I have been importing projects of various scales to test how the materials from revit come in.

Currently, I am having an issue that every time I bring in a model, one of the faces [ie. sides of a wall] is entirely transparent and the other has the correct material associated to it.

However, I have noticed this is only typical of interior surfaces. Is there a way that I can export/import my model from Revit into Lumion and not have this issue of the surfaces being transparent?

Is there a setting that I am missing? Or an update to the bridge that helps transition materials?

I have attached a few screen shots of the model. The model is taken directly from Revit without any modifications.

I have a demo version. We are trying to determine if it is a viable option to purchase for our office. So I have nothing to register.

Not sure if you can still help or not, but any advice would be great.

Hi ak2rz, thanks for confirming this.

I can see that you're using the demo version of Lumion 5.3 which was released about a year ago.

Lumion and the Revit To Lumion Bridge plug-in have changed significantly since then, so to resolve the problem with flipped faces I would recommend that you click here to contact your local reseller and request a fully functional 7-day trial version of Lumion Pro 6.0.1.

You'll also need to click here to install the latest version of the Revit To Lumion Bridge plug-in.

Once you're done, please import the model in version 6.0.1 and let us know if this has resolved the issue.

Thanks in advance.
