Let's say you download a Revit project file that has a bunch of walls/floors/ceilings with model patterns on them. You copy those into your project. Everything is great except you want to change the scale of those model patterns.

Which leads to my question... where can you find those model patterns to now re-import it?

Only the pattern definition is loaded, there is no associated txt file.   Sorry - you need a txt file to change the scale.

That's crazy that something can be in your project that was created from a .txt file but there is no way for you to source it. curse. Thanks anyway WW!

The HatchKit Add-In for Revit exports patttern definitions from Revit via HatchKit directly to text .PAT files.

If the purpose is to resize the patterns then this can be done within HatchKit and the rescaled patterns imported directly to Revit.

Yes I'd agree that it's a shame you have to spend $90 for the Hatchkit add-on just to edit a pattern. I hope the upgrades are free when the new REVIT version comes out. Especially when you only use the tool a couple times a year.

Hi dgcad,

 

Thank you for the opportunity to clear up some confusion.

>Yes I'd agree that it's a shame you have to spend $90 for the Hatchkit add-on just to edit a pattern.

HatchKit is not an add-in for Revit.  It is a standalone hatch pattern editor available for many differing CAD systems.

There is no compulsion to purchase a licence, simply a value proposition like Revit itself apart from any necessity to purchase annual versions to keep up with changing file formats. That one-time price provides three installations. We offer other forms of license to address differing requirements, but only the Demonstration Version is free.  No other package graphically edits patterns.

>I hope the upgrades are free when the new REVIT version comes out. Especially when you only use the tool a couple times a year.

You hope correctly. Again, HatchKit currently offers perpetual licenses and will work alongside any Revit version. HatchKit and Revit can connect via a free add-in where one is available. Our add-ins for Revit 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 are freely available from Autodesk's Exchange and from our website. We plan to provide an add-in for Revit 2017, again for free.

And if you seldom need to use it, you may find its relearning curve shorter than the method that you linked to.

So is it an add-in or not ? and what does it cost ?

HatchKit is not an add-in. HarchKit.exe is is a stock-standard Win32 PE executable file, licensed as described on the website below my signature.

The four current versions of the quite separate HatcKit Add-in for Revit 2013 through 2016 connect Revit to your licensed Hatchkit. The Add-ins are provided totally free of cost and contain some fill management functionality such as being able to change a fill type from DRAFTING to MODEL or viceversa as well as acting as a HatchKit connector.

But you need not install an Add-in to run HatchKit. In fact Revit LT users cannot. Revit 2012 users cannot.

Nor do you need install HatchKit to run the HatchKit Add-In for Revit to pick up on its embodied fill management tools.

 

hope this helps.
