Hi, i have queston about revit that..
How can i attach information to elements of revit so that i can get it in GBXML and also through program like wall material?

thanks in advance.

Thanks...this is great. However can you help me if I need it to go the other way? The RVT file when you set a material name won't read it from the family unless it is also in the material file for the rvt file. (I am trying to work out some material takeoffs)... And apparently you can't transfer from the family to the RVT file.

There is a better way to do this!
This way you will keep a small size family.
After you've created your "thing" (let's say a foundation) right click it -> Element Properties and by "Materials and finishes" click on the gray square (NOT the one with the three dots!! But the one on the right of that one!)

Click "Add parameter..." give it a name, set it as an "Instance" and under: "Group parameter under" you'll set it to "Materials and finishes"! Click OK and your done!

Save it and load it into your project.
Now when you right click on it and select "Element Properties" You'll find an "Materials" parameter where you can select one of the materials from your project!

Just make sure to have the other file open and then go to the File pull down menu and choose Transfer Project Standards.
