    How to create patterned floor with unique shapes added ?

    Hi everyone , i think for me it is the time to make pattern on floors , my knowledge into making pattern on floor is that i can make the floor has certain surface pattern , that is it. But i need to make custom shapes unusual and non repetitive often(it is working drawing).
    so what do you recommend me to do this pattern you see on the image (available correctly handy revit tools)see first image ?
    and also how to grab the end of crosshatching pattern surface because it is wrong to be like this (see second image)?
    please help

    For that, you'd need to create lots and lots of "finish" floors... One floor (or maybe more) for each kind of different tile you are installing.

    And yes, it's lots of work, but no more than in that program which we are not speaking of anymore

      Lord Voldemort has a program? :laugh:


      Could he do that as filled regions, then group them? Sort of like a rug that he can throw over the actual floor. I know you couldn't tag it, but if it's just for representation. Actually, that sounds a lot like that other program which shall not be named. :hide:

        Think I remember an interiors class at AU that talked about still using "that other program" for intricate ceilings.....

          No i am deciding to try to work whatever architecture on revit and not mention any other programme (do not worry No propaganda for free ), we will talk about programme ;about filled region can i attach Line model into filled region because as far as i know that filled region is like cleaning rectanhle lines with hatch

            i like members here saying the other programme , i know it :ka:
            can i attach Line model into filled region because as far as i know that filled region is like cleaning rectangle lines with hatch or (do you mean drawing the custom pattern by model lines and then make group them with the cusom hatch.
            also can i grab this little difference in the second image because this representation can not be correct.

              try using the Parts tool. Create a floor with a finish layer on top, ad turn it into Parts. Edit the division of the Parts to create complex patterns and assign materials to each of the parts.

              If you aren't familiar with Parts, you can look them up in the Help menu.

                Scott, my first thought was that the usual Finish Floor with lots of cut-ins would be the best bet, but parts is kinda interesting. Can you comment on the reasons why parts would be better than Finish Floors? I am especially curious about material take-offs with, say, lots of different tile materials. And aligning/rotating the tile model patterns. And tagging each material if needed with a Material tag. If all of that works, and the resultant finish floor is a little easier to manage, either in the modeling, or the maintenance of the model, or the ability to hide the finishes in Architectural views (as compared to Worksets or Filters) then Parts suddenly has more Architectural use than I was giving it credit for.

                  Question I would have....are you going to render it? Then I would either create a layer of floor (tile) and split it up to the different designs...but this would be seen in all views all the time. Nice thing about using parts is you can turn it off in views that you don't care to see the pattern. (such as 1:100 views...it would be a black blob)

                    To address that visibility issue with actual floors I use a filter for all Finish Floors and a filter for all Finish Walls. Those filters are in the view templates so an Architectural plan doesn't show finishes at all, Interior Elevations show Finish Walls, Finish Plans show Finish Floors, etc. And 3D views show both by default. Much superior to the old approach of a Finishes Workset, which isn't nearly as granular, and requires remembering to put stuff on the right work set. With the filters approach, visibility happens automatically, as long as the naming convention is followed.
                    And if there is no way to filter Parts, then the whole thing falls apart and I am back to the Finish Floors recommendation.
