  3. You may have to unblock the dll file prior to using.

  4. If you don't, you might get an error message similar to this

    Revit cannot run the external application "{xxxxxx}".
    Contact the provider for assistance. Information they
    provided to Revit about their identity: mertens3d,
    http://mertens3d.com.
     

    System.IO.FileLoadException

    Could not load file or assembly
    ‘file:///C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\…\{xxxxx}.dll’
    or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported (Exception
    from HRESULT: 0X80131515)

     

    Instructions for Unblocking the DLL
    • Right Click on the DLL
    • Click Properties
    • Under the General tab, click on the Unblock button

     

     

     

  5. Test. When you restart Revit, a "mertens3d" button should have been added to your Revit dialog under the add-ins tab. Under that pulldown should be the hatch22 button.

  6. Contact me here if you have any problems. Feedback
