Hello everyone, I'm using revit architecture 2011. I have a problem with lighting fixtures that I put in my ceiling + wall. I have checked the options and everything is how it should be - wattage comments, electrical type etc. But everytime I try to run interior artificial lighting only they dont seem to be working. Though the lighting fixtures I use on the desk does work. Anyone can inlight me please, I would appreciate it!

 

Thanks in advace,

Ram

check the location of the light source in the family. It may be behind solid geometry and can't shine through.

i am having a problem with my canned lighting in my ceiling, the light will shine through and show up on the floor but when i render the view looking up at the light i do not see any light coming from the light itself, how do i get the light bulb to show up in the light, i like the way the light looks on the ground, but it looks very funny when you look up at the light and you do not see any light coming out of the fixture, can anyone help??

Your "light bulb" needs to have a glow property set.

But it needs to be the material you assigned in your family.

Please read the similar threads on lighting as your questions have been covered many times before.  Also learn more about families.  Download the families guide from the autodesk site and read it.

 

Typical lighting problems are caused by:

  1. Recessed light doesn't cut the ceiling.
  2. No light in the light...in other words - just something to look at in the model.
  3. The light is behind a solid object - like a lens which is NOT transparent.
  4. In-correctly assigned materials.
  5. Lights not turned on in rendering.

Maybe this helps:

try to set the intensity of the light to a really high value (1.000.000 lm)

Revit 2016. I guess I don't get it.  At all.  I've tried putting ceilings in and the light fixtures end up in the floor.  Place it in first floor ceiling plan, fixture is literally in the toilet.  It would be great if there was a tutorial on this site......  I'm a student trying to learn this stuff, so please, if you respond, don't use revit code.  Kindly spell it out.  I'm reading some of these threads and frankly, they are way over my head.   Thanks.

My first question is: Are you using a Revit reflected ceiling plan created from the plan options or did you copy a floor plan and call it a ceiling plan? That is a common mistake of newbies.  Read this.

Been watching you tube videos on the subject.  Follow all the steps to making a ceiling in the ceiling plan and placing lights in the ceiling plan.  Lights end up in the floor.....  Don't get it.

Your process is wrong somehow but too many possibilities for us to guess.  You need to tell us more and add some screen shots if you expect any help.
