the accurender material doesn't sync up with the hatch pattern they are 2 totaly sep. things.
So you have to adjust the accurender materials offset within the material editor, try from your image to guess how far off it is and then input that into the material properies, ie. x =.5 and y= .25 note that the units in the material editor are in decimal feet.

Thank you very much, I corrected this and now it looks ok! I must say that these two things should work together...

agreed. where it fails completely is if you are say rendering and open office with satilite office arround it and they all have a 2x2 or 2x4 grid, but they are oriented diff. in each room, you can't get them all to line up, without creating a sep ceiling material and type for each room. Luckly that doesn't happen to often.
