I cannot seem to get self illumating objects to work. I have chosen the category, then checked the Add button. but it does not seem to keep the setting. What are the settings to get a self illuminating material?

At the moment we do not support self-illuminating materials of Revit. However we plan to support them in future versions.

as a follow on to this, is there any way to get light bulbs or gas mantles to actually emit a glow themselves (aswell as projecting the light)

can this be done within sketchup or the editor or viewer? the manual does not go into this as far as I can see.

Hi Nick,

You should pick light bulb material and increase luminosity. We've added sel-illuminating materials support since the last time discussion happened in this thread.

Hope this helps.
