    FIrst of all, I am realy glad with the progress made since releasing the Asset Library. I am glad with the growth of the number of models and the overall quality of the assets.

    I have been using the asset library a while now, especialy for interior visualisations. The qualilty of most assets are growing, i.e. the latetst sofa and beds are becomeing more realistic with the wrinkles and cushens!

    But the furniture right now is a mix of different interior styles which makes it hard to combine sofas with lounge chairs, tables, sideboards and shelves. This makes getting a realistic interior image much more difficult, because who would decorate their home with all this furniture which does not mix well? I would like to see furniture collections with matching furniture so we can dress up a room in a certain style!

    Perhaps you could get some advice from an interior architect on the selection of furniture in the asset library, and provide these as furniture collections? That would be a great help! It would also be a great help if we could adjust the colors/dimensions of the furniture, but I read that this is already on your radar.

    Keep up the good work with developing the asset library!

    Thanks all for thinking along with me :)

    I will try to photoshop the current texture and test what the outcome will be when I render this with Enscape. Will post the result also ;)

    The same issue would be present if you render straight out of Revit. Without a material map that has gauged brick it won't look great. Without actually trying it - I don't think it would take too long to make one. The only hard part in making it for something other than that specific lintel is the brick gauging, since the angle varies depending on width.

    Thanks for the tip! I have tried to search for a material map with gauged bricks, but I realy couldn't find one, also to match the current brick texture. I have some skill with photoshop so I could try to make it myself, but how would you do this since you say it wouldn't take too long to make one? :)

    Hi all, I was wondering if a Revit user knows a solution to a problem I have faced many times before, but for which I have never been able to come up with a solution for myself. X/

    See attached image:

    In some cases we model buildings which have a masonry lintel (it's called a lintel in English right? :P) above doors/windows. For drawings and 3D images in Revit I have no problem of displaying this right. But when rendering and using textures I face the problem of not being able to find these specific textures.

    I was wondering if there are other users which know a solution for this problem?

    Thanks in advance!
