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

"Interesting.  ArStudio has its own WalkAbout-like feture, it's the little camera button.  If you do it while the preview is running you should see the view changes automatically in the rendering."

"I'm having trouble getting the desired view in Studio. I've tried setting the view in nXt walkabout and then using that to set the AutoCAD view. However, when I render from Studio, it gives me something different (see images below)."

"Sort of-- nXt has a hard-coded max of 32 but you get diminishing returns before than point.  If you go beyond 32 they can sometimes be used, depending on the load.  I guess I would still think of 32 as a practical limit. ArStudio should…"
