advanced rendering for AutoCAD
This is the first preview of the new nXtRender Batch.
You should only try this if you are adventuresome, and willing to make your way through some undocumented stuff. and not get mad at Rich and I if some things are not working properly.
If you want to try this, you can download it from here:
And just install it.
This is Beta Test Add-on to nXt and AutoCAD at this point. Later it will be integrated into the nXt install. It should work with most recent versions of nXt. And it should work for AutoCAD 2010-2014 (We haven't tested every possible combination yet)
After downloading, you will get a .ZIP file with a message like this:
After installation, a new Ribbon should appear in AutoCAD
The ? loads an about box:
The green button will extract your current model and save it to the disk for use with the Batch Rendering process.
After Extract, the Batch Renderer will load as a separate process with this dialog:
And then start rendering.
I will add more documentation here later, but for now you may need to just try some things out.
Had situations like this before too.
Is there any chance you could post or send me the model so that I could track it down?
Which do you want the AutoCAd file or the Batch render one? Why do I send it?
Send the AutoCAD DWG. Rich suspects that the materials were not embedded, and that he has the paths wrong to read the original materials. - or some other similar problems.
If the problem is this, or something else we can fix it better if we can start with a model. Our email will support up to 20MB files, so just send it email@example.com
Has anything being done to have this work earlier versions of AutoCad?
So far just 2010-2013.
What version are you looking for?
See this thread:
It explains what arx to load if you are running in a version of AutoCAD that doesn't have Ribbons.
