Roy, All...Upgraded to new computer and software...Win 10, ACAD Architect 2017, nXt 1.0.358...Working on new rendering/dwg file, starting with one done last year. Previously working imported 3DS objects (people) are weirding out...putting materials in the wrong locations (see attached.)Thought I'd start from scratch...new file.

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to John Ferris's discussion Legacy Plants
"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."

John Ferris replied to John Ferris's discussion Legacy 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"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to John Ferris's discussion Legacy Plants
"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

"Just released 0093.  This fixes a crash bug that can occur on certain systems when the ArStudio command is used but the legacy product has not been loaded (by typing nXt, for example)."
