New Print to 2D PDF Function!

Available now: We have introduced a new “2D PDF” option when saving a rendered image. You may already use one of the other formats offered – this is simply a further option you might find fits a need.

Benefit: One benefit of saving a 2D PDF version of a rendering is that the file size is small (and can be adjusted), and if you want to insert it in a document it will help keep your overall file size down. Large files can still cause problems when emailed, so as an alternative to zipping, you can ensure they are small from the outset.

Included with: This feature has been added to IRender nXt (SketchUp), 3D Design Studio (SketchUp), nXtRender (AutoCAD), and nXtRender (Revit).

How to access: Click the “Save rendered image to disk” icon Save icon.png in the rendering window once you have stopped rendering (if you are a nXtRender for AutoCAD user you will see a “Save As” dialog after clicking on the icon – select a directory/folder, type a file name, change the file type to PDF).

Click on the 2D PDF button at the bottom of the dialog.

On the resulting dialog (below), there are a range of options to help you configure the image.

Note: Checking the “Crop to Image” checkbox (below) will save a cropped version of your rendering. This is important as it will allow you to place the image in a document you create without having to further edit it.

Kevin Neprud & Associates User Experience

We had an interesting interview with Kevin Neprud, an IRender nXt user. Kevin's design expertise includes both building and industrial design, and his fascinating amphibious vehicle and building exteriors caught our attention. He has used IRender nXt as he found it easy to learn and it produces high quality renderings.
