Currently I'm working on drafting a single story house with a walk out basement. I'm applying patterns to the walls to make it look as close to the real thing as possible for the elevation views. When I print, it won't print off the patterns with the walls, printing just white walls w/ windows and doors. Anybody got any ideas on how I'd be able to print the walls with the patterns applied to them?

If the patterns are hatches they won't show on your elevations. Hatches are 2d only. You can in a 3d view create a hatched area (polygon), convert it to a 3d poly and locate it just in front of the wall. It is then a 3d object. The alternative is to create a texture (for Renderworks) that has the line qualities you want however the problem with this is that joints between tops of walls and floors (or the walls of multiple floors) will still show. For my renderings I create a 1/4" thick extruded polygon with cutout for windows and doors that I mate up to the outside surface of the wall (like a giant piece of plywood) and apply the surface texture to this that I need. Feel free to email me with any questions.
