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 do much better--  far more threads are created than the number of physical cores present,  the scheduler and the load balancing is much improved, and the hard-coded limit is gone.  I've only got 16 physical cores here, so it's a bit hard to test.  It's almost a moot point since I implemented noise-reduction, most renderings converge so fast now that I'm not yearning for extra cores.

Okay. Just tried to install and run ArStudio, but I get this message inside AutoCAD:

There should be an Update Manager in the Start menu.  Grab and install 0267.  If this doesn't work I'll send a link.

"I'm guessing it's the same problem.  nXt has to be present for a conversion to work properly with a drawing that has nXt data.  That's a known issue.  Converting using any other method probably will not work properly if…"

"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…"

"If it's crashing consistently with a particular drawing, let me know, there may be a problem.  Please don't use all caps when composing forum messages."

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. Textured Material - Use a material with a grass texture image.This model was rendered by simply using the textured nXt material call Grass-Rye_Dark.ArMaterial.This material is included with the standard nXt Material Libraries that can be downloaded here:…See More
