Have you ever tried rendering in AutoCAD just to find yourself intimidated by all the gzillion different settings and variables? I certainly have. Those of us who don't have an advanced degree in photography will love the new low-stress and friendly Rendering in AutoCAD 2016!
The new render engine knows how to talk to us "average Joes" who just want to create an awesome rendering. It's simpler and yields better results - who wouldn't vote for that? The tooltips are super user friendly and check out the new Render Presets list that explains ever-so-clearly how much time it's going to take to render! Do you want a quick render that lasts about as long as a Coffee-Break? Or are you ready for the commitment of an Overnight render?
New Image Based Lighting (IBL) options make it easy for you to put your model in a cool environment like a plaza, a village or a Snow Field!
And check out the results!
There are many more Render improvements in AutoCAD 2016 - just realize that the bottom line is rendering is easier to do and yields better results!
