    Filled Regions not playing nice.

    I have a detail component of a insulated CMU block. its pretty baisc. 3 filled regions and line work to go with it.

    My problem is with the filled regions. I have a cross hatch for the concrete portion or the block, a conc hatch for the voids, and a corser cross hatch for the insualted parts. My detail has the walls at a 45 degree coner. the cross hatch dose not allign to the element. Ive changed the settings of the filled patterns in both the family and project.

    Am I missing something? Why wont the filled region allign to the element? I want the corss hatch to always be at a 45 to the element?

    Drafting patterns don't align with elements, you need to use a model pattern

      Can you use a model pattern in a detail component?

        I just did it.. So I guess you can use model patterns in detail components.

        Thanks Guys

          You can set a drafting pattern to align with element, but what in means is "align with element when the element is a wall, floor, roof or ceiling and nothing else". Another flavor of the crappy looking plywood problem. Which is further exacerbated by the fact that the model pattern you want is "too small" for Revit to cope with. The model pattern kludge will work for CMU or brick, but not the plies in plywood.

            How did you get your callout bubble without the leader and the outline part?

              Its a dummy symbol, not all the drawings of this project are in revit. Was one of the first projects in revit for my office. :-\

                  Now you put your name in your signature!!!! geeze

                  The Detail dosent even exist within Revit. This project was started before my time, and like I said it was one of the first Revit projects in my office.

                    It's a freakin nightmare to create but with these kind of details I model the hatch pattern using parametric detail lines. All other solutions I find to be crappy at the least. The model patterns don't scale, the drafting patterns don't allign...
