Is there a way to adjust the colors of windows in the REALISTIC, CONSISTENT COLORS, SHADED...in the graphic display options on the lower left of the screen in REVIT 2013 when displaying/plotting? I have enclsoed two screen shots the top is where the display option is selected to REALISTIC. Note the color of the windows are white. I want to change those to an off gray. The screen shot at bottom is where the display option is selcted to CONSISTENT COLORS. Note the windows are BLUE. I want to change those to GRAY.

 

Any suggestions out there?

 

Thanks in Advance!

I don't think it will show up in these quick renderings. What you need to do is open that specific window family, duplicate it (so you don't mmess up the original) and then change the color of the glass under it's materials properties. That should solve your problem when you

apply the full rendering for sure, and I think even the quick rendering/realistic will apply it accordingly.

Hope that helps...let us know if you need more help.

tectacoma,   I'm sorry but the advice you gave is incorrect.  You can change the material in a family and that will work but only if that material does not already reside in the project.  THE PROJECT RULES!  One of the powers of Revit is being able to control all materials from the project level,  Mongoose - Find out what materials are used by your family then change that material in the project.

WWWHub, I'm not sure where I'm incorrect but I'm always appreciative to get corrected. Reading your response is pretty much the same what I said, except that I used the window that's already in the project wihtout loading a new material. I just followed my own steps and got what I thought was the result he was looking for with a window that was already in the project.

Please correct me if I'm wrong...any help is always appreciated. Maybe I'm not seeing the forest due to all the trees in front of me. Winking

Thanks for feed WWWHub

WWHub is saying that you do not need to go into the family to change the material.  All you need to do is find what the material in your project and change it there.  If you have a material called Glass in you family and a material called Glass in your project it doesnt matter what you change the family material to because the material will take on the properties of the Glass material in the project.
