AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hi guys,  I am actually using a  NVIDIA  GFORCE GT 520  video card and I want to buy a new video card to work witha Autocad and Nxt.  I am running Windows 7 64 bits.  I have an I7 with 32 GB. I d´ont want the best video card in the market but something suitable to work with Nxt.

With the actual video card sometimes I lost the visibility of some objects, or have big distorsions. Sometimes I have to restar the computer to see the objects again.

If the video card helps in render time much better.

Thanks in advance.

Merry  christmas and a happy new year with tons of work for all the Nxt community.

Best wishes.

Alejandro

Thanks for wishes Alex, the same and much more to you! :)

Graphics cards do not speed up rendering process of NXT. They speed up 3d view manipulation though, like NXT walk about window or shaded view of model in AutoCAD or Sketchup. There are few rendering programs which use GPU for rendering, nxt is CPU based renderer.

I am looking for new card too, currently am interested in GTX 760 one. Its price/performance ratio is really good and it supports some of the CUDA supporting applications I use. For games I think AMD Radeon cards are better choice though ;)

Thanks George, I will take  a look to  the GTX 760.

"I think that for that type is better to use displacement map. Displacement actually modifies the geometry rather then just fake the relief."

Bump map for material

I want to create multiple materials with different bump maps, so that they can be assigned to the objects in AutoCAD for rendering. Please see the attachment for an idea. The idea is to assign the appropriate one to the object for rendering.If this can be achieved, it will avoid a whole lot of symbol creation, since right now to get the design etching, we are creating individual symbols for each design. Obviously this is very time consuming and results in literally thousands of DWG files, one…See More
