When creating sections in projected views or on the base drawing, AutoCAD seems to randomly generate the hatching. I want to make it so like shapes or materials have the same hatching in the same drawing. Preferrably, materials would always hatch the same way. Is there a way to assign hatching to materials in the materials library? Im in autocad2013.
I think you are trying to mix apples and oranges.
Materials are commonly used with 3D objects while hatch patterns are commonly used with 2D objects.
If you create a section of a solid object you're creating a 2D object so AutoCAD, understandably, hatches it.
You can create multiple Section Styles and assign a different hatch there. Make sure that style is active when sectioning. The Materials Library will have nothing to do with this feature.
