AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I don't know why but render farm hasn't been working for me for the last few updates. I haven't changed anything on my network, just added the new versions of nxt. I keep getting this windows error that tells me “nXt64.exe has stopped working”, “do I want to debug or close program”. It comes up that way on both machines. Both paths are to a shared directory on our server. Deleted the old paths because I thought there was something running in the back ground. Tried to reinstall render farm, still get the same errors. It looks like it starts up fine and looks like it is running in the Render Farm Monitor (0 of 4 tasks completed) and status are both Active, but nothing ever happens.

 

Please help!

It's unlikely that updating nXt has made a difference.  Try a very simple model first to see if it completes.

do both machines need nxt installed or just the one that starts the farm?

Only the one which generates the files for the farm-- i.e. the machine with your AutoCAD drawing and nXt.  You can launch the farm using the nXtFarmMonitor from any machine as well.

It use to work great, now it is not. I will try a smaller model like you said. Anything else i should be looking into? Windows Temp Files, network settings, AV running? It looks like starts and then the error message...

Not yet.  First make sure this isn't model specific.  Start with a simple model and no materials.

"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."

Here's the latest version of the new stuff.  If you're interested, try it at your leisure and let me know what you find.  It's a work in progress, so please be kind.  We'll likely have some bugs and certainly have some missing features.******Some highlights:Standalone renderer which accepts input from Rhino, Sketchup, Obj and FBX.Plugins for AutoCAD and other CAD applications.Online material and plant…See More
