How can I make this tile pattern a fill pattern?

Does anyone know how to code this or use hatch22?  I cannot get it to repeat properly

In order for it to be a Revit or AutoCAD pattern, you have to have a repeatable area in the x/y direction and you have to define the whole pattern to that size.  I don't see where this pattern repeats in the sample you provided.

WWHUB, it is a repeating pattern, but the pattern moves AND rotates.

It's a rosette of four tiles, arranged skewed in both X and Y. This is based on 2" by 5" tiles - easy to scale manually if necessary as everything is integer.

 

Try this:

;%VERSION=3.0

;%UNITS=INCH

*TILECITY

;%TYPE=MODEL

I have always built my patterns by hand.  Either I forgot or I did not know that you could define a skewed pattern. 

 

It is never to late to learn (or re-learn).  But sometimes its a bummer when you forget.

 

Thanks hugh

I hear that, WWHUB.  Everytime I do a hatch pattern I have to relearn it because I do it so infrequently.  Nice job, Hugh.

JLink,

If you wanted to do it in hatch22 you'd have to define your pattern as shown in the attached image.

All the lines within the red boundary would need to be included in the pattern definition.

As you can see, in this case this will create a pattern file that is larger than the one that much larger than the one from hatchkit.

Hugh,

How does this work in hatchkit?

Do you just draw the spinner shape and then tell it to offet in the x and y a certain amount (within your program)?

a little more detail

Even though the .pat file is larger than the hatchkit one, I suspect it's not any slower for Revit to draw.

But I'd need to verify that somehow.

Basically, yes. The attached picture shows the arrangement for the template discussed above.

We offer a full demonstration to download from http://www.hatchkit.com.au/download.php

We're working on an extensive update.

This pattern can be apecified using a 29x29 square arrangement of about 440 lines.
