“Hatch” disappears as it is exploded,

“Hatch” disappears as it is exploded,

 

I’m wondering why the hatch (attached) of AR-HBONE pattern name with a scale of 0.02 disappears as it is exploded.

 

 

 

What might be the issue?

 

 

Thank you

 

Best

Hi,

 

>> What might be the issue?

  • It's to dense to be displayed, therefor you see it as filled and hatches of type SOLID are also "eliminated" when exploded. (The difference to 2012 is that 2012 tells you "it's not explodable", but 2013 erases it completly, ...not fine).
  • It would create to many entities, at least more than AutoCAD might save in a drawing (and stay stable and performant)

 

The possible workarounds:

  • reduce the scale to e.g. 0.2, then it's explodeable and gives you the lines back.
  • zoom in to the hatch until you see the pattern (and not any more a sollid fill) and then try to explode it (but make sure first to have enough memory available).

Thank you Alfred for the answer. This is very useful.

 

I’ll see if the valuable workarounds fit well with what I’m looking for
