I am looking to address the Plywood detail component once and for all. The goal is a detail component that shows parallel lines at 1/8" to represent the plies, and then groups of three diagonal lines at a regular spacing as in traditional plywood hatching. The plies are "model" in that they are at real 1/8", so at any scale 5/8" plywood would show four of these lines, or (5) 1/8" plies. But the diagonals would be a "drafting" pattern, in that they should be the same across multiple scales.
I can get the diagonals to work fine, but no luck on the plies. I tried a Model Pattern with 1/8" spacing and Revit blows up because the spacing is too small. Tried 1/4" too, still to small. I also tried an array of lines. I can get the first line locked to the two ref planes in a Detail Component - Line Based family. But when I array that line the others are not connected? And if I go to edit another line in the group and try to lock that one everything blows up. This latter seems exceedingly problematic, as I can see needing to array lines locked to a pair of ref plains in other situations as well. Some model lines representing a walk-off mat come to mind.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
