Is there a way to make a pattern, like a 60 x 60 crosshatch pattern on a wall that needs to be yellow on my sheet n views?

I mean, can we mix a filled color + patterns on walls or other revit elements.

 

I just cannot do it and became thin on new ideas to solve this with some simple and low poly method...

Is it just one wall? Override the property of the wall and click on surface pattern and apply your 60x60. You need to make a 60x60 crosshatch from Settings-fill pattern. If many, create a wall type and change it's property.

You can create a materail for this.... just add the pattern to it.  If you want the pattern in 3d views, it needs to be a 3D pattern ... better if it is anyway so that you can adjust it.  If you want it in renderings, then it needs an associated jpg material image.

View Filters make a great method too, without having to change the rendering properties of the object.  For example, fire rating, add the parameter if it isn't already there, populate it, then create a view filter for each of your different ratings.  These filters should apply to walls only (unless you know what you are doing, then you can be braver), should "look" at your fire rating, and should compare it to the value (i.e.- 1 hour fire smoke might be one which you use, and stored in the fire rating parameter should be 1 hour fire smoke). 

Finally, you need to add the filters to the view, and then override the pattern to your desired pattern + color.  For example, in one project, we had our 1 hour corridor rating which was a black square, white square pattern on print, but in our plan/RCPs appeard as yellow squares/white squares... We had other ratings whith each appearing a different color, green, blue, orange, etc. so that we could tell the rating at a glance...

If my explanation wasn't clear enough, please search for view filters, everything you need to know will be there...

Mmm, But how do you do a yellow wall with a 60x60 model crosshatch pattern on a hidden line view?

 

I had a curtain wall with yellow panels already done, but I want to change it to a simple wall with this properties because I think it´s a better solution for my project, it's easier to modify and I prefer not to use curtains on this case...

 

Thanks for all your replies.

Once you have created the wall filter for each rating, add it to your filters (under visibility graphics overrides), then there are 4 override boxes, 2 for projection/surface (ignore these) and 2 for Cut.  Under the overrides button for Patterns (under the Cut section) if you click on this button, you can assign a pattern to the objects, AND you can assign the color also...

I don't think there is a way to have what you want.

Pattern and colour options in hidden line view mode

option 1

Set grid pattern (say vertical) and colour (green)

Output - green stripes on white wall

Option 2

Set pattern to solid fill and clolour to green

Output - green solid colour

 

Solid colour and pattern on wall are mutually exclusive in hidden line view. One or the other only.

At least I confirmed what I believed from the beginning: It´s not possible to make a pattern with and a fill color on a wall at the same time. 

I think it should. 

Thanks a lot for your help!

LOL, now I'm confused, I see what you are saying mcantwell... I used custom patterns, which I made myself, so in order to get the 60x60 crosshatch, you might have to make a pattern which shades the squares...  As mcantwell pointed out, whatever is normally black, is what becomes whatever color you set it to.  Thus, if you want say white lines between the yellow tiles, then you have to make a pattern which shades each tile (currently, the patterns shade the grout, if you will).

the only way would be to apply a solid color to the surface and go in and draw the pattern with model lines. then you have to hide the model lines in views you dont want to have it show.
