AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD


See attached file - a car, imported from the web, created from 3d faces.

Unfortunately, there is absolutely no smoothness there. 

Any idea how to make it soft and nice? I mean just the body, tires & glass layers

Otherwise, the car looks pretty from far, but, unfortunately, far from pretty if one come closer... :)

As I am an architect, I belive in right angles and stright lines. Therefore I do not work a lot with stuff like nurbs or surfaces, so any help appreciated...  :)

This is rather AutoCAD issue, but maybe you will find a solution which could be good for us, nXt-renderers..

Convert to AutoCad 2007 or 2012 and I can help, meanwhile try this.

Akinlolu, file attached.

BTW - which of those parameters should be increased or decreased?

Thanks in advance.

Use the values in the above image.

grass attached.



oops, here comes the car... Forgot. Sorry.

car attached.


Drawing keeps crashing as soon as I load nxt. There seems to be an offending layer or material attached to the car.

try again.. new file attached.


Try that Maciej, 5 minutes of sewing it up. :)


George - thank you very much! How did you achieve such an awesome effect??

Looks gorgeous, indeed.. 

What do you mean Maciej, which effect exactly? The only thing I did was to use Tailors add-on routine ( for sewing 3d faces into polyface mesh. I think nXt is smoothing this type of 3D entities automatically so I just hit the Render button then and voilà...  Furthermore, another nice car model (EVO 7, war machine that sucks kids and kites, as Jeremy Clarkson stated once :D) was added to my personal collection, with your kind permission, of course ;) Thank you in advance.

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More
