Is there any way to subtract model text (that has a depth) out of an object...like a wall? i.e. have the text rebated into the wall (negative detail) thanks

thanks for the suggestion rdesign. Trouble is that I dont want to raytrace the image (ie use accurender materials). I just want to have a shaded view with shadows turned on. cheers

just set the model text flush to the wall surface. then use join geometry. this will make Revit cut the text from the wall.
