Arbitrary hatch angles on a repeated pattern of parts.

I have a louver with 7 blades, pattern starts from the bottom up...this view from the top down better shows the discrepancy however.

 

You can see, it seems like every other blade is hatched in a different direction...ideally the 2nd one down is what I'd like to see...but even blades 1 and 3...while differing from 2 and 4, don't seem to share the same odd angle?

 

See attached.

Hatching in Inventor is a bit of a PITA if you don't like the automated hatch.

In this case you need to pick each individual one to align it to your requirements.

You should be able to select them all and operate on them together - or use a 'Match properties' type command to match em all up ~sigh~
