    Default Linked Model is showing as Halftoned

    Hi all! We're working on an architectural model with a linked structural model and that linked model is showing up in halftone. Does anyone know why this might be?
    I've checked all display settings but nothing seems to work.
    Thanks in advance!

    Did you check to see if you have it checked off for halftone in your Revit Link settings under VG (or view template if you're using one)?

    Ted,
    Yes, that box is unchecked. I also confirmed that nothing in the display settings is set to halftone.

    Are there previous phases either in your model or the structural model?

    I had this happen to me today. The MEP linked model was set to existing and all the lighting on the reflected ceiling plan was gray. Once I changed the visibility of the linked model to New Construction it wasn't half toned any longer.

    @andipiper: In addition to what @CAtDiva suggested, also check the phase mapping of the structural link. Even if the objects in the structural link are modeled in what seems to be the correct ("new construction") phase, if that phase is mapped to a phase that occurs previous to the phase of your view, and the overrides you have set for "existing" elements makes them gray, that could be why the structural elements show up that way.
