One way to produce nice grass (or fur, or hair, or even fallen leaves or anything randomly and unevenly found in real world) - using particles or something (which is common place e.g. in Blender) - would be nice. But as far as I know AutoCAD does not support particles. I would say there may be workarounds for architectural stuff like this - things that people making Architectural renderings could need or like to have. Maybe some sort of "block spray" for "painting" surfaces with randomly scaled, oriented and rotated block of e.g. grass blades or leaves (from 2,3 or 4 alternative blocks for even more randomness). Nxt works quite well with model with high polygon numbers, so it wouldn't be a real problem to render scenes like that. I did some internet search and found lisp routine which can fill closed polyline with blocks.Unfortunately it works only with planar shapes, so it can't fill real surface. Gives some interesting results though and maybe of some different use. If you do a block of grass blades with applied material on it, you can gen something like this:

Model becomes really heavy and difficult to handle or navigate though. I think similar (and rather better) result can be achieved using nXt groundcover.

I agree with you George. NXT is a fantastic program. I however wish we had more support with entourage and ready objects and perhaps routine for making fur, hair, grass and such like we have with Max and vray. What do you think?

Really nice job George! Very effective representation!

Thanks Marc. Working on this project (rendering part) I have found nXt to be mature product, delivering quality I like and need, its speed is good (I am not doing animations and am not professional renderer as well - so speed is not really a problem for me). Of course all this must be considered in conjunction with the price. And there are not many programs today (if there are any at all) which can deliver all that nXt does in such price level. Happy nXt-ing to all :D

Nice Pictures George. I like the render when we see one side in the shadow and one in the sun. It's good with nXt plants. But when you have to put real plants in Pshop, it's more difficult cause you have to find plant with the same lighting, and in most of the case it don't correspond. This kind of exposition can give the most beautiful contrast, and subtility in the shadows areas, as we can see here.

"Check the scale of the model-- use the _DDUNITS command.  Make sure the insertion scale matches the actual units in your model. I'll check on the batch stuff when I get a chance-- working on something else right now."

NXT Settings - Was ist das? - what´s that?

Ich habe gerade die Testversion des neuesten Updates von 355.Wenn ich in meine Acad 2009 Lampen mit Licht einfüge und render, dann sind die Lampen viel zu hell.Die Einstellungen für die Lampen sind wie vorher auch und Standard bei 100 Watt.Ich hatte sonst eher das Problem, dass die Lampen zu dunkel geleuchtet haben.Woran liegt das nun?Und dann noch eine Frage: wenn man Bilder einzeln rendert, dann kann man ja im Renderfenster verschiedene Einstellungen anpassen, Helligkeit, Nachbelichtung,…See More

Multiple installations

I have a 3 user licence and nXt installed on 3 computers.In addition to this I will soon be working from two locations on two separate computers.Both computers will only be used by me and never at the same time.Is it therefore possible to install nXt on both of them under the licence agreement, and if so, how?See More
