Question - when I download   Components from the site - cars, plant  Cryingespecially blocks), the  first rendered it o.k - the colors is nice but the second render, the component becomes gray without colors. Why is this and what should be done to the phenomenon does not repeat itself?

Thank you

There are no blocks in Revit.

Colors are controlled through your object styles tab.  If colors change from render to render (assuming light and shadow are the same), then YOU changed something!

 

You need to edit the family and examine what materials are applied to each component.  For families with CAD imports, the colors are controlled by CAD layer names.  Find what those are and change them in your project to what you want.

Are you using a different view for the second rendering? Are your cars in a different phase? If so set your view phase to show complete and see if that fixes it.

Thanks for your answer. I did't do nothing. I just download a car, for example, I put him on my project, I made a render/ In the first render it was grate. beautiful colors. In the second - the color were gone and the car has been gray. I did't touched the color or the object. It's happened a lot when I download component of DWG - they comes like a block. Thanks

best thing to do in avoid bringing in DWG content. You'll never be able to adjust it if you want. Did you maybe do a 'purge unused' at some point? I've had sketchUP models loose their materials during a purge but my fault for using sketchUP models. Just stick with Revit content, there is more than enough on here to complete your scene, if not, make your families.

check your materials.  All the materials with numbers like 05-011-213 for their names are typically imported materials.  You may have to go into the render image and make sure your RGB's are right.

For me, when I download a rfa file, I will see whether the model created in Revit or imported from some other software (if you hover your mouse cursor above the model, or click it, the information bar at the left bottom corner of Revit window will show as: Category of the family: Imported Symbol CMIIW)

 

If that rfa was imported (created not in Revit), go to Manage tab > Object Styles > Model Object tab, under category column is the layer used in that model (if it's from AutoCAD), and you can try to change the material under Material column to check what layer is used to model what model). After you load this family to project, Object Style is the place to check and change the material for that model..

 

Hmm.. I have question to other Revit user.. is there any possibilities to link the material in Object Style to Revit material and finishes parameter?
