Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating self-illuminating materials, part of BIM Tools Weekly.
- [Instructor] What I'd like to do this week…is see how we can get a material to be self-illuminate.…I'm going to jump into a project I have already defined.…So, under projects, let's go open.…I'm going to browse where I'm keeping my exercise files,…or, again, you can open up any project you happen to be in.…Let's click open.…Now, what I'd like to do is put a nice little soffit…around the edge of this wall here, but this soffit's…going to have an uplight glow to it.…Instead of putting a component in, such as a strip light,…we're just going to create an in-place family,…then apply a material to it that is self-illuminating.…
The first thing I want to do, however,…is go to our south elevation.…You may remember how we put the counter heighth,…I want to do a soffit height one as well.…So, I'ma right-click on the reference plane,…and I'ma create similar.…On my draw panel, let's click pick lines.…For the offset, let's go eight feet.…Hit escape a few times,…select this reference plane,…let's call it soffit height, and hit enter.…

Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?
A: We publish a new tutorial or tutorials for this course on a regular basis. We are unable to offer a Certificate of Completion because it is an ever-evolving course that is not designed to be completed. Check back often for new movies.
