Sorry if this is a double post, but I couldn't find any answers in the forum that were helping.  I have Revit Arch 2009 and some of my materials i made in Sketchup are grey.  I went into the "object styles" and mapped images/colors to the correct layers of the sketchup file...but they still seem to be grey.  i messed with the "phase filter" and "phase" settings, but still with no luck.  Than again, im not exactly sure how the phase filter works...im still a newbie to Revit.  Thanks for your help,

yiliboxer

Hey Typhoon:

Another question for you... in your video when you click to change a material and click "apply" it instantly shows you if that material was applied or not.  When I do it it does nothing and i have to render after each time to see if the material was applied or not.  Is there a setting you can change so I can see if the material is applied in just the line weights?

Thanks ahead of time,

Chad

It's because in 2009 you must see (like in the image) if you have check the button "Shading-Use Render Appearance For Shading" don't show the color because revit change by default the Grey color, but when you choose the material (texture, and you pick in the apply the model change to the color of the material...

Hi lpnoble, this is an explanation I did for a guy who sent me an e-mail a few weeks ago about this topic, hope it helps you too.....It works with .3ds models but with sketchup models as well.

Before nothing, sometimes you'll notice that not all .3ds files can be imported into ACAD because of their geometry. So what I do is that I always import the .3ds models into Sketchup Pro (or open your .skp models there) and then I export them as .dwg files.Once I've opened the .dwg in ACAD, I begin with the second step which is to "paint" the objects by colors depending on their "category' (blue for the glass, green for the leaves, brown for the  branches and so on). Well, after you've "painted" your object, I proceed to scale it and then ALWAYS move it to the point 0,0,0----check this in all views-----purge and save. Now you are ready to import it into Revit (make sure to create a family depending on the object you are importing, i.e. entourage for cars, planting for trees, etc). In Settings--Materials..., you'll notice that all materials are with names like Render Material 123,123,123 for example, so they are the colors that you previously put in ACAD to the object and now you'll assign with materials. Go to Render Appearance and choose the material you want. Now you are able to render it.....
