I have created a short tower that has a circle shape in floor plan.  I then created a round roof that comes to a point in the top center.  Is there a way to get a model fill pattern to display on my 3D views and elevations?  I want it to read as asphalt shingles like the rest of my roof forms.  See my attached image...Thanks.

I have been having this same problem as well. It will render with the pattern, but it won't look right either. Anyone who could help with this would be a lifesaver...or maybe we need to put it into the wishlist for revit 10!

Hate to be the one giving you the news, but hatch patterns can't be applied on rounded roofs.

 

Only way I found was to post process with Photoshop, which is a pathetic workaround.

You can edit the sketch, and change the coned roof to a segmented roof (which is how it will be built anyways) in the properties of the arc sketch line.  The more segments you make, the smoother the curve will be, but there will be more radial lines extending from the tip of the cone to the eave.  Then the pattern will show up on the roof.

hmmm, that's interesting scott. I like that. I suppose you could use the invisible linework tool to get rid of the lines to the ridge. hmmm......the wheels are turning.

 

thanks scott

Scott,

Thanks for the post, that actually works quite well for the turret roof I have been working on.

I am more interested in the final rendering, as I usually just 2d hatch it in autocad after I am finished with the design. Its not perfect, but it is considerable better and more realistic looking than what the render did with the old turret roof.

Thanks a bunch for the help, I am now off to work on this and see how good I can get it to look!
