    Has anyone effectively aligned or adjust a model surface hatch pattern applied to a surface of an extruded solid. Walls, ceilings and floors all work fine but for some reason solids are a different animal. The atached jpeg shows a dimension I would like to be 0" as opposed to 55/64" as shown. Any ideas????

    Edited:
    Now I see it, though it is very small and barely perceptible from that pov.

    Select the solid and goto edit family. then align the hatch and select finish family. the hatch pattern can only be edited in edit family mode.Sorted

    So, I am trying to figure out how to align the hatch pattern on the standard Rectangular Column family that ships with Revit. I have used this column in a project as a CMU column, but the hatch pattern won't align on it. I have verified that the hatch pattern is a model pattern, so don't even ask

    Should I make a new family that is just for Masonry Columns, apply the pattern and be the insert it? What gives?

    Greg I tried on both standard and structural. Doesn't seem to work on either. I had same Problem, eventually did Filled Region over it, which is not what we want!!

    Same problem here with the metric version of the Rectangular Column family.

    I tried other surface patterns also, but still broke.

    Another one for support to look at.

    I am typing. There are no lips involved. At least not on this website...


    I don't know what that means. Sorry.

    The problem I have with putting the material definition (and therefore the hatch pattern) in the column family is that the alignment may not be right in evey case depending on where in the wall the column is...so the hatch will essentially be aligned but will repeat on some walls. I am going to live with it for now and hope that a workaround comes by the time CDs are needed...

    Guess I'll be contacting Revit Support tomorrow...again...

    It's another quote from the same book/movie..."The Princess Bride".
