Hey everybody hope the reviting is going well.  I have a quick question about cut patterns.  Our office uses a poche for walls in plan but does not use it in section so we've been using masking regions over all the cut walls in all of our sections and I was just wondering whether its possible to set up different cut patterns for the same wall depending on whether its cut in plan on in section.  If not we'll keep on maskin away!  Thanks!

There are a couple things you could do depending on how you set your drawings up. You could set a Coarse Scale Fill Pattern in your Wall Type Properties and use Coarse, say, for your sections and not for you plans. Not the best method though. The best thing to do would probably be to use Visibility Graphics and override the Cut Pattern for the wall in whichever views you were using Masking Regions. You could also apply this to View Templates to make it's implementation even easier.

JRMello is right.  Set up one of your views in VG by turning off wall cut pattern by un-checking the visible box under walls - cut patterns - fill pattern graphics. 

 

Then find this view in your browser - right click on it and choose create view template from view - name it.  Right click on the views you want to9 be the same and assign this "default view template" to each of these views.  BTW - If these are in order, you can select them all at once and do this.  After assigning the template, apply the "default view template"  which is now the one you have assigned to these views.

If anybody is still paying attention to this posting. I do not find: "cut patterns" - "fill pattern graphics" under visibility graphics for walls in visibility graphics on my sections view. 

The only things under walls in "visibility Graphics"are: Common Edges, Hidden Lines & Wall Sweeps/Cornices

Cut patterns behind all of these selections are grayed out!!

If I right click on the actual wall in the section - I can select "override graphics in view", then select "by element...." then select the  "cut Patterns" arrow and uncheck "visible"

This is almost as monotenous as using  masking regions only slightly quicker. How do I do it by view?

Am I missing a step here somewharer or is this Revit Architecture 2010? (which I've yet to install!)

Any further help is appreciated

Revit Architecture 2009

The version I use is 2010.  I'm not sure if the option is there in 2009 or not but from the sound of it its not.  2010 has a lot of little features like that that I've found to be really useful that 2009 didnt.  Granted getting to know the new interface is a little bit of a pain but within a week or two you should be able to get it down without much trouble!  Happy Reviting!

WWHub - thank you. It was right there in front of me the whole time! I guess I got too caught up in looking into the branches. 

ArchiStud I guess I should bite the bullet and go for 2010.

Thank you to both of you.
