    What do you mean "it just looks normal"? Do you mean to say it is not rendered?

    If I understand your question right, you just need to click the File/Save option in the Render window. If all you're doing is saving your drawing file after you do a rendering then you're not saving the image you rendered. You're just saving your autocad drawing file again.
    It's deja vu, all over again.

    Or you can plot it, and set the shade plot option to rendered or other visual styles.

    It sounds to me like you're rendering to the viewport rather than to the render window. You might want to take some time and read through this: http://www.dscohn.com/AU/handouts/GD...rt%202-DOC.pdf
