AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Looks like the randomize command for plants is shrinking them all.

Screen capture of tree blocks in elevation


As you can see above, randomizing with scale shrunk the trees by about half. But not visibly for the block, all the others show fine.

Then I randomized the third column only by seed, no scale.

As rendered below:

As you can see, they shrunk as well without scale having a value.

Then I decided to randomize them all without scale, even the ones that were already randomized to see the effect.

Interesting, the blocks shrunk only on the 2 right columns.

Now the 2 left columns shrunk on the rendering and not the blocks, while the 2 right columns now display correctly after randomizing twice, but now being half the size I want them.

Any way to fix this?

Weird.  I can't reproduce it here yet.  Everything seems to be working.  With a scale factor of 1.5 both blocks and renderings show some trees larger and some smaller.  Check the insertion scale in the drawing just for grins.  If you can't figure it out, send me the drawing using the upload link above.

Maybe it is just the specific tree I am using. Try it with the Morris Tree, W Pine 21.

Which tree lib?

Morris's Plant Library.


I assume it is Gerry Morris. They are .ArPlants created in 2011.

Am I the only one who has this library?

I don't have it.  Send a drawing or lib and I'll take a look.

Here you go.

Rename the file back to .zip


Thanks-- got it reproduced.  It may take a little while until I publish a fix, but I am working on trees right now anyway.

"Those are all exceptional work, Peter! Congratulations!On this one only: bricks look big to me, but maybe I am wrong. Also some areas in shadow look still a bit noisy."

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."
