I have created exterior walls with the appropriate material.  I need to include vinyl siding as my finished exterior side but can only locak "Siding, Clapboard" which is wood within the Material Browser.  Does revit have the option of vinyl siding?  Is there an extention, addon to install or is this something you would have to create??


See pic.


Thanks in advance!!

If a material is not there, you can create it, without the need of any add-in. Simply find the button to create a new material. Give it a name, define its graphic and material properties, done.
