Halftoned Revit Families

I keep making the same mistake, then I have to figure it out again, so maybe posting about it will help. The problem is, I make a new family and when I place it in a test project it is half toned. 

Turns out, I just skipped a rather important step. I used a generic family template and forgot to set the appropriate family category (see below). The default generic models category displays half toned based off the Revit MEP view discipline setting. A good check is just to set the view discipline to Coordination, if your color returns, check the families category.
