AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Render settings to show corner of walls or wall edge Please !!!

Hi

I haven't used nxt for a while, now I find myself having to do elevational shadows for council. The only problem I have is I do not know how to adjust my setting to be able to show corner of walls . I have attached an example, where I have the correct sun settings and I have done a render run, but I am missing something as the corner of the wall is not defined or showing. Can someone please help me with this asap, Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards

The particular sun angles you're using are illuminating both faces pretty equally-- I understand that this is a requirement you can't change.

I would use some skylight-- it will still show the sun shadows clearly but will differentiate surfaces a little better.

Hi Roy, appreciate your reply, do you have some inages or an example of how to use these skylights ? is it located in the lighting ? sorry mate, but if you have a diagram or a visual , it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Roy is referring to the settings under lighting (see below).

It also might be worth adding some cloudiness to soften the shadows a bit.

Thanks Peter , Ill give it a go.

Cheers

"Send a sample drawing with the groundcover if possible-- it may be a scale issue."

"That's what I did too. I installed the older version of AccuRender that you're running, but it works fine for me. Wen you have a chance, could you let it run for maybe a half hour and see if it ever returns?"

"Yes it does exist. I am using nxt to add groundcover and browsing for the file. It stops when loading file."
