Simply sounds like you are working in CMYK mode and have no color management instated, hence of course the on-screen rendering will be corrected based on wrong assumptions. Start by making sure you are actualyl working in RGB mode. You may also want to educate yourself about some basics of CM at least like how to use proof previews and configure default profiles.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. This is expected behavior in Illustrator if you are using a "Plastic Shading" Surface option. In addition to the suggestion shared above by @Mylenium, you may try choosing the "No Shading" Surface option. If this doesn't help, you may update your Illustrator to the latest. I hope it helps!

In order to implement that solution you don't need to upgrade.

I agree with @Monika Gause. You don't need to upgrade anything. Also, you can try one more alternative method.
Open 3D Extrude and Bevel applied effect from appearance panel. Then, click on More Options > Change the ambient Light value to 100% or play with other different light options until you get the desired result.

Please show screenshots.

Are you working in RGB or CMYK document color space?

How is color management set up?

Exactly how do you export and exactly where does it look grey? In Illustrator?

I do not wanna show screenshots cause of privacy , sorry and copyright. I had to change the whole design . I had to eliminate choosing outline and in objects tab making any change.I had to make 2D format and just simply extrude it . Adobe gives us hard time for a simple design. Jesus.

You don't need to show all of your artwork, just show, or even better share an element that has the problem. Now we are just guessing.

CC file sharing, DropBox, Google, WeTransfer...

the same problem. The shading in the white circle is perfect. And as soon as you duplicate it, the shading becomes all crazy and look so ugly. Upon that, there is no way you can reverse it. And I am using RGB color profile.

the same problem.

Actually not.

 

This thread is about Illustrator CC2017. You are using the 3D and materials effect, which didn't even exist then and which is working differently.

 

Please create a new thread and describe yoiur issue. Also: please post the AI file to Dropbox or the like.

Hi @DEEP_V,

 

We are sorry for the trouble and delayed response. As Monika said, this post issue is different from yours as new 3D features are exclusive to Ai 2022 & later. 

 

I would suggest you update your GPU drivers. Especially if you have Nvidia GPU. Also, ensure that you have selected all the settings before rendering the object in 3D & material panel, as shown in the screenshot below.

Kindly update the discussion if you still need assistance with it. We'd be happy to help.

 

Thanks & Regards,
Anshul Saini
