AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

From a client:

I have downloaded and installed the trial nXtRender on a trial version of Autocad 2014 Architecture. I am looking at upgrading from ADT 2004 and Accurender 4.

I can’t get the materials assigned to the building elements (walls, roof, doors, etc.) using the drag and drop or by layer methods. The program gives me a click as if the material was assigned, but, it does not appear in the wireframe or shaded views and does not render when I click the render button.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

I see that he is using AutoCAD 2014

See here for assigning materials to ACA components.  The section is at the bottom of the page.  Drag and drop will not work for this.

"okay, but why should one try to draw each separate light source? As you mentioned before, most of the time these are behind a diffuse cover. "

"It works pretty well for this-- where the surfaces are diffuse.  Peter's got a more reflective surface which probably would show reflections of the individual light sources in the roll.  It's an interesting problem (and an actual…"

"Yep-- these sometimes do exhibit discreet reflections.  Does the hybrid engine do any better with these? "
