Tip Title:      Shadows don't follow the Topo Surface

Product:      Revit 2014

Author:         Kent Watson – Technical Consultant

 

Issue:

When you have shadows turned on they do not seem to be following the Topo Surface you have in your model

 

Cause:

This is a result of the shadows being cast on a plane such as “Ground Level” or “Level 1” 

 

Solution:

From the View Properties you need to edit the Graphics Display Options > expand out Lighting > Click the button for Sun setting and make sure the “Ground Plane at Level” options is un-ticked
