AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Dear all,

Any idea how to set a special HDRI-file to be default sky for a new nxt session? As I work with couple favourite ones, mostly hires, I'd like to avoid looking for the last used one every time I start new project.

A file rnl_probe.hdr is the default one at the moment. I have changed the location, but it looks like the software set this one as default wherever it is placed. Seems that neither folder nor path don't matter at all...

Roy, any help appreciated...

I would try using AutoCAD's template drawing facility. Create a template drawing with whatever nXt stuff in it you want. 

No way to sort it out using JUST nXt settings? 

I goes this way: Acad drawings, 2D, working drawings, and SOMETIMES 3D files made of this. Which makes me believe, I will have to LOAD nxt EVERY TIME i work with acad...  :(   Actually no need for this.

Anywat, thanks for tip.

You won't have to load nXt everytime.  (You will, have to load it, if you change a drawing from one version of AutoCAD to another using SaveAs-- otherwise you'll trash your nXt data.)

No, there's nothing in the software currently that changes the default HDRI settings.  You can request it from Al or Rich as a wishlist item.

Ok, just to clarify: creating my own "dwt" file with my own nxt settings allows me to get these as I start to work, even with no nxt running on the screen? No nxt data will be trashed?

If so, the problem solved. There is no point to implement one more item as a wishlist item...

Thanks, Roy.

Purchased a new subscription to Autodesk. When I logged into Autodesk, it automatically upgraded my version I was using and installed 2021 version. Now my AccuRender NXT does not work nor will it load on 2021 version.I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get support but I am not receiving anything.I have paid and downloaded the latest version of NXT but it's not working nor is the support working. Having been an NXT CUSTOMER for many years, I am extremely disappointed in the support.Not sure…See More
