Transparent Fills

Postby David Howe » 30 Nov 2006, 11:19

Transparent fills that are actually transparent ie if I draw a filled drafting shape to highlight an area of interest on a section (or elevation or plan) I would like to still be able to see the model!

TRANSPARENT FILL ie an area of solid colour (not hatch) where I can still see the MODEL. I checked the AUGI site and this has made it to the Revit 10 wish list.

I can't really respond to this, but if you hold your breath, you MIGHT make it until you can do it....

I agree. There is a need for setting the transparency of a solid fill colour.
At the moment we have to export the drawing and do it in Illustrator :(

This feature is used frequently to tone down the surrounding areas while highlighting the subject site/project.

My understanding is that you make the solid fill pattern and apply to the plan/elevation/detail. (looks solid and no model visible)
Then Right click the fill and under 'override graphics in view' than 'by element' click ghost surface. (2012)
Works a treat. :D

The fill region type parameter "Opaque" & "Transparent" work just fine to make a solid fill look transparent. You can see model & detail items underneath it.(Revit 2013)
Another option is to use the override attributes and set the "Transparency" value to anything other than '0'.
