Revit Services & Support - Family containing filled or masking regions appear white in Revit realistic visual style

Published date: 2010-Apr-13
ID: TS14983836

Applies to:
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2011
Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2011
Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2011

Issue

When you enable the Revit® realistic visual style some families containing a filled or masking region appear white.

Solution

The following applies to Revit families which meet two conditions:

  1. The family has 2D filled or masking regions in the plan view of the family.
  2. The visibility of some 3D elements has been turned off for plan views.

When the above two conditions apply the family will render white in appearance for any Revit project or family view set to the realistic visual style.

To allow the family to render accurately for the realistic visual style:

  • Make all 3D elements visible for floor plan views under the element Properties > Visibility/Graphics Overrides > Edit > Family Element Visibility Settings.
  • Assign a render material for the 3D elements if they do not have one assigned under the element Properties > Material.
  • Remove the filled or masking regions from the family.
