Model doesn't hold transparencies

If we export a 3D Model from Revit to design review, is there a way to make Design review hold transparencies or angle of view?  Anytime I save and close and then reopen the file it returns to the default of the 3D Model.  It would make it easier to communicate with the client if they didn't necessarily have to recreate the view or turn items on/off/transparent.  The only way seems to be to take a snapshot but the defeats the versatility of exporting a 3D model.


We also have had a lot of problems if we export a Revit camera view, when it comes into Design Review the view looks nothing like the camera view in Revit.  The only work around we have found so far for this is to just print the view as a pdf.

I appreciate the help.

Thank you for your question.


In Design Review, you can use the Save View function to hold your views. Please press F1 key in Design Review to open the Help document, and go to this section to learn more: "Tour Design Review > Use Palettes > Views Palette".


Please let me know if this can solve you issue.
