Show drywall sheets in Revit with a simple hatch pattern - Tutorial

Let's take this to a whole other level.  Let's make a new generic wall and edit a fill pattern that has a line spacing of 4' vertically and 8' horizontally this showing you 4 x 8 sheets of drywall.  Now you can place doors and windows at the exact perfect spots to cut the drywall and window framing.

I suppose we could make vertical lines spaced every 18" to show stud layouts as well.  Of course, when you're done with the layout, you can place the regular wall types.

I wonder how this could be used in Navisworks for coordination and layout.  Anyone know how to just show hatch patterns in course mode, but not in medium or fine modes?



Screen capture of Revit from the settings above.

Here's a screen shot of 18" spacing.  Great for stud layouts.
