It turned out that the Support folder had been left out in the latest 64 bit nXtRender install, so the nXt material Editor was not showing the sample rendered image correctly.We posted a new install…Continue
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

"To test all this, first I uninstalled the thumbnail program.
To do that, I just typed in (in an Administrator command window):
cd c:\Program files\AccuRender nxt

"I see that if I turn the soffit layer off, that those can lights on the right are working. So I assume the soffit is blocking the light.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to try moving the can lights down for some reason.
I can try looking into this…"
"Unfortunately, the model was still just too large for my machine. After about 15 minutes I had to turn off the computer so that I could do something else while it was rendering..
Could you give me any idea of where the lights are that don't…"
"Can you send us a model where this is happening, to see if we can duplicate it here?

Wonder if anyone can help. At home I run Windows 7, at work I have Windows 10.At home I use Accurender 3 with Acad ADT3, installed by loading my old Accurender 3 disk, the downloading the latest *arx file, which I see on my home computer is Accuren3_2000.Can I still download the Accuren3_2000 update from anywhere, and will it work with the office set up anyway?

"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…"
"Interesting. I'm not sure what I can do about it-- the oldest AutoCAD I have available for testing is 2013. AutoCAD 2010 is actually 12 years old which is an eternity in software. You can try sending me a simple converted…"
