I'm new to Revit and am not exactly familiar with how families work yet. However, I have applied a material to a new family I have created. It shows up in the family window/editor when its on realistic view, but when I try to load it into a project, it only shows a default gray material on the family. What step am I missing to get the materials to show up in the project itself? Any help would be much appreciated!
