    Revit General Model Split Face and Paint Tools Issue

    Hi,

    I am taking over a model of a pavillion and i need to modify the stone fireplace which was model as a generic model. One of the revisions is that i need to inidcate two different materials on the chimeny part of the fireplace. I was hoping to achove that with a split face and paint command. I am able to complete the face split and paint in "edit mode" but when I complete the edit mode. the model changes back to old material. When i go back into edit mode, all changes are there.

    Any advice?

    You may have to do some associating of the split face materials to the family properties. Im guessing here, not at computer to work it out.

      Yep, use a parameter for the painted material and you can change it in the project. Work around is, if there is just 1 instance of the fireplace (can do that with more then one, but then it might be more work then setting parameters), to remove from the project, purge it out of the project and load it into the project again. It should then take the materials set in your family editor into the project because it is then a 'new' family in your project. But if materials change again you will have to do the same trick.
