THat's great news! But I've just sat through 3 days of REVIT training and was told consistently that there is no way to identify pipe runs in colour in 3D view (unless you 'paint' each individual element!).....
I have about 20 different pipe types on one of my projects, I have used "Filters" located in the Visibility/Graphic Overrides to set different colors to all different types. You just have to play with the filter settings a bit.

It's name and shame time!
Who on earth told you that rubbish? Its one of the more basic things to do.
As far as I know, one cannot apply Material to a Pipe Type specifically; it's defined by the Pipe System's Properties.
Hang Fire, I think I've just cracked it!
When a piping segment (under settings) is first created there is a dialog that asks what material to make the pipe from - simply select a material and your good to go....
I've attached a jpeg for more information. I've tested it with a multi-material valve attached to the pipe and the valve retains it's materials....I'll need to test this a bit more but it seems to work
Let's direct this conversation into the normal MEP Forum, shall we?
