I need to create a cellulose insulation pattern for an area fill and planned to use something similar to a bunch of circles like small rocks.

Are there patterns stored in Revit and, if so, where might one find them?

There is not really a file of patterns in Revit.  What Revit has in stock is typically what you see using one of the original templates.   Beyond that, you should create your own library of patterns and add what you want in your template but you don't want everything there. 

  • You can find some in the downloads. 
  • You can find some in similar threads in the forum area
  • You can learn how to modify existing patterns to create your own.
  • You can use something like hatchkit

Start by researching your HELP.

Filled patterns only reside in the project and not from an external PAT file like AutoCAD. You can create new simple fill patterns from the avaialble options but nothing like what you want.

 

You can import PAT files however when you make a new revit fill pattern. So find a CAD PAT file thats close, edit it and then import that into revit. * And Note the 'Model' vs 'Drafting' (annotative)  aspect of the new fill pattern vs PAT file.

 

Or get HatchKit I guess.

 

To creating that PAT file from scratch will prove extremely challenging.
