What is AccuRender?

AccuRender technology creates stunning, life-like images from your 3-D models inside AutoCAD® 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and Architectural Desktop. (Mechanical Desktop is no longer supported.)

AccuRender is the only renderer for AutoCAD® that uses raytracing and radiosity technologies to create high quality, photorealistic, still, panorama, and animation image files.

Image quality

AccuRender brings you new technology with the highest image quality, accuracy, and ease-of-use available in AutoCAD® today. With AccuRender, you can apply materials and lights to your models.

AccuRender provides accurate indirect lighting calculation, soft shadows, color bleeding, and lighting analysis tools. Raytracing provides accurate reflections, refractions, shadows, and more, to create unrivaled realism.

Fast and efficient

AccuRender supports multiprocessors and background processing. Scenes in AccuRender can be set up in one tenth the time needed for most other renderers.

Unlike other renderers, AccuRender can be interrupted while processing to revise material assignments or lighting. You are not forced to wait for the entire process to complete before you can view your image.

Easy to use

With AccuRender you don't need to be a professional renderer or a lighting engineer to get realistic results quickly. Physically-based light source intensities are specified in watts, lumens, or candelas throughout.

AccuRender materials are assigned to layers or objects. No other steps are needed.


AccuRender costs far less than any other product that can create images of this quality.

Because you work in your modeling application, learning cost is minimal.

Hardware requirements are the same as your modeling application.

Virtual reality is completely interactive viewing of fully rendered models, even on a basic PC or across the Internet.

Runs inside

With other radiosity-based renderers, if you change your model, you start over and reapply materials and lighting. With AccuRender, everything is saved with the model, and any changes to the model can be immediately rendered in AccuRender. You never need to start over.

AccuRender extends the capabilities of the modeling software you are comfortable and familiar with.

Extensive libraries

Over 5,000 materials, 500 plants, and 300 light fixtures are included with AccuRender.

Additionally, AccuRender provides a materials editor so you can create your own specialized materials from bitmaps or procedural patterns.

Procedural materials

Most renderers rely entirely on bitmap materials that must be tediously "mapped" on to each object. AccuRender supports bitmap and procedural materials like marble, granite, tile, and wood that can be assigned to objects, blocks, or layers.

Procedural materials penetrate through the part instead of being "wrapped" around it. A wood beam will show a rift sawn grain pattern on the sides and end grain on the end. The growth rings penetrate through the beam like real wood instead of being wrapped around it like shelf paper.

Fractal vegetation

Over 500 species of mathematically generated 3-D plants with seasonal variation are included with AccuRender. Most other products paste on simple bitmaps, giving unrealistic shadows and reflections.

Realistic 3-D trees and plants are "grown" in memory at the time of rendering to produce life-like results.

System Requirements

Hardware requirements

  • No special hardware is needed beyond what is required for AutoCAD.
  • Note: Windows x64 and AutoCAD 64-bit are NOT yet supported.
  • Note: AccuRender 4.0 does not run with Revit. But AccuRender nXt does. Try the nXt beta.


A faster processor will decrease rendering time in direct proportion to increased processor speed unless you are running out of memory. AccuRender supports dual processors. Two processors are will decrease rendering time nearly in half.


More memory will speed up rendering 10 to 1000 times if you run out. You have run out of memory if your computer is running the hard disk constantly when you are rendering. If you have not run out of memory, more memory will not make any difference.

Graphic card

A faster graphics card will have no effect on rendering time.
