Hello!  How can I add my OWN materials to a project?  Revit's materials seem to be a little limited, so I would like to add some of my OWN hand-picked materials to the materials file.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jacqueline

Not sure if that is what I was asking...sorry Smile  Here is my real question...I have a nice oxidized metal jpg that I would like to use for a Revit project,  but Revit's metals are too simple.  How to I get MY jpg to appear as a material under the "metals" section?

Not like you want i believe, you can copy JPGS to the materials folders but you don't have those "Balls" with you material (jpeg) in one of them...

Yes, I tried to copy & paste the jpg to the materials already, and I didn't see the materials wrapped in the "balls," as you said.  When that happens, the jpg doesn't show up in the materials when I am trying to add/edit material composition to an object. 

(In other words, it shows up when you paste i to the Revit "data" folder to get to the materials, but does not appear as an option when you search materials through the actual project.)
