Using Dunn Edwards Colors in your Revit Project

March 6, 2012

Update 08-17-13:

I recorded a How To on getting Dunn Edwards paint colors into your Revit project materials browser, which is located on the arch-intel.info web site.   Sam at D.E. sent me the spreadsheet which has the RGB values, which is also available.  There are two w-clips on this page.  The first shows how to create the materials in Revit. The other w-clip has two parts: one accessing the Excel spreadsheet, which is available through the Arch-Intel Dropbox. and the second on how to create a new Dunn Edwards paint materials directory in Revit with an adsklib file I’ve created and is also available through the Dropbox.

Happy Painting

Luke Johnson over at the “What Revit Wants” Blog (link in our side bar) suggested an alternative to Photoshop.  http://www.getpaint.net/ which is a free program that should give you similar capabilities to Photoshop.  You can find out more by checking out Luke’s blog at :


Much Thanks Luke!! (CK)……………………………………

I’ve also used Artweaver which is available at: http://www.artweaver.de/download-en/
Make sure you download the free version.  (CK)


  1. You could also adapt this method and use free Paint.NET instead of Photoshop?
