Hi everyone,

I'm new to Revit and new to this community as well, plus English isn't my first language so please bare with me.

I'm working with Revit Architecture 2017.

I created a hexagonal wall pattern in the conceptual massing place with the help of the Metric Generic Model Pattern Based family. It is a curtainwall with a steel mesh front of the curtain wall. Both pattern of the curtainwall and the mesh is identical (please see the attached snaps).

What I would like to do is to colour the mesh with 2 different colours front of the curtainwall so that I could draw a dividing line which follows the pattern.

How can I do that?

This is how I'd like to colour that wall pattern I created: along a dividing line that follows the pattern. And obviously just the mesh fron of the curtain wall.

You would have to split the wall along that line and add a different model material on each side.

Hi WWHub, thanks for the reply. I did that - that was my first initial though - but the problem is that the pattern is breaking up.

I can't fit them... any thoughts?

The pattern is not breaking up.   Assuming these materials are built correctly with an associated 2D pattern, and you will probably have to move them to match up correctly on the line working in a normal elevation view.   NOT 3D!.

Could you please describe how I should do that? I tried everything I could, searched and searched all over the internet but I haven't been able to find any relevant information about the problem i'm haveing.

I also found out that the reason why my pattern breaks up because I cut the original wall in two parts along that line so these are functioning as two induvidual wall above each other and both calculates their pattern from a different point. Is there a way I could solve this problem?

Your material should have a model pattern assigned to it that is locked to the 3D material image.  Open an elevation  view - shaded - you will see your model pattern.  This is what you would have used to cplit face the wall material.  Follow the instructions below to move the material - NOT THE WALL.

I'm sorry, I tried to do it but no luck. Do you mind to take a look at my files? This is what I created so far...

I looked back at your originl post and I think I misunderstood your process.   My advice was based on a standard type of wall.

 

I will have to defer to someone else that can help you here.  Sorry

i dont know if i got your question right but if you need to separate 2 part with 2 different colors , you can make 2 types of the curtain panel each with a different material and assign each type on the designated area of the wall , but you will be constained with the spacings of the panels 

 

hope this helps

Did you try to copy & paste to same location (duplicate), and edit the boundary to have 2 complementary walls. Then override the graphics of the 2 walls?
