Cadro Pty Ltd
Fill Pattern Editor - HatchKit Demonstration Version and HatchKit Add-In for Autodesk® Revit® 2017.

General Usage Instructions

The HatchKit Add-In manages all aspects of the current project's fill patterns. View and edit a large pattern sample in a zoomable inspection window by double-clicking. Directly rescale or rotate patterns without reloading from external .PAT file.

Edit any pattern's name, type or orientation within the displayed list. Delete individual patterns (not SOLID) from the project or you may simply purge all unused patterns. Enable further functionality by installing HatchKit, depending on version.

The Add-In connects to the HatchKit utility to directly pass templates drawn in Revit and receive generated patterns. The Add-In also loads patterns from the new HatchKit Brick+Tile Wizard, patterns drawn entirely within HatchKit or patterns loaded from external .PAT files.

Any project pattern can also be exported to an external .PAT file via HatchKit. The HatchKit Add-In places no upper scale limitation on patterns it loads to Revit. Further detailed help is available online.
