    Materials Odd Behavior

    Hi Guys, I'm experiencing a quite bizarre behavior with my material editor, I'm working in Revit 2017.2 in a new project I just started last Monday using my own template, so I'm working to have some renders for this projects and I noticed that my material editor has been populated with a lot of random materials called "Render material 255-255-255" and so on, no matter how many times I delete those materials once I open my material editor I found it again and again, have you already experienced this type of behavior?, thanks’ in advance

    "Render Material 255-255-255" usually comes from imported cad.

      Hi elton williams, Thank's for your answer, yes I found it yesterday when I unload and re-load an imported dwg I was using in my Revit file :blah:, since I unloaded the cad file and get rid of those materials the Material Editor was clean but I noticed that the materials reappeared in the Revit file just when I reloaded the cad, regards and thanks again

        They'll keep coming back each time you bring in cad and so will the import categories. You can either clean up the file in cad before importing or just delete them in revit which will make all the subcategories change to default (usually black ) lines, or whatever you set the import category to.
