Hi

I'm struggling with converting an imperial brick pattern to millimeters. The pattern should be a running bond with the brick dimension: length 226mm, height 60mm and mortars: 14mm vertical and 15mm horizontal. (the brick module is 240x75). I find the autoCAD help file very difficult to work out. I wonder why they haven't made the procedure more grafical yet?!?!

this is the patternfile I used as a sketch: 

0,      0,  0,  .25,.2,  .47,-.030,      0,.17,  .25,.2,  .47,-.0390,     0,  0,  .2,.25,  .17,-.2390,  -.03,  0,  .2,.25,  .17,-.23

 Thanks!

 -Lasse

look, at the end of the day, no-one doe, there are far better things to do with your time.

I have attached a model version for you, the things to note in the file are the line telling Revit that it is metric and a model pattern

Thanks Psymon!

 And you are totally right! And in addition you also master the hatch-nonsense. Sometime I really wonder when (or if)  Autodesk will MAC-simplify their programs, so their customers will get a true userfriendly and easy learning-and-doing environment... 

 ...Again: thanks! The world would be a cooler place with more people like you!

Hi Psymon

 I've looked at the hatchpattern you did for me, which was fine since it had the rigtht overall proportions, but the real troubble I'm dealing with, is how to add mortars in the pattern. This simply won't work out for me...

Download a cad hatch creator like hatch manager from globalcad. You can draft your hatch in autocad, export the .pat, then add the script line that will allow it to work in revit.

Note a "soft" conversion is done when loading a model pattern specified in inches into a metric environment - ok  for stone but not metric bricks.  This pattern should work for you

Whoops, I'd forgotten about the pitfall surrounding cut and paste - try the attached file.

Sure. 

Using HatchKit, 

  • draw a line from 0,0 to 240,0 then continue to 240,75 then to 0,75 and finally to 0,0 (or C to close).
  • Adjust the pattern repeat vector endpoints to 0,250 and 125,85
  • Name the pattern and save as Revit Metric Model

Result will be like this:

  • ;%VERSION=3.0
  • ;%UNITS=MM
  • *240X75+10,240x75 brick, stretcher bond
  • ;%TYPE=MODEL
  • ;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • ;        Pattern written by HatchKit v2.7 Hatch Pattern Editor
  • ;        HatchKit v2.7 Hatch Pattern Editor(c) Cadro Pty Ltd 1990-2008.
  • ;        www.cadro.com.au/hatchkit/
  • ;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • ;-HatchKitVersion=2.7.1.2013
  • ;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • -90,0,75,85,125,75,-95
  • 180,240,75,125,85,240,-10
  • 90,240,0,85,125,75,-95
  • 0,0,0,125,85,240,-10

If you cut and paste this pattern to a text file it should work. Just in case, it's also attached.

No worries.

We're currently a bit short on rain - any going spare up there?
