Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Peter Milner's discussion Soft Shadows

In AR3 was how to render fonts in Windows ... You typed the letters of any Windows font, and apply the material and everything went right .... I could not do the same NXT .... Create letters I had to manually ... how to render the letters typed by AUTOCAD??

Bom dia Roy! Estou com dificuldades ao ADD plantas e e arvores, em alguns arquivos  eles ficam gigantes, e em alguns ficam normal, onde,quando ou como corrijo essa questão de escala das plantas, seria antes de iniciar o NXT, ou na hora de criar o projeto em DWG,

Agradeço  muito se puder me auxiliar, pois estou sempre  exportando os arquivos  DWG para ambientes onde as plantas estão na escala, com isso o arquivo fica muito grande mesmo depois de purgar!!

Hi...I would like to know this license is for single user or multiple user? Normally how you control the license? For example, now i install this plug in software into computer A, suddently i change my mind , i install again this software into computer B, is there any problem occur? Do you have any extra charges for the upgrade version?

rendering of AutoCAD defined materials

Hi!I have a problem with proper rendering of a 3D model texturized using materials prepared in AutoCAD material editor.AutoCAD texturized materials with finish bumps and/or relief patterns are rendered by nXt as flat textures - bumps/relief settings set in AutoCAD material editor are ignored by nXt during rendering. Is this normal situation? Do I have to prepare materials with bumps from scratch in nXt material editor?Regards,DominikSee More
