Duplicating materials

Duplicating materials: Revit: Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting
Duplicating materials: Revit: Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting

A very common workflow in Revit is to edit a type, duplicate it, and the modify the settings of the duplicate. However, if you use this workflow with materials, you will inadvertently modify both the original and the duplicate material. This is because, by default, duplicating materials has both copies reference the same appearance asset. Therefore, be sure to always take the extra step of duplicating or replacing the appearance asset before modifying.
