Where did you obtain the symbol that is giving trouble?

Share your plan please.

or at least share a screen capture image of your ray trace.

 

No one can answer your question without more data.

Thank you sir

 

Attaching two image. I want to import my own 3d model from Sketch up or 3ds max in chief architect. In this case I have simply made a slab of 1" thickness with material definition glass. Imported it in chief architect and trying how light react with this imported object in ray trace. But I have noticed that light is not passing through the transparent glass object. What wrong I am doing.

"Glass" materials imported from Sketchup are assigned as a General Material in Chief Architect. Change the assignment to Transparent and you may get better results.
