I created this hatch pattern:

*CMU XXXX,  CMU;%TYPE=DRAFTING0,            0,             0,             0,             8.00,            0,             0.375,          0,             8.0

For some reason, when I import it into revit it's about 13'-0" from line to line as opposed to 8".  I have no idea how to scale it so that it reppresents the 7 5/8" CMU and the typical 3/8" mortar that it should import as.  Am I doing something wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated

I'm thinking that you need to make it a model pattern, not a drafting pattern.

I tried that, but when I went to import it, it kept saying 'No Drafting Pattern Found' or something similar.  It wouldn't let me import a model pattern.

I'm not familiar enough with hatch patter creation to tell you exactly why it's giving you an error, but I do know you need a model pattern. Right now it's making your lines 8 paper inches apart, which is why they look so big. Check your Help, and google revit hatch patters.

There is a point in the import process where you select whether you wish to import MODEL or DRAFTING. Change 

 

*CMU XXXX,  CMU

;%TYPE=DRAFTING

to

 

*CMU XXXX,  CMU

;%TYPE=MODEL

 

in the text file, select Model during import and you should be there.

Is it exactly 12.5 feet from line to line?

You might try adding this line to your file:

;%UNITS=INCH
