    Rendering problems using Autodesk 360 cloud

    Does anyone have issues with rendering materials in 'Revit Link' objects in a scene? I'm trying out rendering in the cloud and seem to be having issues finding materials. I've got a housing development site plan of which has multiple 'Revit Links' loaded in for each different house type etc... The materials are all set up and it renders fine in Revit itself but when trying the cloud render its saying it cannot find certain materials. I must explain that these materials it cannot find are material maps I've created (not revit standard library materials). I've tried rendering a stand alone model with custom materials and its fine, so it seems its just with revit links. Can anyone shed some light on this situation?

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Found the issue...Server based. For anyone using this 360 feature in a company...make sure that you use an intelligent way of storing your materials (not just in a central location on a server) Dropbox works pretty well if you have enough storage capacity to put your material library on there and then share the folder with other users, this means that the materials will be constantly updated onto each users 'C' drive. Then is just a case of telling Revit to look at your dropbox folder on your 'C' drive for the materials. Hope this helps anyone that may be looking into using this Cloud rendering service.
