I'm trying to reproduce this problem, but can't find a way, can you provide some more detailed steps or a screenshot with the issue?

Looks like it could be an issue with the grass. Working within the basic sample project (Revit 2013), I applied the grass with default settings and chose the "grassGeneric" material (located on my networked Q: drive with all the paths correct.

I then get the error below. The weird thing is, I don't know if this is a Revit issue or a Maxwell issue. I say this because our Revit install is pre-compiled (clue 1) and our office G: drive has our Revit resources on it (clue 2), so perhaps our IT guys auto-pathed Revit to the G: drive.
