Hi, I have a project in which I want to have two types of glass:

1. The windows and doors glass which to be completed like mirror.2. The glass of my curtain walls to be not completed like mirror but with low transperency.

Which materials I have to edit and with what options?

In the materials dialog box select a material (glass) then click the little 'Duplicate' icon on the bottom. Then rename that duplicated material and make your changes.

 

The key to 'duplicating' a material is to duplicate the correct material. Not all materials have the same 'properties' and or variables. For example you can't make a 'masonry' material look like glass or you can't make a 'metalic' material look like wood. Make sure you 'duplicate' the right material to begin with. Try clicking on vavious standard materials and then look at their properties. Compare paint to wood to masonry to glass. All very different.

OK, I understood how to create these two materials and I know how to assign them but what are the right options to set up so the glass of one of the types to be with light transperency effect. What I mean - not complete mirror but with some ability to look true it like a real glass window?

See attached image. The options are in the material editor.

Hello everyone,

 

I am using Revit 2013 and am something of a novice.

I am trying to create semi-transparent glass.

I know one poster here said that different materials have different properties but if you look at tiles you find transparency but if you look at glass this option doesn’t exist which is bizarre.

I attach a screenshot of my material editor where I am trying to edit glass. I cannot see a transparency option. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

It could be because a you have selected Curtain Wall Spandrel Panel Glass which is not really glass. Or at least not generally transparent glass. Try clicking on the plain jane 'Glass' Material.
