I need to make a wall type for Kalwall. Now i opened and edited and existing curtain wall type so that i can have horizontal and vertical lines in the wall to appear as kalwall does. now i have the grid setup on the wall but im trying to edit the materials in the wall to make the wall appear more white, right now it appears blueish, because of the glass. Am i trying to make this wall type the right way? and if so what do i have to do to edit the material settings for the curtain wall? if not someone please inform me of a easier way to do this, im fairly new using revit.

You need to pick a panel in the curtain wall (tabbing works to select). I would then duplicate the panel type name it Kalwall panel, and then assign a Revit material to it called Kalwall (duplicate an existing material works well) then assign an Accurender texture to the new Kalwall material that matches the properties of your Kalwall. (translucent white plastic might be a good choice to start with). Then change all your curtain wall panels to the new Kalwall type. (in 3D select everything and filter down to curtain panels).
