AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

This is a new content library we have been working on for blocks with predefined lighting settings and material settings.

Note: This is in "Beta Test". We want o hear your feedback, and also get you advice or submissions for some Render Ready content we can add to the on-line library.

The idea is to store content on the web, which can easily be loaded into AutoCAD and used for rendering as is - or you can make changes as desired.

For example, here are some ceiling lights we have uploaded:

Here are some ceiling lights:

Here are some other lights:

Rendering with nXtRender

After clicking Create/Place and rendering the model, here are the downloaded lights in action.

Download and Installation

You can download the nXtRender Add-ons from:

nXtRender Add-ons


After they are installed, they will appear on the Plugins Ribbon, or you can type in: RPS_AC_RENDER_READY

Notes

  • Some lights, such as the wall lights will require you to set the AutoCAD UCS to the desired wall for placement.
  • Currently, if you re-install nXtRender, you will need to re-install the nXtRender Add-ons as well.

Downloaded the new lighting addon (MH01xa) and installed the program.

Although the plugin window pops up, none of the commands are recognized when picked.

What am I not running to have nxt recognize the commands?

 

What platform and version of AutoCAD are you using?

Could you run APPLOAD and see if any of our RPS* modules are loaded?

Just downloaded the latest nXtRender program, re-loaded the lighting addon and ... there be whales.  Thing are looking good.  So we can create and save blocks in other folders for retrivel?

Installed but can't found the RPS modules that you show. Acad 2010 Acad 2014 64 bits

Bear with us, we'll get these things figured out.

But we need some help like this getting everything to work with all the various machines.

This what I get...

Any idea?

After downloading and installing, it will automatically load as a Plugin for AutoCAD 2013 or AutoCaD 2012 with SP2 installed.

Otherwise, for AutoCAD 2010 through 2012, you will need to load one of these ARX modules before the functions will work:

      nXtRender_load_R18.arx

      nXtRender_load_R18_x64.arx   (for 64 bit machines)

They can be loaded from a sub-folder named RPS_BIN wherever you have AccuRender nXt installed, usually:

      C:\Program Files\AccuRender nXt\RPS_BIN

Are you able to load the ARX  nXtRender_load_R18_x64.arx using APPLOAD?

If so, then you should be able to type in NXTB to load a dialog to choose the Addon functions.

does this install in the old nxt before jan2013 version?

No. This and all future improvements require a new version and a 2013 license.

Also, you should install the latest nXtRender as well before installing the add- on package
We tend to hear from people who cannot load this.

Has anyone gotten it to actually work?

Works fine here (Win 7 x64 - ACA2013/ACA2014 - nXt 329).

"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

"AccuRender Studio is a choice on the download menu above.  There are install links and some instructions.  I'll take a look and make sure everything is up to date."
