    2015- railing balusters do not cast shadows and no glazing transparency

    Good Morning:

    Working on a project for a client doing modeling of a residential unit. They have picked a specific railing of balusters and rails. In plan, the balusters do not cast shadows while the rails do.

    Also, when using glazed curtain panels, the glazing is casting a solid shadow. I have hid the panels so that only the mullions are visible to accurately cast a shadow. Is there someway to make glass cast a semi-transparent shadow?

    Working in 2015 as that is the platform they are on.

    Thanks.

    As for the balusters not casting a shadow, I'd guess that they are unticked in the family so they don't show in plan. Check the visibility/Graphics/Overrides in the properties window.

    Wow, Totally thought the round baluster was a system family and not editable. Now I know. That did the trick...
