Anybody have an idea of how to create a linetype as part of the center of a wall that shows a fire rating... dash dot dash for a 1 -1/2 hour wall, for example?

I have tried creating a material in the center of the all and using a hatch pattern but you can't control the results well enough to get the line to show up predictably. I don't want to draw model lines or drafting lines for the view.... and they aren't flexible enough, anyway.

TIA

get a hatch generator.  Any pattern you can think of for noteing fire tape, finishes, and wall patterns.  For fire tape the dash dot works well as a model pattern generated to work at a certain scale.  Hope this helps.

Thanks. I have tried the hatch pattern solution where the coarse wall pattern is the fire rated hatch pattern. I don't find that this works particularly well since we like to have black walls in the coarse setting for preliminary and graphic plans. I may be able to get one to work in a cut material hatch, but it seems that it only shows up at certain drawing scales which is not what we want this for. We need for it to show up in fire safety plans which are often at 1/16"= 1'.

which is more important, information or standard.  keeping the hatch in the wall helps to eliminate human error of having to apply a fire tape around the wall.  I've attached a pic of what we managed to achieve using the coars scale fill pattern.

Our fire-rated walls are a separate type made of wall core with a material given a hatch pattern to produce the dash pattern needed...same way we denote smoke partitions and sound attentuation walls. These hatch patterns show up on every page, though, so it depends on your office standard and it's flexibility. I posted a more detailed explanation here:
