Hello again.  I am currently trying to make a special folding panel for use in my project.  The framing is wood and the infill is brick, roman brick to be specific.


I am trying to assign a material to the extrusions I used to create the form and the only ones available to me are default, default light source, default roof, default wall, glass and poche.  Does anyone know how I can find wood an brick?  Also, is it possible to specify the brick dimensions for the material?


If not, is there a place I can get additional revit materials?


One other question, does anyone have a link to a tutorial for family parameters?


Thanks in advance.

You need to either define the material in the family or give it a parameter so that you can assign a material in the project.

If you click on the down arrow by the help button, there is a families guide.  Click on that and follow the instructions to get the tuturial or the PDF.
