AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

So apparently my update rights expired about a week ago. Unfortunately I found this out by downloading & installing the latest version today. How do I roll this back to the previous version so I don't have the note telling me to re-new and the trail size render image?

Thanks

That did get me updated to the most current version I can use, Thank you.

Unfortunately it did not address the issue I was trying to resolve by updating. ACA objects maintain the default gray material even after being reassigned. I have tried removing ad reassigning all materials this did not work. At this point I am thinking this is a setting that is messed up. Any ideas?

Can you send me that model and let me try it here?

shoot me th e email address

It looked like the materials Horizontal Siding was being used for some of the walls.

I edited that material and saw that it was based on a texture image where the strength was set to 1.0, so the material would simply be the color of the texture image.

I set that strength to 0.15, so that the color would mostly be used, instead of the texture image, and changed the color to green.

Then when I render the model, the walls are green:

Try that.

"Also, when I reduce the strength of the decal, instead of becoming transparent, it becomes grey. How would I set it to show some base material coming through?"

"Adding the decal from fresh using ARDECAL worked, even with my version. Next question: how do I add more than one decal to an object?"
