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.

"Another good rendering. Those two photoshopped reading lights are not looking good though. They don't follow the perspective, the left one is higher than the right one. Also, they are supposed to be turned on (judging from the light on wall…"

"Great image as always. I would just blur the tree shadow on the lawn to match soft shadows on the building. Nice blending of cut-out greenery. Excellent job."

"Very nice rendering Chris! The only thing that distracts me is the fruit bowl. It's too evidently pasted in PS.  Another thing (nothing to do with rendering) is the microwave above the stove. I would rather expect a cooker hood there."

trim and extension command

On AutoCad 2021.The trim and extension command works funny. I initiate the command then click the cutting edge (press entre) then click the lines I need to trim or extend.Now I initiate the command and as soon as I click the object selected trims or extend.  How can I correct this, it is really affecting my work?See More
