Please tell me I am missing something, (which I hope is the case).  We are trying to hatch or in photoshop (paint bucket) the ground plane (grass, roads, pavement) in revit.  The only way we have found is the “filled region”, this requires pick each line that defines the filled region vs. the AutoCAD or photoshop way of clicking in the space and in fills to the defining lines.  The revit way reminds me of AutoCAD version 9 that I worked on 15 years ago.  Please show me where we have strayed.

What i tend to do is split the sufaces (topographies), and then chnge the materials for each individual surface.

Dunno if anyone else has a better way to do this.

 

Split Surface:

- Under Site, Select the Split surface tool

- Select the surface to split

- define the first division (you can only split a surface in two parts) 

- Repeat the above until you have all the surfaces you need.

- Apply materials to your surfaces

 

Hope thats helpfull.

 

I know that in Revit Architecture 2008 slabs can be set to fall in multiple directions (by using points) so that might be a way to do pathways quite effectively.

I prefer subregions to split surfaces that way if the contour needs the change you can edit everything at once.  With split regions you have to edit each region individually which can result in gaps between each surface.
