My problem is hard to explain so I have attached my current family that I'm working on. Basically I have created a DWG in Sketchup, imported into Revit to create a family. Now I am in the process of assigning Revit materials to my layers. Though for some reason when I apply textures to the layers, the materials are stretched out horizontally, presumably infinately. This only seems to be a problem for one axis. 

If any of you clever people can help me asap, that would be great!

First, the image doesn't tell us anything because you don't point out what you are talking about.

Second, why would you ever do this is sketchup?  Everything I see in your image can be native Revit - Far easier.

Sorry I should have been clearer, my issue is with how the material appears on the front facade. 

 

Yes I know it probabaly would have been quicker doing it in Revit but I am still a beginer really and can make things on Sketchup far quicker. This is just a simple model of a building ajacent to our site.

I assume by front you mean the side with windows?  You need to be clear in this profession.

The image you post is very small.  It appears that it may be brick but I can't tell.  If it is, we can't see if it is "stretched". Perhaps a better image would help. 

 

Revit's materials are repeated based on the material's image size.  You can read about materials in your help.

Yeah I meant the sides with the windows. I have attached this photo here which I think clearly shows the problem. Both walls have the same material applied to them and are part of the same layer. You can clearly see the facade with the windows, the brick texture is being stretched. I've looked at all the parameters in the material editor and can't find anything that fixes the problem.

OK, Now we can see what you are talking about. 

I have never done what you are doing so I can only guess here.  Revit thinks the form is one form and you are seeing the end of that material rather than a face.  You may have to put each plane on a different layer in order for the material to be "faced" correctly.

 

...so much for easier to do....

My students often have this problem with furniture and other interior elements that they've exported from SketchUp via DWG. Putting the offending face on a different layer seems to work consistently. Each bad face needs to have it's own layer, though, so a complicated piece of furniture with many bad faces could be a bit cumbersome. Also seems to work if the import is inside a family, although if you have a lot of layers, it's easier to track them down in Revit if they're not inside a family - they get list by inserted element, rather than under the Imports in Families category.
