Some elements turn red

Hi,

Some of my elements have turned red in 3D. The material colour is red. However I cant get rid of the red colour. It affects several types of elements such as wall, slab, door, window...

If I copy a red element the copy get's its proper colour.

AC14 latest hotfix and Teamwork.

Anyone?

Cheers and be careful out there...friday 13th...

Two possibilities:

Someone else whose TW color is red has reserved those elements and you have your workspace set to show colors by owner/reservation...

Or, you or someone else used the Markup palette/functionality to 'tag' those elements as markup entries. Markup entries show the markup color (default red = redlining) until they are re-tagged as 'normal' entries using the markup palette.

Thanks Karl!
It was Mark up Entries from EcoDesigner. A purely unintentional thing...haha...now my dull grey is back and I'm happy.
First off we were going to export .vut to VIP Energy but the HVAC consultant have changed their mind and will use IDA ICE instead so we'll just send the the IFC-model (however IDA is not the most IFC savvy program out there...).
Best regards,
Mats

I might be a little behind on this particular discussion, but I encountered what I assume to be the same or a similar problem, and came up with a different solution that might help others out there.

In the menu Document>Set Renovation Filter>Renovation Filter Options I noticed that an option was erroneously set to "override". I switched it to "show", and it appeared properly in 3D.

Hope this helps.

We have the problem in AC14. It's an on/off thingy...

We did a test clash detection and now we have a huge list of mark-up items. How can we get rid of these?
