I have created a stair with irregular geometry that has a 3" parallel model pattern on it to represent a wood floor. However, I seem to be unable to rotate or align this pattern and as you can see from the attached screenshot, the pattern is not coming in parallel to the stair treads.

Is there any way to control the orientation or surface patterns when the material is applied to a stair tread?

I believe if you click on to your tread, edit type, select tread material, and under the graphics tab there is an alignment button for surface patterns

That alignment button only seems to give me control over how the render material aligns with the surface pattern.

The model pattern and material pattern orientation are typically locked together.

You may have found a bug so send it to autodesk.

See if this works. Select your tread, under your properties select tread material, now under the graphics tab go to surface pattern, select your pattern, with it being selected click on to edit, then from there you will be in the modify pattern properties, half way down it should be highlighted "simple" (if not select it), from there below that under simple, there is line angle. Change your angle there. Hope that works for you

I am pretty sure it's a drafting pattern. Go ahead change the pattern to model pattern (you can view help topics as to how to make the same pattern to model pattern) and you should be able use the align tool to align the pattern the way you want. I hope this helps.

It is definitely a model pattern, not a drafting pattern. I am using the exact same material on several floors in the project and it behaves correctly (can be rotated, moved, aligned) on those elements.

Like WWHub said it's either a bug or maybe you can attach your pattern file so I can test on my end.

oneworld, thanks for offering to help. I've attached screenshots showing the settings. Because the pattern is just parallel lines it doesn't show up in the .pat file but the attached screenshots show both the properties for the stair and the material/pattern attributes for material that's assigned to the treads.

I'm curious to see if the problem occurs for you as well.

Now I completely understand your issue. I guess mine was a vague suggestion before. Sorry about that. So revit is considering the whole stair to have one pattern. This is what I acheived till now. I will think about this on my way back home. Interesting .. good that I have time now so I don't have to worry later when I face the issue.

Your only solution for now may be two seperate stair runs.
