AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD


What did I do?

I've been using 254 bfor a while with no problem. Now all at once when I hit the walkabout button it flashes the walkabout window on the screen and disappears.

Must be time to go home for today.

Never mind, I guess I've never tried to activate the walkabout screen while in Acad paperspace before. Nxt don't like that evidently.

Yes i did break it. I switched to model space and got the walkabout back up but it renders a black screen. Completely rebotted my PC and reloaded Acad and still renders black screen.

If I render the same viewpoint straight from the autocad window it runs fine.


I dunno, time to go home, I'll think about it tomorrow.


Hmmm.... try loading a named view from AutoCAD then rendering.  Save a copy of the broken drawing by the way-- I'm very interested.

I have a named view that is set in the walkabout window. It is also displayed on my modelspace viewport. If I open the walkabout window it displays my model correctly but when I render it I get a black screen and it renders very fast like there is nothing there. If I render the same view directly from my Acad viewport it renders fine.

Acad file will be uploaded momentarily.

I never got the uploaded file.  Try again?

I loaded a different file this am and it renders fine from the walkabout.

So I reloaded the offending file and it still renders a black sacreen from the walkabout.

I can't figure out what numb skull thing I did. Probably some simple user error.

I may be off base here, but this would be quick to try.

Just a thought here but if you had set things up in paper space, you might try deletting your camera and reinserting a new one. It seems like there could be many potential problems from cutting a camera from paper space and inserting it in model space.

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)."
