AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Alright, I'm asking the question that seems to be a problem with a lot of people.  I am trying to get my glass to look as realistic as this picture (attached).  I am not sure if there are better ways to set up my model, but basically what I do is start with a floor plan and extrude the "glass" layer to the height I need it.  So I end up having an 1" thick object.  I am also trying to get my rendering to be as realistic as this image.  Any other pointers out there for additional items?

My company just purchased the full RPC license, so I better be set there as far as plants, etc. goes.

Use the glass template material.  Change the IOR to 1.55.  

Give it accurate lighting to reflect (a well-calibrated HDRi or Automatic Sky, for example) and refract.

How do we know a well calibrated HDRi map?

A good/brief tutorial on the effect use of HDRi files in NXT would be highly welcomed too.

"No plans yet.  The new stuff is being designed to be much easier to port.  If I go that way, the first target will likely be Rhino for the Mac."
