Hey, is it possible to make floors transparent in revit 9.1? I've been messing around but cannot figure it out, or if it is even possible.  Idealy there is just a section i want to make transparent.

Thanks,

Chris

its been awhile since in 9.1 but can you go into the floor material and make it transparent there? If you want just a section transparent I'd suggest making 2 different floors.

Just make a new floor type and set the material to glass- alter the transparency / colour settings to suit.

 Or....

 

Use the split face command to create a seperate face on your existing floor, and then "paint" this face with "Glass" material (using the Pain command"

Thank you, that worked, but unfortunately it changed the transparency for both floors, not the one, any idea how to just change the transparency for one floor without changing the others?

Yep- you need to create a new floor type- ie pick the origianal floor, bring up it's Element properties, hit "Duplicate" and give it a new name. Also: Remember to do the same with the floor material (ie duplicate it and rename- before you change the material definition (ie to glass) itself- you can do this within the materials editor.

 Let us know how you get on.

 Regards,

Ian
