    Doubt

    a help,
    I would like to know if it is possible to create a window with a mirrored side and a normal one

    Do you mean like a one way mirror?

      so this would be my doubt how to make a glass this way as I put it before, and what would it be like to do that way that you commented?

        You can make a material "one way glass" of course, but that's just so people know whats kind of glass is in there, but I assume you want to see it in renderings as well?

        Interesting question, I would like to see what the Revit guru's come up with for this.

          (not a guru, and certainly not when it comes to viz.)

          I looked into this once before when investigating fritting options - playing with thinly modelled veneers of materials to try and dupe Revit (and at that time, an early version of Enscape) but even with a very fine cut-out mask (to the "mirror" backer) the rendering engines understandably struggled with a convincing output - and seeing as we were due a physical mockup, put the testing to bed.

            So I just modified a window...One side was glass and the other was a mirror.

            In the rendering the glass is on the left, mirror on the right.

            It's just a quick rendering on medium.

              OK that works, but the OP is asking about one way glass I believe, so mirror on the front and normal glass on the back.
              So not left and right, but front and back.

                That is not possible. It will have to be two objects to get that effect. That's not a big deal, just keep the overall depth of the glazing the same.

                  It actually is possible, with a single item (and a since instance of paint). Because of the way "Materials" are mapped in Revit, if you make the actual material transparent, but paint one SURFACE of it with a mirror, from the front side it will be clear, and from the back, it will be mirrored.

                    Yup, he's right. I didn't think about painting. It's not something I use unless absolutely forced to.
