Save your 3d view as a 3d document, you can then add a gradient fill as a sky in the 3d document view.

See below. I've also used the round slab trick. No rendering, just a 3d document view with vectorial hatching and shaded materials option turned on. ... 6.064.html#1199520
Thank you for your replies.

I have been able to create a gradient fill in a 3D document however the result is a poor looking building compared to the 3D view in which the building looks quite good.

The downside with the 3D view is that I can not put the sky gradient in or the earth Gradient in.

The other problem with the radial Gradient for the earth is that I can not make the circular pattern of the gradient oval to create a 3D look.

I am still interested in how the gradient fill was applied to a slab. This would be very useful.

Thank you.

3D Document - image quality not so good compared to 3D view
