I need to insert a image to a face to a model and save it as family.

And use the created family in projects.

 

How can i do so?

 

Note: The image should be associated with the family

If you want to insert an Image (raster image) it will not work as the program says in its window message:

Maybe The following methods are good for you:

 1-Go to Modify Tab and Select the Split Face Tools.

This is used to create new materials, i have tried and i am sucessfull in doing so. Thank You for providing light on that method

 

My main intension is not to add materials, rather than that i will add image. It is ony for presentation

By adding materials my family file (rfa) size increases. So i need to add images and send across or through cloud.

 

Is there any possibility...?

Try with the "Decal" feature. It works within the project only, not in the family editor. First you create a Decal type with your desired image, then you apply the decal type to the faces of objects in the project.

Well, you can insert an image in a model family, yes, but just for reference. Once you load this model family into a project, your image will not be visible.
