Rigid Insulation Hatch Pattern

1303 Views, 5 Replies

I am looking for a hatch pattern used as a standard in our area for rigid
insulation. I don't believe it is part of the OOTB acad.pat. I have posted
a file in the cf newsgroup with the same name that shows the particular
pattern I am looking for. Could someone lend it to me or tell me where I
can find it?

tia,

check out this link - http://www.caddepot.com/dcd/Autodesk/Hatching/index-2.html - and download something called "Hatch Pattern Capture". (i haven't used it yet, but it sounds like just the thing to use in these situations!)

Since you have a .dwg file that includes the hatch pattern, you can capture
the pattern definition to a new .pat file with GETPAT.LSP from

Thanks Paul. I was able to use the routine to capture the pattern but the
start point of the pattern is a little screwy -- it's off by about half the
width of the pattern which ends up giving me something that doesn't look
like I want it to. Is there a way to "offset" a hatch pattern and have it
start at a different spot?

thanks.

Or SNAPBASE, pick your origin point, then HATCHEDIT>OK to update the hatch
already created.
