I have modeled siding on some walls using reveals.  The dimensions are accurate, using Hardie Plank as a product.  The effect works well, except when rendered.  The texture is so slight that it is almost invisible.  Anyone know how to make it more visible without going (way) beyond the actual depth of the product?

Shaded and rendered images attached.  You will notice that in the rendered version, the siding edges are invisible, except that their relections appear in the (aluminum foil) metal roofing below.

 I did try increasing the depth of the profile.  These images were made with the siding at 4x actual depth (1 1/4").

You can create that effect with a simple "Texture", no need to use reveals....

I don't have an easy way to modify the color of an image to use as a texture.  If the wall itself has the profile, I can modify the color of the wall surface easily by changing the material's color.

I agree with Typhoon; I've tried modelling siding accurately and it just bogs down the model.

Have you tried applying a "bump" pattern to your material instead? I've created some custom bump patterns similar to what I attached that I use for different siding patterns.

This is one that I did recently by using a color and turning the image fade down and the bump up on a standard material. I was very happy with the results.

Johnzo,

Thanks for the advice.  I'm afraid I cannot duplicate your results, even when matching your settings.  Image attached.

I'm willing to take a little bog in the render time, if the results are right.  I'm disappointed that Revit cannot accurately render the elements when truly modeled, or even when exaggerated.

Choose the right texture and change the color like you want.

Render in High quality 300 DPI and check if you have the result you want.

Typhoon,

The key may be that the Generic - Color is white and the hue is selected using the Tint Color variable near the bottom of the editor.  My dialog box does not have this, nor does my dialog box look like yours.  Which version of Revit are you using.  I'm still on 2012.

Typhoon:

I need to know if this solution is available to me.  From which version of Revit was the screen shot taken?

Thank you,

Was in 2013 and now in 2012....

A good "texture" can produce the effect you want without increase the file size.

Typhoon,

Attached is my best rendering with that method.  As you can see, the siding is barely visible (or not visible).  I have tried meddling with the degree of light and shadow, etc. to try to enhance the contrast and visibility of the siding, without success.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Just to ask a dumb question, but did you use a good hi-res setting while doing all the test images you said in the above post? it seems to me typhoon has his settings dialed in, and maybe youre settings are set diffy or something.
