Hi, When I plot a drawing with a transparent solid hatch within this drawing, it plots with horizontal lines across the hatch pattern as shown on attached file. I know there is a work round by using a gradient hatch with the two colours set as the same, but is there any fix to stop this happening with a solid hatch pattern? (using a solid gradient transparent hatch has caused another issue as it seems to have problems pdf'ing with dwg to pdf.pc3, as mentioned on another post) This problem with the Transparent solid hatch happens when plotting to any plotter or PDF device and also with our pen settings set and no pen settings. Problem happens in LT2012 & LT2014.
Thanks in advance!
It is probably caused by the plotter, and not autocad itself.
Try plotting at higher quality. There is an option for plot quality in the autocad plot window.
At the default 'normal' setting my plotter allso leaves those lines, but not at 'maximum'.
Hope this helps.
Agree with the DPI for the PDF. You will need to drill down into the PC3 file for DWG to PDF.pc3 to up the DPI.
