I have a curved roof that I did in extrusion for 2 roof plans that come together.  One plane has the roof surface pattern shown correctly.  The other has it upside down.  I cannot get the pattern to rotate.  My only hope is to create another surface pattern with the pattern rotated 180 degrees.  How do I do this?  I cannot even find where this original surface pattern comes from.

That looks like a pattern derived from Shake 6", Wood Shakes which is a ;%TYPE=MODEL pattern contained in the standard file Revit.pat (a text file).

Model patterns can normally be rotated by methods described in other threads in this forum. The curved extrusion may prevent it being amenable to such action. Have you tried backtracking to just before the extrusion and rotating  the pattern before extruding? This could be your most direct fix.

Otherwise it's fairly simple in this case to create a rotated version as the pattern contains only vertical and horizontal lines. Edit a copy of the original pattern from Revit.pat by adding 180 to the first value and change the sign of the second and third value of each line. You should wind up with this:

*Shake 6" rotated,  Wood shakes rotated

;%TYPE=MODEL

180,  -0,  -0,             12.75,         6,             3,             -2.5,          3.5,           -1.5,          4.5,           -2

180,  -3,  -0.25,          12.75,         6,             2.5,           -9.5,          2,             -3

180,  -9,  0.375,        12.75,         6,             1.5,           -15.5

-90,   -0,  -0,             6,             4.25,          5.75,          -18.25

-90,   -3,  -0,             6,             4.25,          5.625,         -18.375

-90,   -5.5,  -0,             6,             4.25,          5.25,          -18.75

-90,    -9, 0.375,        6,             4.25,          5.75,          -18.25

-90,    -10.5,  0.375,        6,             4.25,          5.75,          -18.25

-90,    -15,  -0,             6,             4.25,          5.5,           -18.5

Save as a text file with file extension .PAT then load from there into Revit with a suitable name via Settings>Fill Patterns ...

BTW the rotation control in HatchKit is far faster at this than Notepad is Smile

Model patterns in Revit can me moved, aligned and rotated simply by selecting the pattern [hint: hover over pattern line, tab until you see it highlight, left click to select]  Once selected you can rotate as you desire.  Note: this only works for model patterns, not drafting patterns.
