trims or extend.  How can I correct this, it is really affecting my work?See More
