    Default Insulation hatch

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Anyone have a hatch for the curvy lines usually associated with insulation?

    Or send me to a tutorial where I can make my own if you so choose

    How about a linetype? AutoCAD has a linetype named BATTING.

    I created a LISP routine to load the linetype and draw a line that has the correct scale based on the insulation size and drawing scale...I can give it to you, if you want...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't run LISP routines in AutoCAD LT correct?

    But I will search for that linetype...I didn't even think to check that. Thanks

    That's cool...I found the linetype, and scaling the line down wasn't a problem at all. Another problem solved on the cadtutor forums!

    Can you at least give us a little information about what the problem is? Is it a problem with a hatch pattern or a problem with a lisp routine or a problem with a linetype or a problem with scaling?

    hi,
    I use Batting a lot for my insulation sections - I just opened that attachment and all I got was a page full numbers - lots of numbers.
    Is there something else I shopuld do to it or have I got something set wrong?

    cheers,

    Smudger
