    Can not Paint the Column !!!

    When I use tool Paint with Wall it's OK. But I cannot paint any column : the face of the column doesnot appear ! Anyone meets this obstacle like me ???

    Objects such as Columns, doors and window which are user created families can not have the paint tool used to apply materials to their geometry. Instead you need to open the properties of the column and change the material parameter for the column.

    If you are trying to change just one face of the column (or not all sides to the same material), you will need to modify the family so that the geometry can have multiple materials applied to it.

      Not entirely true... You CAN paint surfaces of families, but you need to set it up in the family itself. Search the forum for "paint parameter families" and it should pop up.

        Yeah, and in 2012 (even though they fixed it so the paint tool WORKS in the families), if you use a parameter it doesnt actually DO the painting, lol. Maybe in 2013.

            Aaron, Have you tried this fix?

            It worked for me, or am I missing something?

              Yep. I have it installed. Here, it works, and you can "use" paint, but if you "paint" with a parameter value, and put the content in the project, and change the paint value, it doesnt actually work.

                I had it working, and just double checked it right now. To be sure.
                The painted face is updated as the material parameter changes.

                    Good to know. Must be something with my machine then.

                    Tried it the other day. Native 2012 family. Family templates, however, are upgraded from 2011.
