I have a new project we started about three weeks ago. I have to present the schematic plans tomorrow. I recently noticed a graphics issue for any view that has a color filled region or color scheme in an area plan. When you first open the view, all is well. As soon as you start zooming in, you get white artifacts from the model elements (doors, walls, etc.). Please see attached. Any thoughts on a solution?

**Edit**

I have noticed that it only occurs where there are no floors or where the floors are turned off. Once you add the floors or turn the floors on, the issue goes away.

 

Thanks!

Try turning off hardware acceleration ... under the Revit R dropdown - options - graphics.

 

You don't say what Revit and what updates.  You should be update 2 on 2014.

Good point. Revit 2014 but only update 1. My administrator is in the process of installing update 2. I don't have permission. I will reply back and let everyone know if that fixes it.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks!

Update your graphics card (only if it hasn't been done already) and then turn the hardware acceleration back on.  I just had this issue last week and after I did this, it went away.

**UPDATE**

I am still experience this issue, after doing the following:

 

  • Confirming that my NVIDIA Quadro 600 graphics card has up to date drivers
  • Confirming that my Revit 2014 Revit Building has service pack 2 installed
  • Hardware acceleration is off
  • My .net Framework 4.5 is installed (per this: Revit 2014 Graphics Issue)

 

Running Windows 7 Professional and the above graphics card/Revit combination. Anti-Aliasing is off and Optimized View Navigation is on.

Anyone else out there have similar issues with a fix?

Thanks.

After re-reading..... why not have your floors on?

Floors are room bounding elements and that may be causing some of your issues along with lower level walls that come up to the level of the view rather than being attached to the bottom of the floor.

I tried that. Folks who are using the presentation drawings don't want to see the slab edge at door openings. IF we leave the floors on, then we have to use the linework tool to hide all the boundaries of the floor slab...unless you know something I don't. I am all ears.

Thanks for the quick response.

My floors are always edited to step out at the doors to the threshold.  But you can under VG / Floors - turn off slab edges.

Thanks. I have noticed that check box for slab edges, but have never got it to do what I thought it should do. My understanding is that it only turns off any slab edge conditions that you've added using the Slab Edge tool under Floors. It doesn't actually turn off the boundary of a floor slab in plan view.

For some reason, I just turned off all three options under graphics, restarted Revit, then turned them all back on, and restarted Revit...it works. Whatever it was, it seems to have resolved itself, oddly enough.

 

Thanks again.

Ahh, the old "glitchy" lines in the background.  This was prevelent in 2013 too.

Let me guess, only one floorplan view is doing this?  Recreate the view when this happens again and delete the one that's glitching out.  

Or update Revit and restart it.

I tend to find duplicate with detailing is faster though.  Winking

Oh yeah... I've been getting the same "white lines". Something I've noticed is that they're more likely to appear if you have an "underlay" turned on in the problem plan view. Maybe this is your problem... worth toggling your "underlays" off to see if it does anything. I've also discovered that using the translucent override for filled regions also creates these lines sometimes. Found it useful to limit the use of transluscent filled regions unless it's really imprortant. Good luck.  Dan3d
