I am creating a MEP walkthrough showing the as built cable trays, elec equipment, mechanical eqpt, pipings, ducts, etc. I want it to show in realistic mode without the edges (if possible rendered walkthrough mode). I already have assigned the filter for a cable tray network that is in actual, red in color. In Shaded 3d view, the color shows but in realistic mode, it doesn't! I can assign material in the Object styles dialogue but it assigns the material to all of the cable tray. I only need certain cable trays to be in color red.

I thought of editing the family and giving them Material parameters but I can only edit the fittings and not the Cable tray run! I also tried the Paint tool to no avail. 

I downloaded the Hoffman cable trays from autodesk to solve this problem temporarily but I really want to know how to add materials to cable trays. So please shed me some light if you know.

Thank you so much!

Instead of assigning the material, try painting it.

I tried to paint it. It shows in the Coarse/Medium Detail but not in Fine Detail.
