3D Engraved Model Text

I had someone request this the other day and the solution is really very simple.

Simply create your model text as you would normally and set the plane so the text is embedded on the face of the wall or system family that you want to engrave the text on.

Use your join geometry tool on the wall and the model text - This makes revit cutout the model text from the wall.

Now just set the material of your model text to have a 100% transparency...

Too Easy!!

Nice! I wonder whether this works if trying to "engrave" or "cut-out" through a generic model extrusion. Worth a try as I've needed this a while back. Thanks for sharing!

Just tested this on Revit 2012 and it still works a treat. Have you set the depth of you model text to a negative value so it actually sits embedded in the wall?
