Set an origin for fills

Postby PavPev » Mon Apr 13, 2015 3:37 pm

I am a Revit novice, having previously used 3DS Max and AutoCAD before, so go gentle on me!

I would like to know if it's possible to set an 'origin' for a surface pattern? I'm trying to line up some tricky brickwork on a curtain wall panel and the surface pattern sort of begins half way through a brick?!

I know with AutoCAD you could set an origin for hatching, can a similar thing be done in Revit, if so how?
