Well, of course yes Marc. Actually the prototype has been manufactured, but instead of glass, perspex was used. The temperature of melted glass was too high to leave untouched the enclosed metal figures. As a result, there were optically almost the same figures, but extremely lighter than the one from metal and glass. The final "feel" when you hold them is somehow "cheap" or "fake" now :(

Wonderful George! Do you keep a little space between glass and metal in a piece?

All model parts are solids. Metal figures are solids in solid glass box (it is proposal for real chess of our design, which would be made not from real glass but from clear plastic - probably melted perspex). Solids are not touching each other, they are floating 2mm above the chess board as well. I don't know how NXT handles internally the solid-in-solid situation, but I can see some nice refractions expected and seemed in real life. My (and not only my for sure) only objection is the rendering time. I tried the same model in different renderer acquiring equal or even better result in fraction of time (in 1/6 to be exact). I think nXt needs to be speeded up somehow, speed of rendering in certain conditions and using particular combination of lights and materials is now really the only drawback it has.

Mario, what do you mean by D2 and D4?

License Problem

Dear All- I purchased a license for Nxt back in 2011- I migrated to AutoCAD 2013 2 years later- I have recently changed my system with the same AutoCad 2013- When I try to renew my AccuRender Ver 1.0.358, it does not accept the original 30 numeralCode.- I know that we need to renew the software if we are using a new AccuRender.- Therefore, since I cannot renew until it is approved by the management, where can I find theolder AR5 64 Bit version to reinstall.Thanks!!!BirdmanSee More
