    Lightbulb How to get all materials in "use" in Revit?

    Hello Dynos,

    So I try get all materials in use. I need it for a preparation of a VR-Model from revit.

    How can I get every material(Rendermaterial) which is placed on face?

    I would like to make a list.

    As simple as possible! Should I try it category by category?
    With selecting faces it doesend work? the selection of the whole buliding has always errors?

    Does anybody have an idea?

    to be exhaustive, better to use Revit API, especially because new Visual Materials API included in Revit 2018

    or use Dynamo's Python Script
