I applied a 1 hour fire rating fill pattern in a wall to turn on when in course mode, it seems to work well with horizontal and vertical walls

My problem is:

I have a door family that i have a generic annotation family (this family has the 1 hour fill pattern as used above)

but when I insert the door in a vertical wall the fill pattern stays like its in the horizontal postition

any ideas?

Use a Detail Component family to create your filled region instead of Generic Annotation.  You need to use a MODEL pattern type instead of a DRAFTING pattern type and you cannot create a model pattern type using the generic annotation family.

Teafoe, that worked

but now i have another issue that someone can shed light to, lol

I used a detail component that that has my desired model fill pattern inserted into my door family. In the door family I have that fill pattern with a yes/no parameter and visibility to show only on course mode.

wehn inseted into project, course mode show my fill pattern appears on screen shaded

but if I change to thin lines, it shows correctly

Does it appear correct in the family?  Can you attach the door family so I can take a look at it?

It has to do with the scale of your fill pattern in your Detail Family.  It only shows at 1/16" and smaller, any bigger and it becomes one solid fill.

It is already set to the align with element setting. The problem now is the scale of the fill pattern.
