melissa-rickettsThu Jun 21, 2012 6:03 amI am creating wall sections and I want to change the fill pattern from drafting to model so I can minipulate the pattern. I selected a multitude of elements to change from rigid insulation to CMU and all were the same in the fact none could be changed into model pattern. Heres what I did; I slected an element, then went to the Paint Tool selected Surface Patterns, then Pattern, then Fill Patterns but it wont let me choose model. Is this possible?
Model patterns cannot be used for the cut pattern of materials. Try creating fill patterns for use in your details. Fill patterns can be made from a model pattern and rotated, however you will have to manually draw the filled regions and manage them if updates are needed.
