Using Custom Material Libraries in Revit

635 Views, 1 Replies

My company use a shared material library which is great because we can standardize the materials we use throughout projects. However if a colleague creates a new material and we wish to add it to the shared library then this can only happen when all other users close Revit as we get the following error message.

I was wondering whether there is a method to allowing multiple changes to materials at once and which then save back, almost like creating a material central file. Any ideas on this please...

At this time, there is not a way to have multiple user create new materials in a shared library at the same time.

I encourage you to use the feedback link as our Development group is always interested and would like to hear your feedback directly, since you are better suited to state the business case for a feature request.
