Went to Eldorado Stone and tried to use their hatch patterns but the files were too large.  Do you guys have a source for usable hatch patterns for Revit?  The Mountain Ledge pattern is the one I'm looking for.

Have you looked in the downloads here?  Or looked into the Hatch22 add-in?

Some hatch pattern generators can create unneccesarily large files by a runaway algoithm respecifying the same line at different locations, discussed here: http://hatchkit.com.au/faq_detail.php?id=9

The Eldorado Mountain Ledge pattern file contains over 20,000 pattern line definitions. We can obtain an equivalent pattern of just 58 lines by automatically removing redundant definitions using a future feature of HatchKit. As the pattern appears to been expressed in feet,  upscaling by 12 in HatchKit obtains a pattern expressed in inches suitable for importing to Revit at 1:1 scale.

Search in revitcity, there are around 70 of them. Lots of stone ones too. Search for stone or hatch or Pattern You can buy hatch kit and make your own. Or search on tinternet for pat files - pattern files.

I just get a text file.  What am I doing wrong?

That is exactly what a pattern file is..... A text file.  Save it then in Revit, create that pattern using that file.

The file has to be saved as a .pat file and it has to be simple txt - no formatting.

Select "Model" as the import pattern type within the import wizard and the patten name should appear in its selection listbox.

You can select multiple hatch pattersn from revitcity's library. Up to a maximum of 10. Select a few and then download them - it will download to you as a zip file. In the zip file will be the .pat file. Pplace the .pat files in a folder near your central file ( for easy reference) and then in revit create a new hatch and import through the hatch editor in revit the .pat file.
