AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I'm not getting something here..........

I am trying to render a pylon shaped object in a shiny metal like stainless steel or chrome and not getting the shine and liquid glossy look.

If I model a sphere and apply a material (AccuRender_nxt_Chrome) it looks like it should.

The same material applied to the pylon renders flat gray.

I am understanding the object needs an hdri to give reflections.

I am using default hdri sky and studio lighting. (nothing else)

What am I missing here?

Aqui mando un ejemplo para obtener el material

Gracias por un ejemplo de su trabajo hermoso. ¿Cómo me aplico a mi pilón?
Thank you for an example of your beautiful work.
How do I apply to my pylon?

I don't think I am have a problem with materials.

 

I would like to render a single object (the pylon) with a shiny glossy metal material similer to chrome or polished stainless steel.

 

This would appear to be a simple task.

Apparenty not in Accurender.

"You were right, Roy. It was about the file name - ash on my head. ARStudio seems to be very ok for my humble interiors' purposes. One minor point (see attached) - meters or millimeters only, what about centimeters? I need to scale all my…"

"Looks like there's no file name.  Try saving the drawing to a file first, then run ArStudio.  This is a bug, obviously.  Thanks."
