Greetings. I'm trying out the Beta 4 plugin on Revit 2011 x64 with Indigo 2.6.1 x64. Maybe I'm just missing something, but I can't render masses. I've tried Googling for any information about this issue, but haven't been able to find anything. This would be a deal breaker because our site models are all masses. Fortunately, Toposurfaces do render. Is this just a limitation of the current plugin? I have done/discovered the following:
- Neither In-Place Masses nor Conceptual Mass families work.
- "Show Mass" is on and Mass is checked under Visibility/Graphics.
- I am using the default "Default Form" material for the masses, but with transparency turned off.
- With all the same settings, masses render fine with Revit's built-in renderer.
A workaround would be to use the Model by Face tools to turn the masses into walls and roofs, but that would be time-consuming and make our already heavy Revit projects much heavier.
I've also been experiencing another issue when I try to export a fairly large site model made up of mass families:
A problem occurred with the scene:
SceneLoaderExcep: Model tried to use undefined mesh 'RevitMesh'. (In element 'model', around line 23, column 5)
Thanks for any help or insight you can provide.
