    [07/2011] - Rotate Drafting Patterns

    Applies to: - All Verticals

    New Feature / Problem:
    Allow Drafting patterns to Rotate and Align just like Model patterns can.

    Why do you need this Feature / Why is it a Problem:
    This one has been around for so long, I think most people have just given up on it.
    Details often have long, thin areas hatched and odd angles.
    A few can be accommodated by creating Line-based families, but since you can Rotate or Align Model patterns, why can't you Rotate a Drafting pattern?

    Workflow:
    Tab to a line in a Filled Region.
    Pick Rotate tool
    Rotate hatch pattern.

    OR

    Pick Align Tool
    Select a line at desired angle.
    Tab to Filled Region line.

    Exactly the same as model patterns

    Benefits:
    Better looking details.
    I don't have to explain why Revit can't do something most people view as a basic drafting function.

    The only reason for voting Would be Nice is that I actually gave up on it...

      Additional Benefit:

      Increased productivity due to not having to create seperate hatch patterns for every angle instance.
