AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Using nXt version 348...

When inserting legacy plants, they appear in plan (and 3d) very small, not showing the true limits of the plant size as were shown in AR4. See attached image...same plant.

Is there a way to overcome this? Maybe resolved in latest version?

Thanks for your help,

John

Rendering, side by side, showing they are same scale.

Looks like it's just missing a branch level when it's represented in AutoCAD under nXt-- probably by design to reduce the complexity of the AutoCAD blocks.   The trunks look identical.  No-- I don't think there's any facility in there to change this behavior.  

10-4...Thanks for the quick reply Roy.

May end up loading all (well...maybe not all, but at least some favorites) the legacy plants/trees using AR4 into a file for transfer into newer environments.

Actually, it's the nXt plants/trees that are affected by this more profoundly.

See attached image files....Just use old copied plants/trees?

Yep-- just checked-- it doesn't look like there's a setting for this.  I'm sure I did it to simplify the blocks inserted into AutoCAD.  It obviously doesn't work very well for some plants.

Will make do...copying insertions of plants from older projects.

Thanks again Roy,

John

"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…"

Grass Options for nXtRender

A user asked about the different ways to add grass to a model. Below are sample renderings showing 3 different approaches, along with links to download the groundcover and material files used.1.
