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.

Groundcover Issues

Hello,I am hoping to get some clarity on how to modify and add groundcover. I have searched everywhere on the forum and online to find how to save a plant as .ArGroundcover, but I cannot find anything. I am using AccuRender Plant Editor and once I finish editing the plant that I want to use as a groundcover, I click "save plant as", but all it allows me to save as is .ArTree. I have a deadline to get this render finished, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out. See More
