Revit has problems applying a consistant model surface pattern to a curved wall sweep.  The attached image shows three wall sections - two streight and one curved each with the Shake pattern at different directions.  My firm designs lots of houses with this curved sweep wall base and I need to find a way to make it work.  Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

 

Thank you so much!

The attached image shows an exterior wall with cedar shingle surface pattern.  The wall has a sweep with same shingle pattern but the orientation is rotated 180 degrees so that it is not possible to align the patterns in elevation view.  Paint tool does that same thing.  Can anyone help me reverse the direction of the surface pattern so I can apply to sweep to see if that solves the problem?  Here is the surface pattern of wall.  The pattern has verticle lines offset at 7", 4", 4" 4" & 5",   I need a duplicate pattern that has vertical lines offset of 5", 4", 4", 4" & 7".  Any other work around ideas are welcome.

I thank you in advance!

There is no way to control this on a sweep that I have seen.

This may, or may not work for you, but when you cut your sweep with a void (in the same sketch mode), the pattern will fix itself.

pijpiwo,

Can you be more specific on how I can go about cutting wall sweep with void while in sketch mode?  The attached screenshot shows all the potential solutions I could thing of with no good results.

Thanks

When creating your wall sweep, before you hit the green check mark to exit the sketch mode, go to create tab and make a void form and cut your wall sweep. You can use an extrusion, or a sweep, doesn’t matter. Take a look at the attached file. I made a void sweep in the back of the wall.

pijpiwo,

This would seem to be a neat workaround.   Understanding how it works helps.   The pattern always works with 'normal' square forms.   By creating the form as a rectangle first, the material is assigned correctly, then the void cuts the shape.

 

I've not read about this before.   Did you come up with the process?

I’ve read about it on another forum some time ago. I think it was Steve Stafford’s post, but I’m not positive.

…neat indeed.
