Graphics Acceleration

I have been using the Graphics Acceleration, and I like the fact that in 3d I see my model with the materials.  However, when I use color schemes, my color schemes that I set up for floor finishes extend into my walls (i am assuming that the wall centerline is my actual bounding area for the particuliar room).  Once I turn of the graphics acceleration the color scheme is then cut back at the finish surface of the wall.  I noticed that when I went into the options of Revit and selected the Graphics tab, I had a warning in regards to the driver, I downloaded and installed the recommended/suggested driver.  I was hopeful that I would get the best of both worlds of having the hardware acceleration not checked and able to see materials and having the color scheme of how I wanted.  Is there some configuration I should be setting up in Control Panel?  The attached files HA-off are with hardware acceleration not checked,HA-on.pdf is with hardware acceleration checked.  My desire is that the color scheme patterns are cleaned to the wall surface and realistic materials shown in my file.  Any thoughts are welcome.

Hi MS_jkimc65

What graphics card/driver are you using?

The view looks similar to a wireframe visual style.

I've attached a sample RVT, if you open this and check the view Level 1. Does the view appear as it does on my end like this:

Or like this (what only occurs when I set the visual style to wireframe):

If the issue doesn't occur with the file I posted, and is specific to your own project, could copy/paste the wall/floor to a new blank project and send the non-sensative RVT.

If the issue is still occuring after updating your driver, you could try installing the latest driver to see if it resolves the issue even though the driver isn't tested and listed on the certfied drivers page.
