AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Can't seem to import .obj files with texture maps.  Mesh imports just fine but without textures!

Any recommendations?!

Thank you in advance!

Are the material files (*.mtl) located in the same folder as the .obj?  These are required for textures.

Nope, even when the files are in the same folder it does not work


I did check-- it still works for all of my old test cases so nothing's gone wrong generally with the obj reader.

Thanks for the trashbin example-- there is a problem here.  (No way to know if it's the same problem being experienced by alexinfla without more info.)  I was able to get it to read the jpg file into the material by removing the tab character before the line "map_Kd" in the .mtl file using a text editor.  This is something I can fix at my end.  Even after I make the change in the mtl file there may still be something wrong with the texture coords.  I will check further this weekend.

Any updates?  Should I download the latest build?  I haven't in quite some time.



Haven't gotten to it yet-- I've got two items ahead of it but it's floating back to the top of the list.

Groundcover Issues

Hello,I am hoping to get some clarity on how to modify and add groundcover. I have searched everywhere on the forum and online to find how to save a plant as .ArGroundcover, but I cannot find anything. I am using AccuRender Plant Editor and once I finish editing the plant that I want to use as a groundcover, I click "save plant as", but all it allows me to save as is .ArTree. I have a deadline to get this render finished, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out. See More
