"I am a student in The Art Institute of Las Vegas and I'm making a project with Revit. I have found several families in Revit City, some of them I've been able to change the materials and colors. But there are some that I can't make any changes on. Do you know how I could make changes, for example a single banquet I found, I would like to change the color of the seating, and a flower vase, when its being rendered the flower is in default color, how could i change the color of the flower?"
Thanks for the question Julie! Julie is an Interior Design student utilizing Revit. It is great to have Revit questions come from different perspectives of the fields. Julie also informed me that she was the President of her school's ASID (American Society of Interior Designers).
I created a little video to explain the very basics of setting up rendering materials.
- Editing Materials
- Creating New Materials
- Adding Rendering Materials
- Relationship Between Project and Family materials
Here are the two (low quality) renderings I made during the video:
Rendering 1 - No Materials
Rendering 2 - With Materials
P.S. I would not suggest using those families she downloaded. I find the flower hideous and the chair could be made much better.
