I would love to be able to show our cut concrete hatch pattern as a solid but halftone (like shading).  Is there a way to do this?  I can see where you change it to a solid but then it is black.

 

If that can not work is there a way to turn the concrete hatch pattern to halftone.

 

The reason is our reinforcing does not show up well with the concrete hatching pattern.

Change it to a solid and change the color to grey.

Just to clarify the previous response, you can change the cut pattern for the concrete to be solid and have a gray color under the Manage tab, and then Materials. The dialog box will pop up where you can define the graphics for the materials you have loaded into your Revit. One thing to be clear on is which concrete material your element is defined as (normal vs lightweight and concrete strength). That's the one you'll want to revise. For the color, I don't believe you can make it halftone, but color 192 is a pretty good light gray. If you truly want the halftone look, you could override the graphics in the desired views to make them halftone, but this can be kind of tedious depending on how many elements you are trying to adjust. Another method of making this happen is adjusting the Visibility Graphics - turn the framing members to Halftone. Due note that this is global throughout the project, so it will turn all of your framing members halftone. Hope this has helped.

Hi.

I know this is an old post but I have the same problem with no solution. Have you resolved this issue?

 

If I change the cut pattern material color to grey and print grey scale all elements not black in my model get affected. And I have many.

If I do a filled region and do an overwrite graphic in view of that region I get exactly what I need. Black contour lines and grey cut pattern. The only thing is that after seeing how much time it took to do that for my whole project my boss offered me a long and neverending vacation. And I have mouths to feed.

 

So in simple terms can a cut pattern material be changed to print halftone?

See the attached images.  Choose your items by selecting individually, by category or create a filter, then change the fill color to your grey.

Thanks WWHub.

But my problem is not changing it to grey. It is printing it in grey. And that is not really the problem either.

 

If I print in greyscale the cut pattern prints grey. But so does all other items not black. Like my orange grids. And my green structural framing. And my blue columns. Printing greyscale prints in differents shades of grey everything not black in my model. So my plans look all kinds of funky if I print grey scale.

 

So if I rephrase my question, can I print a cut pattern grey or halftone without messing everything up?

Sorry, when you said over-ride graphic in view worked and it was grey, then I missed the grey issue.
