    Materials Cut Patterns - Model Patterns Unavaliable

    Any work around out there to getting a Model Cut Pattern Available

    I'm making up alot of Plywood Internal Finishes, 12mm thick with 3mm Laminates
    I have a Filled Region with a 3mm Pattern for this, but want to move it across to my Wall Families
    but when I choose my materials cut pattern style, all that is available is Drafting Patterns.

    Any help would be appreciated heaps

    That's just the way it is in Revit, unfortunately. Only drafting patterns can be used as a cut pattern. So, you either create drafting patterns that will scale correctly at 1:5, 1:10, 1:20 etc or, if these cut patterns are going in specific families and you always want them to appear correctly you could nest a detail component which has a model filled region in it into the families.

        Good Little Tip
        If you want to create Fine Model Patterns, say 3 mm High Horizontal, Create them using there Imperial Equivalent!
        Revit will take a Very Small Imperial Pattern, but not an Metric one?

        I have successfully made a Plywood Laminate 3 mm high (or 1/8th Inch) in Model Patterns

            Only model patterns scale. They're for things like elevations where you want the bricks to always be the correct size. Drafting patterns are identical regardless of the scale. This was to prevent poor drafting in details.
