When I make a PDF the hatch pattern just doesnt print.

is it too small? also, when I import the pat file to make the hatch, it breaks when I try to make it larger in the scale factor part of the custom hatch settings. see the picture for info. incl hatch, kind of a rough stone pattern. 

 

how to make it print in a PDF setting is what I need to know. 

and no, I dont want to make a general basic hatch, as this is for a client presentation.

There is nothing in that pat file to say it's a model hatch.  Is that the pattern that is in the rvt view in your image?  I don't know how it could be if it is a drafting pattern.

 

What PDF driver are you using?   That could be your problem.

 

That a pretty large pattern file, that might be why it breaks when scaled.  A similar pattern here at RevitCity works if I remember right:

The issue with the scaling is that revit does not allow values in a pat file to be greater than 1000 or somewhere around there, not sure of exact number. In that file there is a number that is -305.695632 and so if you scale this up to more than 3 times that number will be greater than 1000 and break the pattern.

Ahhhh, great explanation. I looked at the file, lots of high value numbers like that.
