So i am working on this site at 1/60th inch, i want to hatch a small portion of a building roof.  Right now the hatch pattern is much too large, is there any way to scale just the hatch without changing my drawing scale?

You need a new hatch.  If you have the old hatch file (pat) file, re-import it at a new scale.

Hey! Thanks for this question becaue mine is similar. I have a metal roof and want a hatch pattern to show the seams. This works well in elevation, but will not ""orient to view" in 3D. The 3 options for the Orientation are "Orient to view", "Keep readable", and "Align with element"... but none will make the lines follow the slope of the roof in 3D. Any solutionS?? Thanks so much for all the help I get from this site!!! Miller

If your hatch is a model hatch and is associated with the material, you can rotate the hatch to match yor roof.

 

However, your post sound like you hatched a view.  That has no relation to the model.  Assign the hatch to the material.

Yes... it is a model hatch.  It is assigned to the material "metal roofing", via the same "structure" tab in the type properties > edit assembly dialogue box. My "metall SS" hatch is a "simple" hatch that I created using verticle parallel lines. So... per your answer... how do I rotate it? I thought it would rotate itself 90 degrees to the line of the wall plate??... or orient to view accordingly as needed for a 3D view??

If its a model pattern assigned to the material then it will align in all views.  You can rotate it by selecting one of the lines (use tab) and rotate it.  You cannot align a model pattern to the view so I assume that your pattern is a drafting pattern and not a model pattern.
