We present all rendering concepts and commands to obtain photorealistic images from our 3D model.
A fundamental output in all 3D models is the creation of photorealistic images, which represent how the model will look after building or fabricating it. A render is, thus, an image, which is defined in horizontal and vertical pixels obtained from a 3D model, where AutoCAD calculates the visible faces and all lighting in the scene and eventually includes indirect lighting, applied materials, and some effects such as background.
After creating the 3D scene with all commands and methods already seen, a typical rendering workflow is as follows:
Apply the lighting conditions. For exterior scenes or interior scenes where outside light is important, light due to the Sun and the sky may be considered. For artificial lights, we apply point...
