Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a custom material, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
In this movie, we're going to look at another approach that we can take to…adding custom artwork to the surfaces of our model.…In our Graffiti Gallery, we have that large, massive wall that we created…that was created from some freeform massing components, and it curves in…multiple directions.…You can't use the Decal feature on something that's double-curving.…If we wanted to add a decal to the turret here on the townhouse, that would work…just fine, but if it's curving in two directions at the same time, then the…Decal feature doesn't work.…
But it turns out that we can create a custom material instead and achieve…basically the same result.…It just takes a little bit more effort to set it up.…So let me show you the process here. And I'm going to go down to my 3D Views.…I'm in the file called SAMOCA_V6. And I have a couple 3D Views of the Graffiti…Gallery. And I'm going to open up this one right here, which is a nice…axonometric, double-click that.…And what I've done here is I've cropped everything away using a section box, and…
