    Materials Batch Delete Tool

    Can't remember if I have mentioned this FREE little addin for cleaning out your Materials list before.
    If you have ever tried to clean out your Materials list before you will know how painful it is to do one by one. This little app. makes it a whole lot eaiser.

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

    Looks slick.

    Another way to quickly delete materials that may work in any Revit version is this little AutoHotKey tidbit that makes F5 delete the selected material in the material dialog:

    Code:
    #IfWinActive, Materials
    F5::  ; hotkey    delete material
    WinWait, Material
    IfWinNotActive, Materials
    WinWaitActive, Materials
    Send, !e
    WinWait, Revit, Delete
    IfWinNotActive, Revit
    WinWaitActive, Revit, Delete
    Send, y
    return

      Yep, great tool... I should have had this the first 3 times I reorganised my template (back in the days when I would still import all kinds of trash from Revitcity)...

        Hello...1st time user here and just starting to learn and experience the wonderful world of Revit. My main purpose of Revit is to export into Maya and re-materialize and render. I recently tried importing a building from revit into maya and it took about half hour. Mainly because of all the textures and materials it was trying to load up. I dont need all those materials because I am going to re-apply new materials. Therefore, I been trying to figure out how to delete all the materials inside Revit.

        So I came accross this page and found this script from "mark b". It was posted only a couple months ago, but no when I try accessing it, I keep getting a 404 page file not found. Is there anyway to re-upload this file? Or does that script code from "trueviz" work the same way? If so, how do i use it and enter that code in?

        Thanks
