I am looking for a add-in or program or macro that helps me quickly convert my acad hatch patterns to Revit fill patterns. as of right now I am having to go into every ACAD (.pat) text file and add the line of text that designates whether its model or drafting pattern. I was hoping there is something out there that would streamline or shorten this process?

HatchKit will do that for you via the pattern TYPE attribute within HatchKit itself or via the dropdown within the project pattern list displayed by the free HatchKit Add-In for Revit.

so this hatchkit can expedite the process of having to open every existing ACAD.pat (text file) in our office library and manually copy/ paste the text line of ;%TYPE=DRAFTING or ;%TYPE=MODEL.

we have many hatch patterns in ACAD and feel it would be really time consuming to go the cop/paste method

You can write a simple bat file to do this.

Only TYPE = MODEL  require modification as TYPE = DRAFTING is the default.

 

The HatchKit Add-In presents a list of the patterns currently loaded to a particular project allowing the fill names, types and orientations to be managed within that project.

 

When the HatchKit editor is saving patterns to Revit that lack explicit TYPE or UNIT assignment  - such as those sourced from AutoCAD and elsewhere - it will add the currently setup Revit defaults to the saved fill definition file.
