Add a gradient background to a 3D view in Revit

Did you know that in Revit, you can add a background gradient color to a 3D view?. The gradient will be a blend between the horizon color and the sky or ground color.

Some things to note:
• The changes to the background can also be saved as a view template.
• If you export the view to a 3D DWF file, the gradient background will not be included as part of the export.
• When you print a 3D view with a gradient background, you can only print using raster processing. To print the view using vector processing, you must first turn off the gradient background.
