i am a long time acad & ADT user have been using Revit for 3 months now.  I am really glad that i am drawing walls, windows & doors etc. instead of drawing lines and pretend that they are walls, windows & doors etc.anyway, i am trying to play with some floor tile patterns for my home project and couldn't seem to get it completely right, or maybe i am going about it completely wrong.first i tried a simple 13"x13" tile pattern by drawing lines and using filled region (tile by tile) to distinguish different tile colors.  i was able to modify the grout line to wherever i wanted to meet corners, aligning to cabinet bases, etc.but suddenly it hit me, why am i doing this manually?  i joke to myself, "nothing should be done manually in Revit, curse it!"so i tried to play with filled region with the entire floor space and picked the 3d pattern "12" tile" and realized that i can't move the pattern (like "snapbase" and update hatch patter in cad) and i have no idea how to distinguish different tile colors.meanwhile, my tiles are 13"x13" not 12" by 12" how in the world can i change the pattern?anyway, i can do this very easily in cad, but i am also stubborn.  so any Revit guru here would shed some light on how to go about creating floor pattern or even different design options for floor patterns would be greatly appreciated.

You can actually associate your tile pattern in your roof object by assigning surface pattern in the material editor dialog box then try to use the model pattern instead of drafting pattern. Model patern can be align to edges of your slab object and it will move while maintaining the same distance from each tile. If you want to create crazy pattern of your tile with different colors etc that's where split face and paint tool come in handy.

Hope this helps
