    Raster Image in Revit

    I would like to import an image in 3D model space and have it visible without the need to render. It seems I have hit a brick wall though. Anyone have a creative idea on how to accomplish this? Or is it just verboten?

    Decal? Is Realistic acceptable?

    If you dont want to render, you need to make it an Image in an Appearance Asset (definitely works without rendering), or use a Decal (not sure, but if Steve says it works im sure it works)... and set it the view to Realistic mode.

    A decal will show up in Realistic view graphics without rendering. The trouble is the materials for most other things don't look very good in realistic. Use Enscape?

    I noticed that. We do use Endscape, yes, so I'll check that out.
