The Vehicles downloaded from this website when rendered on revit all seem to come out gray ( or at least the decent ones). does anyone know who to change to colour of these models?

 This is From a Post by Tom Dorner

You have to figure out what materials have been assigned to each part of the car and then in your project assign the texture and color you want for that material. Since you didn't create the car, what I do is open it up in the family editor and figure out what the material categories and assignments are. If I can live with the creators methodoligy, I make note of them, if not, I make my own material categories and assignments. If you change anything in the family, be sure to save and re-load into your project. Once in the project go to "settings" "materials" and make sure you have a texture from the Accurender library assigned to each material in the car. This is one of my pet peeves of families is the unkown materials being assigned. Hope this helps.

here is the link

PS If the car is an RPC car then you have to live with whatever color it is. Check out the whole RPC collection at:
