    Adding Pattern/Hatch Visibility Parameter to Family

    Both my exhaust fans and RTU's are located under the family type "mechanical equipment." However, I only want to hatch the Exhaust fans, not the RTU's. I am wondering if there is a simple solution to this? I have attempted to change the family type to specialty equipment for the exhaust fans. However they disappear in the floor plan when I reload the family and I checked V/G. Attached is a jpeg of what it looks like currently.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm guessing you're using VG to display the hatch by category? Use sub categories in your families or just add the hatch to your exhaust fan family, not the RTU.

    Yes, on a unique parameter value for that type.
