I created a Board and Batten material using a pattern I downloaded from this forum (http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Revit-Archi
The wall looks great when viewed in "Shaded". But when viewed in "Realistic", the B&B pattern disappears and is replaced by solid color.
I used the OOTB Asphal Shingles on my roof. If my view is set to "Shaded", they do not show -- all I get is solid gray. If I change the view to realistic, I get the roof shingles.
I'm currently at a loss here. Any ideas?
I'm attaching a screen shot of what the two look like.
Realistic utilizes an actual image map of what the material looks like....so if you don't have an image assigned it shows as a solid color. Be aware that any 3D Fill Patterns assigned to a material will not show up in Realistic either.
Thinking that it might be something along those lines, I downloaded an asphalt shingle pattern file (http://www.revitcity.com/downloads.php?action=view
