just want a patterned view dark lines in plan view – not using the 3d quick view
I presume you want to be able to print the output from a worksheet.
Why not using 3D Quickview? That’s the only way to achieve what you want, as far as I’m aware.
Ensure that in your model, the Roof Surface pattern (Line Work tab) is assigned to a suitable layer and lineweight is correctly set.
On your worksheet, DEFINE SMARTVIEW – VIEWPOINT tab – TOP – INSERTION=DRAWING – DISPLAY MODE=PATTERNED
A bit late but you can define the roof in sheet view and get the basic shape inserted on a sheet.
Then assign that brick pattern I described earlier in the Polygon hatch option. You have to do this by hand but it isn’t real time consuming.
Just snap the polygon tool to each corner and if needed on the right panel in sheet view adjust the angle. 90 deg works in most cases. You can also assign a new pattern scale there if the shingles look too big / small.
