Cloud rendering (RENDERONLINE) nested block material issues

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys


I have been using cloud rendering from AutoCAD since the feature was released and reproting bugs to the development team along the way.


One of of the most fundamental issues i have encountered is the loss of materials from blocks when nested inside xrefs.


Heres my model set up:

I have a model of my home that i use to test the rendering capabilities at each new release, Each room in the house is a separate drawing all xref'd together into a drawing containing only cameras/lights and a geographic location. Inside each of the rooms i have blocks for various pieces of decor/furniture etc.


The problem is, the translation engine is not passing the information to the cloud correctly resulting in missing materials.


Here's a draft render (low quality freebie) showing a picture frame which is missing its picture:



Rendering the objects from within the block is fine:



Anyone else running into this issue, who have a workaround (without having to explode all my blocks in my model)?
