AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

My computer completely crashes if I try adding groundcover or rather having added it, I then try to render.

I admit it is quite an old machine with an Inter Core I5 and 3gb Memory running at 3.2gHz

Need much more info to begin this one-- AutoCAD version / nXt version / and OS for a start.  Which render engine?

What do you mean by completely crashes?  Does AutoCAD keep running?  Does Windows keep running?  Do you get an error msg telling you it crashes or does the thing just seize up? Can you render a simple drawing with groundcover?  Is it a particular drawing or groundcover?

Best thing to do is to send us a model that's crashing and we'll take a look.  Simplify the model as much as possible, but make sure it still crashes.  I'll probably let Rich have at it first.

Sorry.

Windows 7 Home Premium

AutoCAD 2012.

Accurender Nxt 1.0.355

Message is something like "loading groundcover" - nothing else

I wait 10 minutes.

Ctl Alt Del fails. I have to turn machine off.

Can you send us the groundcover file and one of your models, to see if we can duplicate the problem here?

Here is one.

That groundcover file works for me.

I assume that we are trying to fine the image file for the grass on you machine, and looking everywhere if we cannot find it, and that is taking forever to do the search.

On my machine, that image file is located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Render Plus Systems\IRender_nXt\bin_Nxt\Support\Plants\Leaves\Leaf004.png

Could you see if that file exists on your computer?

Yes it does exist.

I am using nxt to add groundcover and browsing for the file.

It stops when loading file.

That's what I did too.

I installed the older version of AccuRender that you're running, but it works fine for me.

Wen you have a chance, could you let it run for maybe a half hour and see if it ever returns?

Send a sample drawing with the groundcover if possible-- it may be a scale issue.

I have already sent dwg. But here it is again.

I don't see the model attached here.

Can you send it to me using my email address?

"I really have no idea.  This software hasn't been supported for more than a decade.  Anything you can get to work will be fine from a licensing perspective, I just don't have much to offer you."

Accurender 3 + Acad ADT3 + Windows 10

Wonder if anyone can help. At home I run Windows 7, at work I have Windows 10.At home I use Accurender 3 with Acad ADT3, installed by loading my old Accurender 3 disk, the  downloading the latest *arx file, which I see on my home computer is Accuren3_2000.Can I still download the Accuren3_2000 update from anywhere, and will it work with the office set up anyway? I have tried simply copying the Accuren3_2000.arx from home to work into the Accurender folder in the usual location, but when trying…See More

"I'm guessing it's the same problem.  nXt has to be present for a conversion to work properly with a drawing that has nXt data.  That's a known issue.  Converting using any other method probably will not work properly if…"

"I think Norton mentioned that he did the conversion using TrueView, not the AutoCAD itself. He is still on ver. 2010 I suppose, otherwise he could do renderings directly in 2018. Maybe TrueView isn't quite versionwise correct as regards to…"

"One additional thought.  A known issue when saving drawings to a previous version is that nXt must be loaded and running before you convert the drawing. Try the following: 1. Open your 2018 drawing in AutoCAD. 2. Start nXt by typing…"
