make sure mass visibility is check in the view with the visibility setting, are you shaded view or hidden line?

A couple of things come to mind - - make sure that the view is not set to visibility -> shading with lines - make sure that your material doesn't have any transparency to it (in the material editor) otherwise the lines on the back faces of a 3D object will show through the transparent mass. see Extrusion Properties -> Materials & Finishes --> Transparency Post edited on 2005-09-27 22:19:27

I recently posted a similar question to the original of this thread, but got no response. Perhaps because it was too similar to this earlier question. Unfortunately, the replies here didn't help. My visibility is "hidden line" and transparency for the material is set at "0". It looks right on screen, but everything shows through. All other objects, (walls, doors, etc.) print/plot correctly. Here's the text of the original post: I have several masses with a stone pattern assigned to the surfaces. In the 3-D views I've created, everything looks fine. When I print though, I can see through them as though the view setting is set to "wireframe" even though it isn't. Also, all other objects print correctly - even those that have the same pattern/material assigned to the faces. I'm using Revit 8.1 Thanks, Zak

I am having the same problem - Mass object looks fine on the screen but will always print as if it's transparent. All visibility settings are "correct", the extrusion of the mass has the Default Wall material assigned with transparancy set to 0. I cannot "convert face to wall" becauxe the geometry does not work out. Very frustrating! Hope someone understands and has a proper answer.

check the print raster image checkbox in print settings, and you will get your mass.

See thread: http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=8482

Masses always print transparent. Make generic models instead. On the Modeling tab, choose Create. You may of course choose to assign a proper category instead of the Generic Model category if one applies. Then visibility can be controlled through the Visibility/Graphics control as usual.

 Unfortunately, I don't think that you can convert a mass that you've already made into a model. Instead, you will need to delete what you have. If it's an extrusion you can edit the mass, copy the sketch lines and then paste same into the model sketch. That may save some steps if the extrusion sketch is complicated.
