Help! I broke my pattern

User question: "How do you make a smooth, continuously divided pattern across multiple surfaces"

The problem here is that Revit does one divided surface per face, so you can't identify multiple faces and have a uniform pattern across them all by default. This video demonstrates a method for using the divided surface properties to even out your pattern.


  1. Hi Zach,

    First of all, I am one of your fan and I find your revit lessons very interesting and I learned many things from these short tutorials that you have created. So I wanted to thank you.
    Since you are talking about the pattern, I have one question for you which I have been trying find a solution for a long time. Is there any way to show a fire wall symbol (dash line) on an architectural project? I know that I can not change the wall family because it is a system family but I can at least add this line (pattern) manually after I finish the project. The crazy thing is that line has to follow the wall without breaking the pattern. I hope you have some answers if it is not a big trouble for you. I would be very appreciated if you can give me an answer.
