Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone has ever tried making this work when rendering. 

 

The main roof cladding is metal trapezoidal roofing. However, there are a few strips in the frontal of the building that has the same cladding pattern but different material (ie clear transparent roofing). On the underside of these strips are colored polycarbonate glazing (in replacement for typcial soffit).

 

I am wanting a render to show light passing thru these colored strips and producing colored beam on the walls and floor. Any idea if Revit could do this?

You would have to use something like glass with a transparency to it to achieve what you are trying to do.  If they are in panels you could have used sloped glazing

I've made the roof material as glass. However, This is how it looked like when I set the graphic option to Realistic. As you can see in the attached image, the light passes thru the semi-transparent strip but it doesnt bring thru any color from the tinted strips. Also, when I render, the image doesnt show the light passes thru the roof.

Revit won't render colored shadows which is what I believe you are trying to accomplish.
