    Materials and Phasing

    Hi guys,

    I'm working on a project that needs to have Phasing and design options, that's ok I'm already create my phasing scheme and my design options and all works nice.

    A little issue I'm facing right now is that some building elements will be re-painted in lieu of demolished, so I need to keep those elements but I'm trying to know if one can give a Phase just to a specific material?, is that possible?, I'm not sure if Revit allows me to create a material that is present in one phase and is replaced (Demolished) in the next one?, am I clearly enough?, all your comments and ideas are very welcome, regards

    This is something I wanted right from the first project I ever did in Revit and as far as I know it is not possible. The paint tool does not do phasing. Only way I can think of is to demolish the thing you want to paint and build a new one with the right color. Definatelly not how it should work !

    Hi Robin and many thank's for you response, Yes that was my fist thought about this subject but I wanted to hear other thoughts/Ideas about the way to achieve this, actually i'm modeling the object twice and that works fine, very sad that you cannot dissociate materials and assigning it a phase, thanks again regards

    Perhaps model the paint as a very thin wall? This method will not compromise sceduling.

    Hi Geert, no, since it's a curtain wall that should be just re-painted, I guess that model it twice is a better idea, but thank you so much for your response and suggestion, kind regards

    I posted that to Revit Ideas, but it got archived due to lack of community support ().
