I am using Revit 2013 student version. I have successfully attached a decal on one of my walls and managed to show a realistic mode of the decal in my elevation. I would like to remove the decal lines (rectangle with x inside) but I am struggling to do this.
I have done some research on the web and so far, found out that I need to select the decal lines (or cross), right click and choose Override Graphics in View > By Element, and check Transparent. The problem is, my system does not display the option for Transparent; I am only given the boxes for Visible and Half-tone.
Solved! Go to Solution.
it is not clear for me what you do you want...is that something like in my attached image ?... or something else....
Why do you say that the X appears on your image ? It appears only when selected...
If you want to change the border of the decal :
Modify/Generic Models>Override Graphics > Override by Element > View-Specific Element Graphics >Projection Lines > change Weight, Color , Pattern.
If you want to change the image , then go to Manage > Decal Types >select the de Decal from the list and you have there a lot of settings
Thank you for your reply and SO sorry for this late reply (a year later!). I suddenly found myself not having to use Revit after I posted my query last year, Now I'm back!
I attach three files:
1. Apple: the black rectangle around the apple is being formed by the decal. These are the lines I want to get rid of.
2. Apple projections lines: I tried what you suggested but I couldn't find a setting for a transparent line. I tried using white but it just cut the leaf part of the apple at the top.
3. Apple properties: I thought it may be useful to attach an image of the decal properties here.
I hope you're still able to help, i.e., after a year of my silence!
