Is it possible in Revit to do custom shape graffiti? In shape of rhomb, for example.

In order to obtain such an effect use Decals.

  1. In Photoshop create two   drawings of your graphity (the same dimensions): one colored and in the desired shape and secondly a Blak and White mask in rombic shape - white will be totaly transparent and white will be totaly opaque  ( greys will be semitransparent....)
  2. in Revit : Insert > Decal > Decal Types > Create New Decal - enter a name ..Settings > Source - chose the first drawing ( the colored one) and then go to bottom and Cutouts > Image File - choose the rombic mask created in step 1 - OK
  3. Now, Decal > Place Decal - place on a Face your new created decal....
