hi all! I'm new to revit and am a freshman in arch school. i'd like to make a facade like this (http://construction.com/CE/CE_images/2012/Aug_Extech_7.jpg) after research i know this is called "polycarbonate", 

i want to use this as my facade, so that light can emits through the translucent wall and looking cool at night, how can i make it? i know how to import an image as a new material and adjust those translucent thing but i just can't make it, anyone got this kind of material photo and experience in designing such facade? 

 

thanks a lot! 11 days to my final review......!!

This is just a curtainwall with translucent panels instead of glass.  Read about curtainwalls in your HELP.

You will just make a material and add Self Illimination to it in the Material Browser>"Your Material">Appearance>Self Illumination... if you want it to be a little transparent you can also set that in the same location.

thanks for the reply, but how can i make a curtain wall *translucent* but not completely transparent?

by the way i have tried loads of the material photos online and none of them work.....

how to add those vertical lines onto the curtain wall??

sorry for asking so many questions! i really want a translucent facade as the photo shows....

In the material of the curtail wall panel you can set the transparency.  Those vertical lines are girts.. most likely a C Channel that you would place as a beam in Revit.
