I am defining a wall family for my project in revit 2008. It is a 8 1/2" precast wall with 6" of precast and the rest is sprayed insulation. two very basic questions:

1) on the exterior the precast has score lines vertically and horizontally and i am trying to define it the wall family since its occurence in both directions is quite consistent from the precast edge. Can I do it in both directions and how.

2) the precast has a haunch at its edges i.e. it is fatter and angled at the edge - wherever there is a punched opening, can that be defined as a wrap ( see attached file, thanks) or how else to acheive that

1)  If you cannot find a pattern in the Revit materials menu, then you can create one of your own patterns.  You could also find a hatch pattern in AutoCAD that would fit your needs.  Once you get the pattern just apply it to your surface and section of your wall elements.

2)  Is that drawing a section or plan?  Is it a single panel?

1) what you suggested seems like a great idea! i'll try it right away, but i was wondering when i am editing the strucutre of the wall, can i put horizontal/vertical sweeps to show the score lines on the precast

2) that is in plan, yes it is one panel, can it be done by wrapping. also actaully it is a hollowed out precast material so even the section is similar

If you would like to use a sweep for the pattern then you would most likely have to create your own profile to fit what you need.  Once you create and save this profile then you will load it while your sweeps window is open.  I think the surface / cut patterns are much quicker and easier, but it your project.

I have not played with the wrapping tool much, but you could paste that ACAD file into a Revit profile template and use it as a vertical sweep.  Then you can add texture and material to it.
