    you have to have the original text file of the pat to change the numbers. But you should be able to modify these as needed.

    Wherever there is a 24 change to your desired spaceing ie 12 for 12" and wherever there is a 48 change it to 72 if you had a 12 x 72 pattern or whatever

    It worked great, thanks, amazing how Revit hasn't figured out how to do demo ceilings.

    It demos ceilings the same way it does everything. It doesn't demo fill patterns on anything. Ceilings are obvious but its the same issue for a brick wall... Materials using patterns and assigned to elements by type demand a unique type to define demolition.

    Further complicating it is the sketch based approach to ceilings (and roofs). When we demo some of a ceiling we have to take care to create ceilings discreetly so the portions that must be demolished can be altered separately. Its not very different from splitting a long wall into shorter segments so portions of the wall can be demolished.
