AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello everyone,

I've inserted a satellite image into my 3d model and scaled it to fit properly in the orientation. When I render, the image is not there. Does anyone know an easy way to render with a satellite image to scale?

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Tom, did you apply the map as a decal to a 3d object first? 

I did, but it doesn't render the proper scale of the photo on the 3d object. If I insert the satellite image as a raster image reference and scale the image, it works perfectly to view the model overlay. But attaching the graphic to the exact size of the scaled image it doesn't keep the scale factor for some reason......... I guess I could always render the model and use photoshop to put the graphic underlay in. Just thought an easier method might be available.

The way you described should work just fine. I haven't had or heard of a problems like yours. If you would like to upload the image, I'll try it here on my end for you.

Do you try to make a material with your image and make a 3d face ground plane, scale the material same dim like your 3d face then apply.

"Thanks Roy. That did the trick. I just have to wrap my head round the logic behind it."

"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?"
