"Okay- Think I may have figured it out. There are 2-downloads for NXT 64.I originally used the first one listed. I just switched and installed the Second for "older" versions now things are working correctly. Sorry of the trouble!Cheers!"

Block objects Not accepting Materials by layer

I've created blocks of kitchen cabinets consisting of: cabinet, counter top and sink with faucet.Cabinet is on "0" layer so I can load it to different layers as needed, Counter top and sink are on their own layers. Everything renders fine in original drawing and after I "block" it. When I import block into new drawing- and assign materials to layers only faucet renders in correct material everything else come out white. If I explode block - it still renders as white. I can go back in and attach…See More

Distortions in nXt renderd AutCAD Architecture Curved Walls

Please see the attached images.  In AutoCAD Architecture's native renderer, and in its 3d display, the curved walls appear smooth.  In nXt the materials are uneven (with sometimes extra lines that protrude from the walls).  Distortions also appear in straight walls which should be flat and smooth though the problem is less pronounced.  I tried changing the material definitions but the problem persists.  Could this be some sort of scale definition issue?The problem persists with all the…See More
