Export Geometry / Mesh from Rhino to Revit through Rhino Inside Revit

From this thread, I know I can use “AddDirectShape.ByGeometry” to Export Geometry / Mesh from Rhino to Revit.

The problem of Directshape is that the material assigned to it is not persistent. Please find more details in here.

Is it possible to export Geometry / Mesh from Rhino to Revit using other formats, such as familyinstance so I can easily assign “persisitent” materials?

Thanks.

Hi,

I think there is no API to change a DirectShape Solid material but what is possible is recreate it and assign the material while you are doing that.
If I’m not wrong this material is persistent in all views unless you override it per view.

Anyway being able to generate families on the fly may be really useful for so many reasons like this one, but is still not possible. I’m aware I should explore more this other approach.
