Do you mean hatch patterns?

Yes that's right, hatch patterns for my grounds (kitchen, office, ...). When I try to take a pattern here, it doesn't download (?) and I don't know after downloading how to use it. Thank you Very much

Cypher, Go to Settings-->Fill Patterns-->and add a new model or drafting pattern then use this surface pattern in a material used on a particular surface. (make sure you set the import scale for the pattern by clicking on the name of the pattern after import). You can also do this directly from the material settings... benw, Check your visibility settings for floors-->surface pattern and makes sure its turned on. Surface patterns will not show on ramps. Also check to make sure the material setting for the floor has the appropriate surface pattern assigned, and isn't confused with the cut pattern. HTH.

I know this thread is very old but rather than start a new I thought I would continue in here.....I am trying to apply simple hatch patterns to my plans, in this case im trying to put tiles on the bathroom floor.

 

Coming from autocad these used to be done via the hatch command, I then select the boundary, then the hatch pattern/scale etc and then click ok.

 

In revit I think they are called 'fill patterns'??  But cannot find the procedure to actually place them.  Ive been reading the forums and the help but cant stumble across the first command (the hatch equivalent in autocad).

Can someone give me the first step as im having trouble adjusting to the simple things in revit.

For just hattching, you can use 'fill region' under drafting.  There are many patterns and you can make your own.  Particulary easy are straight 'tile' patters.  Fill regions are view specific and therefor will not show in other veiws or 3d. and you will not get any quantites

I genereally model the way I build.  For floors, I make a structural slab and add a topping floor with the finish.  That way I can have a full structural floor but with differrent floor finish in different rooms Cryingcarper, tiles, timber)  For this case I have in my template file most of my standard 'floors' This is not view specific and will appear in 3d.  Keep in mind that the rendered floor appear different to the 'hattched' floor.  There are 2 settings for material

Thankyou Erik,

 

For the moment I will only need a view specific hatch but am having trouble getting revit to specify the region.

For example in ACAD the hatch command asks me to select boundaries and it autodetects the region and applies the hatch, going around objects etc.  In have a picture of what I am trying to achieve.

 

How do I get revit to apply tiles to my bathroom without literally tracing a region around the room and all the objects which would be far to inefficient.   Can it be done as simply as ACAD hatching or is it more built towards setting up templates with floors and materials built in?

Revit does not 'detect' you room to make a region.  You can however create it by clicking on the walls.  Bathrooms are generally rectangular so it is not a big deal. 

To hide the tiling under the fittings is more difficult. 

I guess therefor I use a floor.  It is just as easy to make and it is more true to the actual situation of making a virtual model.  It will also look right in section and be calculated with quantites. 

I know this does not help you to make Revit like Autocad.  I guess it was never intended to.  At the same time, it would be good to have some of the good things with Autocad across to Revit
