Was wondering if any Revit Veteran can please tell me why im having a hard time with this image.You can see a strip of the stone and the rest is greyed out on the left side of the screenshot, i was told this image of stone is non-tilable, maybe thats the problem? I've gone over (at least i think i have) every possible setting to get this image to work, any insight is greatly appreciated, thank you.
It looks like the image is only repeated in one direction.
You can check in the materials how the texture is repeated:
1. In the "Manage" ribbon tab, click "Materials".
2. In the material browser select the stone material.
3. On the right side, select the "Appearance" tab.
4. Click on the image.
5. In the texture editor, check the values under the "Repeat" section, make sure the values for "Horizontal" and "Vertical" are set to "Tile".
If it does not work, then maybe try to open the image with an image editor program and save it in another format.
Revit doesn't really know whether an image is seamlessly tileable or not - it just sees an image that it can wall-paper over a surface.
I suspect the manufacturer's comments related to the repeating patterns that you see in the more random textures when they are tiled over a material.
Just repeating what Rene said - It does look as though the image is not set to tile correctly - check that both U and V tiling is checked under the material's appearance (open the material editor, select the material, appearance - then click the image) to bring the texture editing box up:
Yes i do have that and they are both set to tile, if i try any other material it works fine, the stone just doesnt work well at all and i wonder if its time to go another material
