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.

"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."

"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…"

"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."
