Hi guys,

 

I tried to change anodised aluminium to a colour close to Black for my exterior walls. It seemed to work ok, it displays fine in Revit, until I render it - then it seems to be the original aluminium colour.

 

I have attached a few images of before and after rendering, and some properties. Let me know if you need more info. I am a beginner, so I might be overlooking something simple.

 

I am using Revit Architecture 2012.

 

Thanks in advance.

You might try just using a black paint.

Thanks for the reply. I just tried using paint on the walls; it didn't work - but I think I'm a little closer to the solution. You can see it renders a little differently. It might be a problem with a render setting, rather than a material setting.

 

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

 

Thanks.

Having done a few more experiments I found out that the problem occurs when I actually pick a custom colour. For example: picking another aluminium option "Metal - Aluminium" it showed as black and rendered black too. But when I tried to choose a slightly brighter colour, it rendered as the same grey shown above.

 

How should I go about choosing custom colours, because I seem to be doing it wrong?

I had been changing the colour here, (see attached image) just below "Anodized Aluminium". Once I do this, changing from the material's default colour, it ruins everything.

 

This is the point at which things go wrong. Hope that helps.

A lot of the solutions I find seem to be for an older version of Revit. They talk about a "Replace" button - but it doesn't seem to apply to 2012.

Remember, you may call it aluminum, and you may have aluminum set properly in your materials, but if that material is not assigned to the element, it will be default grey.

How could I check this? I have clicked on the wall > Edit Type > Edit Structure > clicked on the 15mm aluminium cladding material (I duplicated and edited earlier) on the exterior side of the wall > and I look through the tabs "Graphics" and "Appearance". I don't seem to see any conflict, but like I said, I am a beginner and it could be a simple mistake.
