    I love the elevations at the beginning of the thread, and i like the ones later in the thread too. But it really feels like the tail wagging toe dog to modify how Curtain wall gets modeled (going level to level splice means the model isnt always going to be accurate), and swapping system glazing components for families adds other unwanted burdens, all JUST to create that graphical effect. They look great, but i really dont think i would go down that road, except for one off presentations (personally). And if they are one off presentations, id just assume do it in another piece of software.

    Are you using the new glass assets? I ran into the same bug as I was updating all our materials to 2019 asset definitions, and have reported it. Got the response that at was reproducible and would get fixed.
    Try changing to a pre 2019 glass asset.

    I agree with you there Aaron, it is a lot of work and I will need to change the way I work right now and for making a pretty picture once a year, maybe, that is not worth it at all.
    So, it is nice to know how it works for sure, but I will be a lot faster with Photoshop for example.

    Quick test in Photoshop and I like that even better, and it is a 1 minute job without the need to change the way I work
    So if I for whatever reason need to mkae these images for a project, I know what I would use.

    How did you do that in Photoshop that only took 1 minute? I apparently need to brush up (no pun) on my Photoshop skills.

    Export the elevation with glazed elements overridden to a wildly unique colour, colour picker to create mask, new layer from, gradient fill, boom.

    Yep that's about it. Skipped the wildly unique color, but it is better to do it with it if you have colors in your building that are a close match to your glass color. And if you really zoom in to that images, there are a few flaws, so it might take 5 minutes to get it really good

    If we could export material ID like Enscape that’d do it without the need to swap materials
