    btw....the Revit internal code for fill patterns does not appear to be exposed. For me at least, the egg remains uncracked...but I have ideas.

    Hey Gregory.
    Thanks for the hatch22. And love some of you 3ds.
    Quick Q. Why does curves not work in the hatches? wothout small line segments?

    well...hmm...i replied to this question but it does not appear to have posted.

    Revit/Autocad has never supported curves in .pat file (as far as I know).

    I intend to add a curver to line segments conversion in the future.

    Gregory -

    Well done! We've been looking for something like this at our office for a long time. No more hunting around other websites to see if someone made a hatch pattern similar to what we want. Thank you for making this!

    Thanks for making this free! It's already proving to be a huge help.
    Thanks again.

    There is a little trick I discovered on how to get pat files from Revit (in case you were not the originator of the pattern file)...

    Select multiple views for DWG export that has the pattern you want to get... Don't just select one! The pat files will disappear too fast!
    Open one explore window with where your exporting the DWG....open another one to save the PAT files....
    What will happen is you will see the DWG being saved, then PAT files, and when the PCP file is saved the PAT files disappear. I copy and paste all the PAT files into my other open window.

    Now, open the CAD file you just exported and find the fill your wanting to acquire. The pattern name is FP_(x)...you will find that same pattern name in the PAT files you copied over...

    Voila! You have the pattern that you don't have to spend forever trying to recreate...

    EDIT: The reason for the multiple files....when you try to copy and paste Windows will lose the info on what is getting copied...but the next view is the same pat files, so you have time to paste.
