AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello,

I need help, with NXT I don't know how to attach a graphic (logo) on a taper shape sign.

Somebody can help me?

Is it possible?

See the file I attached

Thank you

Cylindrical mapping.

Thank you George but it canot work it is not a cylinder it is a like a cone. See the jpeg I attached previously.

With the cylinder command the size of the circle bottom diameter must be identique to the top?

Let me know if I miss something

Merci for your help

Sorry Eric, I didn't noticed there was attachment. I don't know how to do it in nXt, but it is really easy to do it in Blender for instance. Then just export the object on OBJ format and insert it in nXt as textured model. The only problem on that method is that you must be somehow familiar with Blender and its UV mapping procedure.

I don't how work Blender. I find a easier way... I will had with CorelDraw.

Thank you for the tip.

Am I missing something here? cylindrical mapping wont work for you?

something like this?

Yup ;)

bad example. I used the first long sign image I found and copied it 3 times to fit the circumference. .The graphic does not tile seamless. 

Another test using a grid so you can see how setting the decal radius larger than the object projects to fit.

Still a slight gap where they join.

Thank you guys, I thought cylinder wouldn't work for that shape.

Have a nice weekend

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

"That sorted it - using the Studio camera and then selecting "Get AutoCAD view"."

"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)."
