    I can't get objects behind glass to export to a dwg file

    I'm trying to export an elevation view to a dwg file but when I open the dwg file in autocad none of the objects behind glass are visible. In my Revit file I have the glass transparency on my windows and curtain wall panels turned to 100% so in my Revit view all of the objects behind the windows are visable but when I open the exported dwg file only the exterior of my view is visible.

    I checked my visibiliy graphics to make sure everything was turned on but I'm new to Revit so aside from that I'm not sure of what to adjust.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    It is expected behaviour. Yes, the "glass" seems transparent in the revit file, however when exported, it is the extent of the glass face that is replicated, but treated as a solid ie no transparent material applied.
