Surface Pattern Alignment

Surface Pattern Alignment

i suggest to enhance the Surface pattern (model pattern) alignment in revit, 

to give the ability of doing the align option or move on the surface pattern (model pattern) on the wall "in elevation" when the wall is a curve or an ellipse in the plan. 

Not applicable

in curved building we need to create curved floor pattern or curved ceiling which have to spent a lot of time to draw it manually  

so, we need hatch to be enhanced to match the need of curved building

many thanks

Congrats! We think this is a great idea, so we've decided to add it to our roadmap. Thanks for the suggestion!


To follow the progress of features in development, please see the Revit Public Roadmap and join the Revit Preview Release to participate in feature testing.


The Factory


Provide the ability to align surface patterns to curves. Ie floor tiles around an elliptical opening. It may need to be a new type of pattern to allow it to function properly, almost like an array along a path. 

This would be especially useful for detailed interior tiling plans.
