I've created some relatively simple sketchup models to use as exterior cladding elements (precast frames, screens, and architectural articulation elements, etc...) and imported them to my revit model.

I created these by exporting the revit model into sketchup, drawing the components onto the existing revit frame, matching the component origins to the origin of the revit model, and the importing into revit using "origin to origin." The geometry is placed perfectly and looks great, except it all has the characteristic "sketchup tan" color and renders a flat grey. I have tried importing directly into the model, into a component (create in place), and into an in-place family, and I still can't figure out how to apply a different material. I've even changed the materials under settings>>object styles>>imported objects and this has no effect.

 somebody please? any ideas??

 I also created an external family and tried to assign a material perameter but i don't know how to get this generic model family placed in my building model... help on that?

 cheers

figured it out... went back to look at aalmerico's post again and realized that you can expand the imported objects catagories, and have to apply materials to their subcatagories to get it to work. Thanks! awesome tool
