Hello,

I am changing the exterior horizontal siding finish to plaster. I would like to show the siding as demolished lines in the Filled region command, on my exterior elevations. How do I do this?

Could I change the linetypes in the Filled region pattern or create a new Filled region pattern with a demolished linetype?

Thank you in advance.

Hatch patterns do not rely on linetypes.  They are really a carry-over from very early plotters in that the commands are for a pen down / pen up.

The best way to do this is to duplicate the material to create a demo version and then switch out the foreground surface pattern to a demo hatch. Then in elevation you can paint the wall that is demolished with the new pattern. I have attached a .pat file with a horizontal demolished siding pattern for 4", 6" and 8" sizes.

Thank you. When I tried to open your hatch pattern, it did not dowmload it but opened it in RevitCity. Where could I find the *.pat file in the Revit system? I am trying to copy and paste it and create a new one. Thank you.

So you are saying I cannot change the paatern in the Revit library but have to paint it on the xteriro elevation, over the (E) siding?

Thank you.

Right click on the file and do a "save as". And yes you cannot simply change the linetype in revit as that is part of the hatch pattern and if you cahnge the hatch of the defaul wall type it will change for all walls of that type including walls that are not demolished and even ones placed in new construction phase. The best way to do what you want is to paint the areas that are demolished.
