In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how to change and remove unwanted hatching.
- [Instructor] Once again we're staying in our…03_OFFICE_ReceptionArea drawing, and what we're going to…look at this time as we manage the properties…of our CAD drawing before we bring it into Revit…is hatching.…Now hatching can be quite contentious.…Do you need hatching when you're bringing…a CAD drawing into Revit?…My personal view is no, you don't really need it.…You don't actually need anything hatched at all…because the whole idea is you're developing off of…the 2D CAD drawing in a 3D Revit environment,…so hatching becomes null and void because obviously…you're working with 3D families in Revit…that already have their own material and display properties.…
Now if you look at this particular drawing you see…that there is some hatching already on the drawing itself.…Now my suggestion would be that we actually…remove that hatching.…We don't actually need it, so the trick would be…to go in and find all the elements that are hatched.…Now what you could do here is hover over the hatching…like so, and you can see that it's all…
