I want to import fill patterns at different scales than the ones already loaded.  Where do I go in the Revit Program File to find the fill patterns and import them in at a different scale?  I have Revit on my computer so I know to go to this far   C:\Program Files\Revit Architecture 2009.... 

 

Thank you,

AAron

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY DIFFERENT SCALE? REVIT CHANGES THE SCALE OF THE FILL PATTERNS DEPENDING ON THE SCALE OF THE VIEW. yOU MAY WANT TO LOOK INTO THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRAFTING AND MODEL FILL PATTERNS AS THEY WILL ACT DIFFERENTLY.

My boss wanted the hatch pattern for earth on sections to be smaller than they were and I was having troubles finding where in the revit program file the hatch patterns were.  I knew how to import them in as smaller from reading the fourms here but I could not find the actual .pat files.

I will look into the properties to see how model and draft patterns react differently.  Thank you,

AAron

C:\Program Files\Revit Architecture 2009\Data\REVIT.PAT

THATS WHERE THE FILE IS LOCATED. IF YOU KNOW HOW TO EDIT THE PAT. FILE YOU CAN GO THAT ROUTE, OR YOU CAN ALWAYS CREATE A NEW ONE IN CAD AND IMPORT( COPY/PASTE) IT INTO REVIT.

Whoa - the Revit file, like the autocad, is all in one file.  Find the Revit combined pat or an autocad combined pat then isolate just the definition for the pattern you want and save it to a sperate file.  Then you can load it at the scale you want.   PAY attention to the second line of the pat definition - if it is ";%TYPE=MODEL" then it is a model hatch and must be imported as a model hatch.  Otherwise it is a drafting/ 2D hatch.  NOTE that you can add this line to any 2D hatch and make it be a 3D (model) hatch.
