Rendering a floor plan with shadows

Anonymous

The problem is that the sun does not only shine through the windows. It is necessary that the rays enter the room only through the windows. To make the correct render of the plan.

This is possible, but requires some faking with special surfaces.

Here is a detailed tutorial in Russian how to do this with a wall. You just need to swap out the wall idea for your ceiling or the fictional plane that cuts your floorplan. If, like me, you don't speak Russian: you can have youtube translate and add subtitles.

Thanks for the answer. I meant a little different. We need to render the room on top but the end rays pass through the wall. I used a 3D section.

You can use different, more advanced rendering engines. For example Maxwell Render. It has the feature, that let you to cut the model without affecting light distribution:
