I am trying to do some presentation interior elevations which is very new for me.  I am also just learning about view templates and advaced model graphics.  I have created an interior elevation and set the view template to Arhitecture Presentation Elevation which is great for an outside elevation.  However I am not so keen on how the shadows are showing.  So I am curious is there an interior shadow setting?  Does any onve have a few pointers for me?

 

Thanks,

Raina Mc

there isn't really a different shadow setting for interiors vs exterior. The only thing that will be different is that when looking at an interior view that has windows, the shadows will be affected by the placement of the sun and the windows. its really just takes some time to make it look the way you want. If you want it to be realistic, Change the time and place for the advance model graphics to the area that your model will be located.

I've found that trying to be realistic about the shadows for interior elevations can be all but impossible for certain elevations. I've taken to shading for interiors to simply help the read of the space and the details. Especially for a presentation. Here's an example. I just use sun on upper left or upper right, and adjust the parameters until I get a nice looking image. You also need to get your cut plane to a good spot so the shadows from the ceiling and walls aren't too deep. HTH.

jrmello, that elevation looks good.  how did you get the profile line around your elevation so clean?  mine look more like section cuts than interior elevation profiles.

Unfortunately, that's the tedious part. If you want it to be clean like that the best way is to use a Masking or Filled region and then shut the crop box visibility off. You can also try to bring the crop close to the thick cut line and then shut it off, avoiding the masking, but inevitably you'll end up with some spots that aren't very clean looking.

You can override the graphics in the view so that the wall interiors are white and bring the crop region within the wall.  This will eliminate most of the unwanted stuff without masking.

Also the shadow darkness can be controlled by making the shadows lighter in the advanced model graphics (now called graphic display options).
