"Tile size is a material property in nXt.  You edit the material and specify the size of each tile in real world units.  The units in your drawing must be set correctly for this to work. Mapping in nXt affects only orientation, not scale."

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 roy. been a user and a fan for almost 20 years. just bought the nxt upgrade. got a e-licence number and a cd-key . tried to type them into the "paste product key" window (what is the product key ? i got a cd-key ... are they the same ?). keep getting the same window with no result.

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?
