DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE SURFACE PATTERN LINE WEIGHT I HAVE LOOKED IN OBJECT STYLES AND UNDER WALL THERE IS NOTHING FOR SURFACE PATTERN. I LOOKED UNDER VV AND THERE YOU CAN ONLY TURN THE SURFACE PATTERN ON OR OFF, AND IF I CHANGE COMMON EDGES TO A THICKER LINE THE SURFACE PATTERN ALSO CHANGES. WHAT I WANT IS FOR THE EDGES OF THE WALLS TO COME OUT DARKER THAN THE SURFACE PATTERN

I am looking for an answer to this as well.  I even tried to change the color of the lines to gray and it did not change anything in the appearance.  2010.   Help would be appreciated

Thanks,

AAron

If you would just read the threads below:

Per Mr. Spot - "You can only control fill pattern line weights on filled regions...The best you can achieve for floors would be using different shades of grey to get the variations...  Annoying I know.  But realistically I find I don't need this ability very often."

Has a fix been found for this.  Our suface patters seem to show way too thick.  It would be great if they would read as a 1 line weight.

Something I have found that works halfway well is to right click on the item in question, select override graphics in view, select by element, then select half tone or even play with the surface pattern color to a lighter gray.  I am using 2013. Does this help?

I beleive i have found a "solution" to my issue, hopefully it helps other people.  We were trying to get the surface pattern overridden in the view and the lineweights were showing way too thick, creating an almost solid gray pattern.  For some reason if you chance the material properties (in our case it was 'Concrete- cast in place concrete') so that it has a surface pattern is 'solid white' instead of 'no surface pattern',  the hatch shows thin a thin line weight.

 

 

UPDATE: This no longer works in Revit 2014.   Anyone found anything else
