Hi, I'm an architecture student and relatively new user to revit and I wanted to use 'coated glass' (not entirely sure thats the correct term for it) in one of my projects and I'm wondering how I would achieve that. Do I change the transparency? If so, how?


To avoid confusion included a picture of what I mean:


I'd greatly appreciate any tips towards solving this,


thank you.

Hi Alex.


It really depends on the version of Revit you are using ? Asuming that you´re on Revit 2011 here:


Create a new material based on the default "Frosted White" Glass marerial.

Change the "Roughness" option to aprox. 0,20

And you should get a result like this.
