advanced rendering for AutoCAD
Under Render Settings>Passes>Print one have the option to select the size of the paper to print the rendering by using the X and Y and units, the question is:
The Density, by default is 100, in a printer it is related to how much toner the printer use to make the final print darker or lighter, Is this the same concept in nXtRender?
I've been using 8.5x11 and I need 24x36 print and wondering if I need to increase the density. Thanks to anybody who can respond.
No-- nothing to do with darker or lighter. It does define resolution by dots per unit-- for example 36" x 24" at 100 dpi will provide 3600 x 2400 rendered pixels (8.6 million). It's exactly the same as specifying 3600 x 2400 manually-- the print settings are only provided for convenience in case you're not in the mood to do the multiplication itself.
8.6 MPixels is a lot, BTW-- render time and file storage requirements will be hefty. You can often get by with fewer-- depends on the application.
8.6 MPixels is a lot indeed, specially in rendering time. Thanks a lot for the explanation, makes sense now.
