As a personal favour can you please take any of your works like this one delete the building and replace with a dummy, living all other things and, lighting, materials, etc and then save an email to me at, . This way I can learning from your way of doing things to improve my work, both in material creation and scene set up.


Thank you, in advance.

Dear Mr. Marc,

it's a pleasure to have you as friend. I have being following your torrential (all beautiful and educative) comments on the NXT page of professionals.

Over the years, i have being a practicing Architects and construction engineer. I have being looking for a viable individual like you or Archicad/Autocad institution to pursue an advance training/learning.

Here in my country Sierra Leone (West Africa), we very accustomed to the conventional way of designs and drawings, and in the past couple of years, fortunate Sierra Leoneans who opted to study Architecture/Autocad because we lack such institutions (Architecture) they have to travel overseas for training. Up to this day we have not had Architectural institution or it department at our University!!! Except Civil engineering.

Being a professional Architect is my long time dream since my childhood. If there is anything or anyway you could help me even if it's just for 2 weeks training/learning period, i will appreciates it. Architect/Autocad in Sierra Leone is a very lucrative business especially modern day designs 3Ds etc and they are in high demand. Very few architectural firm providing 3Ds modelling designs. And if there any, it has to be an imported job from neighboring countries like Ghana or Nigeria.

Here is email (

My best regards to you.

Bakar Smart-Kanu.

Bonjour Marc,

Je ne fais pas encore de rendu avec Autocad 2011, j'y vais progressivement, je l'explore a l'occasion mais je sais qu'ils ont beaucoup amélioré le gestionnaire de texture. Il y a sur Youtube des clips.

Je ne sais pas comment vas le marché canadien(le pays est grand) dans le domaine du rendu architectural, moi je suis en exposition (exhibit show). J'ai placé des rendus sur mon profil, elles ont été retirées prétextant qu'elles ont été créé avec AR4!

Donne-moi ton courriel je vais te faire parvenir des images.

Merci pour ta réponse, tu me rassure!

Je suis designer d'exposition pour une grosse firme a Montréal et je fais mes rendus avec Accurender depuis toujours avec mon propre équipement. Mes collègues utilisent 3D studio Viz, c'est comme prendre la navette Columbia pour se rendre a Trois-Rivières! C'est compliqué !

Ma crainte c'est la compatibilité de NXT avec mes vieux dessins Ar4. Vais-je perde tous les paramètres? 

Le module de rendu d'Autocad 2011 n'est pas mal, as-tu essayé?

Dans quelle région du demeure?

Bonjour Marc,
je suis de Montréal,J'imagine que tu parle francais?
Tu utilse NXT ?,
J'ai acheté le programme il y a une semaine. J'utilise Accurender3 depuis les débuts et j'ai une crainte de changer de système. J'ai besoin de conseil...

J'ai bien tes rendus couleurs...

Hi Mark I saw your renders and look fabulous. I saw that you use a lot of 3d roof tiles.Do you use a plugin to do it, or you just mold and place it?

Merci pour tes postes, je n'ai pas tout compris car sur la version d'évaluation j'ai l'impression que beaucoup de chose manque. ( moi j'avais l'habitude de manipuler ma vue autocad sur accurender puis de lancer le rendu et là je ne retrouve pas comment faire) Bref de toute façon pour mon taf j'ai besoin de l'acheter alors zou je verrai bien! Je suis designer environnement et produit (lunettes et mobiliers) enfin là je fais plus du design intérieur( particulier , muséo, agencement...).Pour JAVA ce sont les initiales cumulées de mes noms de familles et prénoms (beaucoup plus courts).
Bonne journée ( froide et enneigé pour nous!)

bonjour! ouf un français j'étais justement en train de me motiver à écrire sur le forum mais mon anglais technique, je dois l'avouez me pause problème! Saurais tu m'aider?
Je m'apprête à acheter nxt, mais malheureusement il me parait moins facile à utiliser que le bon vieux accurender ( JE M'Y RETROUVE PAS TROP).
Par exemple comment on load la vue, comment on règle son point de vue (avec une dollie, manuellement) ex...
Par ailleurs j'utilise parralel desktop sur mac pour avoir autocad 2008.. la version d'évaluation de nxt y fonctionne visiblement, pense tu que ça fera un beug avec la version achat?

Hello... how are you ?
I like what I do ...
I feel good when I see a nice photo made by me, with the help of NXT software.
I know I still have much to learn.

But I hope to make money with this in the future...

Hello! I agree with your opinion.
Your advice came to me well.
As I said, I am new in this area
for me is like a cosmos.
6 months ago, I don't imagined how great it is.
I'll be careful to understand better the textures,
and I will do that better
because I have a good teacher.
Why Spain?
I do not know. It was my parents' decision!
I came to Spain with the whole family
looking for a normal life.
I don't thought how much time will be..

Salut Marc, merci pour le commentaire! Je ne pratique pas la 3D en tant que designer mais je traduis déjà un autre logiciel de la même société, peut-être le connais-tu, il s'agit de Rhino 3D. Pour les termes techniques j'utilise Google, wikipédia, la documentation d'autres logiciels 3D, des dictionnaires spécialisés et les commentaires des utilisateurs. D'ailleurs, si des choses ne te semblent pas très précises ou carrément inexactes, tu peux m'écrire ( pour me le faire savoir.

Purchased a new subscription to Autodesk. When I logged into Autodesk, it automatically upgraded my version I was using and installed 2021 version. Now my AccuRender NXT does not work nor will it load on 2021 version.I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get support but I am not receiving anything.I have paid and downloaded the latest version of NXT but it's not working nor is the support working. Having been an NXT CUSTOMER for many years, I am extremely disappointed in the support.Not sure…See More
