    Question Natural Revit Materials

    I have tried creating and searching for natural Revit materials to use for a project I am working on, specifically wood chips, a planed log material, and a tree bark material, and I have come up with nothing that I can use. The created materials look fake and you can tell that an image is repeated. Does anyone have a good source for this? I need to create logs that will line a pathway, as well as a log bench and a wood chip clearing area. Any help or suggestions that can be provided would be greatly appreciated! I am still working in Revit 2009, however I do have access to 2012.

    I have attached an image of the log bench I need to create, and I would like it to look somewhat realistic.

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a pretty good site... http://textures.forrest.cz/

    You will need to create family where you paint the face of the object instead of applying it to the family itself though to create that effect...

    You need materials that tile. In other words, materials that when joined together create a seamless field rather then looking like a patchwork of tiles. There are a number of companies that create nice materials such as Turbosquid, etc. You might want to Google "Tileable Texture Maps" and see what comes up in the search.

    Please also note that Materials changed DRASTICALLY from Revit 2009 to 2011 and 2012 versions,
    and they are not compatible. (i.e., materials in 2009 will not work in 2011-2012, and vice versa.

    This is due to the fact that the Accurender engine was replaced with Mental Ray / Protein 2 Materials
    from 2009 to 2011-2012.

    cheers
