    Default HOW TO CREATE SPANISH ROOF TILE MODEL PATTERN

    Does anyone know how to create or have an Spanish roof tile model pattern? I can't find one in my library and if I import the one from AutoCAD it won't work as a model fill. Any Ideas?

    Did you check the RUGI site? I believe they have a Spanish Tile pattern you can download. I took the Spanish Tile pattern I had in AutoCad and pasted it into the revit.pat file.
    Or you can do an advanced search of this forum & there are tuns of spanish tile pats

    You just need to convert your .pat file to a model by adding the following code infront of it, see the revit.pat file for the explanation.

    ; The name may contain any ASCII characters except for comma. They are shown in the list of
    ; imported patterns. The comma and comment are optional. They are ignored by Revit. The header
    ; may be followed by one of the following type directives:
    ;
    ; ;%TYPE=DRAFTING or
    ; ;%TYPE=MODEL
    ;
    ; If neither directive is present, Revit assumes that it is a drafting pattern.

    Here are all of my .pat files, there are many spanish tiles to chose from, some are in the acad.pat files and have allready had the %TYPE=Model added to them.

    Hi Scott,

    Could you write the steps how to import .pat to revit and the next steps to use it as a pattern for roof tiles.

    Thanks
