I have a topo surface with RPC trees, and a curious problem... with shadows and sun path turned on, I get shadows cast on 90% of my trees, but some trees near the periphery don't cast any shadows (see screenshot). These trees are exactly the same family type and have all of the same visibility settings w/ no overrides. The ground planes are such that they should receive shadows. It almost seems like a problem of the range of the sun's shadow casting - for some reason it is cutting off the lower right and mid-left portions of the site?

Hi. I found that trees with some transparency (revit 2013) do not cast shadows. I am using trees from archigrafix (http://www.archigrafix.com), i am not sure what trees you are using . however I guess the transparency/shadow applies to all objects in revit.

I had this problem in Revit 2013.

My trees were transparent and not casting a shadow (and everything else was) so I edited the tree family.

Drew a selection box over the tree foliage so they're highlighted, opened material editer.   

I just duplicated the material and then changed the transparency to 0... saved family and loaded into project.

My trees cast shadows now Smile

You can also open the tree family and open its visibility settings and check "Plan/RCP" for the tree to display.  The shadows will show in plan view.
