I am beginner in using Revit Architecture.
When I use ( Paint icon) to add a material , I can't find some materials. For instance (Ceramic Tile 4 Blue). How can I find such materials?
When you say "I can't find some materials", this prompts the questions where did the material go. Assuming you had it before and assuming you will find it in a new file if you open one, I would Transfer Project Standards to get it back into your project again.
See this link for detail on Transfer Project Standards:
If however you never had this material go here for detail on Materials:
Thanks for posting.
When i am in the Edit Assembly panel i cannot find Site-Sand to include in my concrete slab design. Where did my sand go? of course i can create a new materail but where can i find a user defined library of materials
Material library in Revit Architecture does not contain all types of materials. At first, go to ‘Manage’, click on ‘Materials’ and check what all materials are available within the Material library. Within Paint, only the inbuilt materials of Revit library are reflected. If you cannot find your desired materials in the library, in that case you need to create those materials manually.
If you are using the "Paint" tool, only materials that have been loaded into the revit project from the libary are visiblein the window.
Incase you dont know how to load materials from the libary into the file, do the following:
Once you have done this your material will show up when you use the paint tool.
Hope this helps
