  1. Fastest Path to Real-Time Helps Users Explore Massive Scenes in Seconds; Free for a Limited Time LOS ANGELES, Calif. – December 2, 2020 – Today, Chaos Group releases Chaos Vantage, a new application that allows users to instantly explore their 3D scenes in a fully ray traced, real-time environment. Unlike traditional real-time methods, the import process is simple – no geometry to optimize, UVs to unwrap or lighting to bake. Users simply drag-and-drop a V-Ray scene, or live link from Autodesk 3ds Max, to bring it into real-time. Architects and designers can now interact with their
  2. Situation: I have hundreds of 2D house elevations that I need to have rendered "high (V-Ray) quality". Drawings are all 2D and current software im using is Softplan and Autocad. Im very proficient in autocad and I can draw them up 3D if I need to. For time purposes can I do this without having to draw 3D? Is there a add on for Autocad to make for better rendering? Should I use V-Ray? Should I convert to Revit then use V-Ray? What is the fastest way to do this? Id like to use the software I have but I want high quality. So im prepared to take on another software to
  3. Hello everyone! I used to model and render on 3DStudio Max but now I have to work with AutoCad12. I am crating my materials, using weblight and already set my renderer to presentation and everything... The results so far are satisfactory but I need to improve. Any online courses to refer to me? TIA!!! Aline
  4. I'm not new to AutoCAD but I am new to rendering HQ images with graphics. I am creating a trade show design and need to put the customer's graphics on the face of it... but I am failing miserably. I used to use proprietary software which allowed me to skin the graphics with ease, but I no longer use that and need to figure out how to do this in CAD. Software: AutoCAD 2015 Computer: Gateway ZX4451 Processor: AMD A4-3420 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.8GHz Memory: 4 GB with 3.47 usable Operating System: 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
  5. Hi! I'm having trouble rendering my model. When I try to render, a message comes up saying "Unable to create an output file. Make sure the destination directory is writable and that the disk is not full. Rendering aborted." It redirected me to download some library material but I still cannot render. Can anyone help pleeease? Ps I'm using AutoCAD 2014 in architectural mode, if that helps.

  7. Hi, I'm a construction engineer working with easy architectural design (45%), structural desgin (25%) and building permits for different projects (30%), for example renewal of the plumbing in 4-12 story apartment building (%= the time spent overall). I'm using basic AutoCAD in 2D, applied with domestic applications that makes the designing faster. 95% of the time I´m not in need of 3D desgin and as I'm not an architect I don't need to sell and market my designs by creating beautiful 3D pictures. But occasionally a customer would like to see their building in 3D with materials and color
  8. When viewing the model on screen it's exposed correctly, but whenever I try and render it out it's overexposed. I have included a screenshot of the rpref if that helps. Thanks!
  9. Hi, I am in need of creating a solid drawing from my wireframe drawing in model space. I have never done any 3d modeling in autocad before it took me a few days just to get the wireframe of a staircase done! I have tried to render this object in viewport but it disappears after I click on it or move around, therefore I cannot see it in my paper layout. How do I make a rendered object stay? Also I want to plot this on 22x34in and 11x17in paper, how would I go about getting a high quality rendered image. I am using autocad 2010. Thanks, Erick
  10. Guys, I am curious if this has happened to anyone else before... Whenever i add in a background image (clouds in this case), everything that is reflective becomes see through. Is there a setting that can make this go away? It does it with every, single background image that i've ever used. Recently, i've started to just not use them, but i really need to put a background with some of these for a Job Fair for our company. If you see below, the piping (i know it shouldn't be THAT reflective but that's what they want) becomes slightly see through as well as the hand rails and foot boards...A
  11. What am I doing wrong? I encountered the problem when I was test-rendering a scene where you are supposed to be able to look into nearby rooms through glass walls. But the glass reflected the surroundings like å mirror. In some tries i could bearly see some furniture in the other room, so the transperency isn't completely gone. I use a solid glass material, at first i thought the material's reflection value was too high, but it was set on five, I tried to reduce it to 1, but the rendering came out just the same. I have tried with different lighting options, but again... the same m
  12. Hi. This is my first post so I hope it goes well. I recently learned and have started using 3DS Max, so I have a fairly good grasp on how the program works but I have been running into one major issue over and over. I have been making high quality visualizations for my company (we do retail architecture). I make my model, add lighting, set up my cameras, apply all my materials, and enter all my rendering parameters. BUT as soon as I go to render, the maps refuse to render properly. Things like color and texture and finish type all render fine, but the image maps themselves will not ren
  13. Hi guys Finally it looks as though the company I work for are ready to get me a machine more capable of rendering than my current one. With a maximum budget of £2000, I have come up with the following build, which will also include Windows 7 64 bit. Although I am competent with Autocad and rendering, I really have no idea when it comes to piecing together components to give me the best performance for my money. The following list I have put together from PC Specialist. I'd appreciate it if you could have a look, and let me know if I am getting the best spec machine I can for the budget.
  14. Hi everyone! I'm designing a computer case for fun and at a VERY beginner level and have not run in to too many problems so far, however, now I'm having some kind of rendering problem! I designed 4 identical fan grills using lines and the pattern function. I already created a grill out of one of them, but when I try to do another one, the program just says "Executing Create Grill Feature" and the cursor turns into the Windows loading cursor. If I click on the program, it says it's not responding. Is it freezing? My computer is plenty fast enough to render even advanced 3D model
  15. Finally got a new laptop core i-5, 64bit!!.. its truly amazing... got no more problems with my rendering and autocad works! cheers!

    I learned how to do 3d renderings in ACAD2001 while in school. I believe we had Accurender as well. I haven't done much rendering in the past few years, but have been called upon again to do so, and now not only are my skills rusty, but I am working in ACAD2010 at the office. Most of it is coming back to me but materials are giving me trouble. What is the difference between a material from the tool pallet that I can copy, alter to my specifications, and attach VS. creating a bitmap material? or am I just making this difficult on myself and they are the same thing?! Thanks in advance!

  19. Hello, I'm the Sales Operations Manager for a Design House \ Manufacturer. We currently use AutoCAD 2011 to provide line drawings to our customers, but render requests have become more and more common. Our Marketing group employs an Artist who uses 3DS Max for renders, but our company's President does not want to distract his efforts from print and web work to work on Sales' lowly render requests. My boss has asked me to develop a "Good", "Better", and "Best" approach to customer deliverables. Good = 3D line drawing from AutoCAD Better = a SketchUp style greyscale render (with
