Somewhere along the line when we set up our new computer (Win 10) we goofed on the file associations of the material and trees files. The icons within WIndows Explorer don't read...the tree icons are…Continue

"Yep-- just checked-- it doesn't look like there's a setting for this.  I'm sure I did it to simplify the blocks inserted into AutoCAD.  It obviously doesn't work very well for some plants."

"Actually, it's the nXt plants/trees that are affected by this more profoundly. See attached image files....Just use old copied plants/trees? John"

"10-4...Thanks for the quick reply Roy. May end up loading all (well...maybe not all, but at least some favorites) the legacy plants/trees using AR4 into a file for transfer into newer environments. John"

"Looks like it's just missing a branch level when it's represented in AutoCAD under nXt-- probably by design to reduce the complexity of the AutoCAD blocks.   The trunks look identical.  No-- I don't think there's…"

Render Window

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 9:43am 0 Comments

Odd question: I started a rendering then minimized ACAD. I can see that the rendering is processing by the tab at the bottom of the screen, but can only bring ACAD back up. The rendering window won't restore...maybe I'm not waiting long enough? I can highlight/depress the tab, but nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks - John

"So the original render farm having 4 nodes with 20 cores each, doesn't have a problem (although they still only max to 80%). Whereas the new server farm has three machines with 40 cores each and therefore underperforms. Correct? So, what would…"

"Try switching the View to something like Large Icons: I've also had people say they've had to reboot before the change took effect. Try that."
