Hi,

 

How do you change the shading with edges to look like in Revit 2008. It is too dark in Revit 2009. For instance, the shading of the glazing turned to dark bluish green whie it was whitein previous version.

Did you upgrade your project from 2008 to 2009?

Revit 2009 uses differnent material types and may have overridden your 2008 material properties. Unfortunately you may have to change the properties of the materials - glass etc. to have a lighter colour for the shaded views.

I suggest you change the materials in your template file and then use Transfer Project standards yo upgrade the projects with the problems.

psymon,

I've upgraded from 2008 to 2009.  I'd tried to change the properties of the glass to using "white" color for shading but when viewed, it is grayish white. not white. shadows are turned off.

Hi,

I agree, they have changed something in the shading for Revit 2009. Even if you have white walls, when you spin the model around, depending on the angle, they can also appear grey. Interior white walls are even worse when you do interior camera views. Its almost like its using advanced shading/light source effects or something (which I have never used, so dont know if this is the cause or not...) in the basic 'shading with edges' view option. Its definitely not to do with materials properties - it seems to be a light source thing or something...

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have the "Shadows" ON? Did you change the parameters of the "SUN"? Write SU and in there you have the configurations of the SUN, check the "Hour", change to 12:00AM...

CHIRA, he aren't talking about rendering but the visual mode, "shading"

Hi,

Sun settings are set to 30June, 12am, (also tried 12pm) Sydney Australia (height of summer) for both 'Sun and shadow settings' and 'Elevation' under the 'Still' tab. , but still model is grey depending on which way you spin it in 3D view. Shadows are turned off. Is there no way to turn off all the fancy attributes so that the model is white (for materials that are white) no matter which way you spin the model, or which elevation you view?

Under the "Advanced Model Graphics" tab there are sliders for the sun "Brightness" and the Shadows "contrast" - have you moved these to see if there is a difference?
