Revit Arch 2013 print with no hatch patterns.

I currenly made the change to Revit Architecture 2013 and enjoy the new features (not many, but a few). I do alot of work for school where i plot camera views in hidden line and hand render from there... sometimes its a nicer look. anyway for some reason i can not print the hatch patterns that appear on my screen. I have tried printing in raster rather than vector and that did not work. I need the hatch patterns to print, if i cant i will go back to 2012 but i cant transfer the model back because Revit does not have a save as 20** option. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sometimes if the hatch pattern is too small in the view

it won't print. Just like sometimes you can't see it unless

you zoom in.

can you go into the properties of hatch patter/filled region and check the properties of line spacings. also see attached image.

I appreciate the information, but the hatch pattern that is not printing is the wood shake pattern. It is not a simple crosshatch, but a .pat file.

Got the same issues, model hatches will not print (or preview) when Print Range is set as Current Window or Selected Views/Sheets. But it works if Visible portion of current window is selected. I have brought this up with my supplier & am awaiting a result.

Same issue directly after upgrade to 2013. 

-Hatch patterns print in Hidden Line mode but do not in Consistent Colors. 

-Same issues PDF or hard copy.

 

Great part is I can't downgrade the project back to when things were working properly... THANKS!
