AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Roy, All...

Upgraded to new computer and software...Win 10, ACAD Architect 2017, nXt 1.0.358...

Working on new rendering/dwg file, starting with one done last year. Previously working imported 3DS objects (people) are weirding out...putting materials in the wrong locations (see attached.)

Thought I'd start from scratch...new file. ACAD...nXT...add textured mesh object...select...select location...pick...crash (see attached for ACAD error message).

Next...copied the previously used 3DS people to a new ACAD drawing...materials in wrong locations (see attached dwg and image).

TLDR - New hardware and software...textured meshes used to work and now don't.

Ideas?

Thanks,

John

I'll see if I can track these problems down.

Thanks Rich...Let us know.

I posted a new version where Importing 3DS files is working again, and your sampel drawing People.dwg is rendering correctly in the latest versions of AutoCAD.

I tested this in in AutoCAD versions 2015 through 2018, 64 and 32 bit.

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type.  The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore.  You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar.  Use the Type popdown on the…"

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes.  In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
