    how to darken fill pattern

    hi, i was wondering how to darken a fill pattern? i attached a picture below.

    the pattern was a hatch i found online. i tried modifying it, but have been unsuccessful in darkening it. i was able to change its color but thats all. i attached another picture to show what i did. how can i darken it?

    thank you

    You can change the colour - change it to a darker shade. It's under "surface pattern"

    Unless you're meaning something else.

      If you're talking about making the lines thicker, I think material patterns are hardwired to lineweight 1 from the factory. Filled regions can be assigned different lineweights if that helps at all.

          It is 1 for all non ceiling patterns. Patterns in a ceiling will use 2. How very last century such limitations are.

              hi, where is it under surface pattern? ive changed the color rgb to 0 0 0, pure black, however it continues to look like light gray.

              i attached 2 more pictures of it. i feel like this should be a simple thing, but i cant figure out how

                Pen weight #1 is what controls the thickness of model lines....so check the scale of your view and then look at what your line weight is for Pen #1....

                  Yep, what you have done is correct.
                  Do you have any overides turned on ?
                  Select roof, right click, select, overide graphics in view/ by element and hit reset.

                    do you think it has something to do with the .pat file?

                    i have tried resetting and even explicitly putting everything to solid black, but yet it appears grey. i attached a picture below. is it the way the .pat file is written?

                    i attached the .pat file as well. can the .pat file be selecting grey as the default color?
