The WalkAbout interface provides a variety of services encapsulated into a single nXtRender utility. Its basic functions include:

  • An alternative to AutoCAD viewing and navigation commands, including an intuitive walk-through mode.
  • Fixed aspect ratio viewports so that exact views can be replicated consistently, even across different machines.
  • An interactive image background interface for placing models into photographs.

Some advanced features can only be accessed through the WalkAbout interface. These include:

  • Additional projections not found in AutoCAD, such as two-point perspectives and panoramas.
  • A batch processor which allows you to calculate and save multiple renderings in a single session.
  • 3D Slide Show-- an easy to use yet sophisticated animation engine.
  • A sun study animation engine.
  • The ability to render a rectangular region of your view.:
