Hi,

I am trying to cast shadows in a plan view that is of the lowest level of a high rise building - because of this, when I turn on shadows the entire plan is in shadow.  I would like to cast a small shadow from each wall/ramp for a presentation effect/depth and would like to know if I can do it in Revit instead of bringing it into photoshop. 

 Any suggestions would be great.  Cheers.

Shadows in a plan view are cast from the cut plane level.  Is this what you are asking or do you want the reverse, that is the shadow of the entire building?
