Hi,

My first post here. I am having rendering issues with balusters in Revit 2009. regardless of the material I apply to the balusters in the project browser they will not render with that material. Rails accept material changes fine and the balusters will shade (or shade with edges) properly in the view window, but when rendered they hold a single color.

this is probably something very simple I am missing.

images attached.

That's not a "Baluster", that's a Railing, look at the images...

As you have pointed out the rails - top and bottom - are rendering based on the testure i have applied - see image.

The balusters (2 different kinds in this railing) regardless of what texture i assign to them - available in the project browser - do not render.

Sorry, i thought you are talking about those Black rails, in the first post you have "Metal - Aluminium" in the last post you have "kawneer - Anodiz", now my question is: is this the same material (texture) in Render Appearence?

Ohhh sorry, that last picture is about Rails and not the balusters....

I am probably not being very clear. This railing like all railings, is made up of rails (horizontal elements) and balusters (vertical elements)

The rails which render black in my first post are correct - they have a kawneer finish -

The balusters, which I want to render the same will not accept (or rather will not render) with that or any other texture I apply. I have tried just assigning the color black to them I have tried a multitude of different finishes - including the aluminum setting - no texture so far wants to render.

They do shade however.

They work fine with me, try to open that family and check if there are some material parameter in that baluster, check the name then in project go to materials and see what material have that same name...

See attached images.

I set all the railing componants to the same material - as you can see they shade the same - the included screen from the completed render shows the problem

Did you open that family? did you check what is the parameter (name) of the material into the family?

I assume by category is correct - I havent edited the family at all - just assigned material in the project

try opening the family, re asign the black rendering ones, and change the name of the material. Then re-load the family into proyect, overwrite existing. Voliá.

Hi there Earchitect, 
 
If you are really wanting to get to the bottom of this, try posting your stripped down .rvt file and we can troubleshoot the rendering issues.
 
Otherwise try using a different render material to see if thats the problem, change the background to 'sky' instead of colour, play with the reflectivity of the surface etc.
 
Hope this helps!

My thanks to everyone for their responses and suggestions.

While I never resolved the render issue with the generic rail componants I was using, by downloading a family from a manufacturer I was able to install a rail in the model that fit my needs and rendered properly.

attached is a progress rendering of my first full Revit based project.
