hi, I am looking for a plug in for revit to update my material catalog from a fisical tile company catalog into revit, and also our own material finishes catalog... I have like 500 materials that I want to upload into revit and make a template, but the traditional revit method to make material one by one is very painful... do you know a tool or a method to make this fast? ("notepad" fast or something?) Thanks in advance

Open the project that you want to be your template file and the project that has the materials you want to transfer.  Once both projects are open go to you template file and under the Manage tab click Transfer Project Standards and in the dialog box uncheck everything except Materials then simply hit OK

Thank you, but what is the fastest method someone could use to make new materials? 

 

I may not have explained properly on my last post.... 

 

what I am intendig to accomplish is to make 500 new materials fast and from scratch, I dont care about the textures because there will be not for renders, its for 2d plan views and isometric views basically... what would you use in a case like this to make new materials on a very productive way and not with the slow and unproductive revit material manager. 

 

If I make this revit material database I will be able to save a lot of time for myself on my current job.. I am designer of Showrooms for a tile company, and I have to specify a lot of showrooms that require the same product always, thats why it is convenient for me to have a huge library so I wont need to make materials each time I make a single showroom (I want to spend my productive time concentrated on design matters and not in material configuration matters).

 

Thanks for your suggestions and have a nice day.

Hugo

(I will only put a name to the material, a keynote, a hatch pattern and a shading color--- to every material) TNKS

The only way to make a new material is to create each one separately
