    Import hatch patterns from autocad. Export patterns from drafting to model.

    1 - How to export hatch patterns from autocad in .pat file format? Or is there any other way to have them in Revit?
    2 - Where i can find existing drafting patterns in Revit, so i could import them in model patterns?
    3 - What advantages drafting pattern has vs model patterns?
    Cheers

    1. Forgot how to use that ancient piece of software - Sorry.
    2. There´s no way to get patterns out of Revit. Hopefully you still have that .pat file, and can just edit that?
    3. Uhhmm... Drafting patterns are ANNOTATIVE - Meaning that a 2mm spacing will always be 2 mm on the final print, regardless of scale. Model patterns are, well, Model patterns... the spacing will always be i.e. 500mm in the model, but will print with 5mm spacing at 1:100 and 50mm spacing at 1:10 scale
    Clear as mud ? :beer:

      1. For custom patterns, you might want to check out a piece of software someone created called Hatch22 (http://mertens3d.com/revit-2011-addi...22/hatch22.php)
      2.
      3. Ditto on Munkholm. Another reason you will use model patterns is for their ability to be rotated/aligned (i.e. a 2x4 SATC grid) by TAB-ing to the lines.
