    Unhappy Brick and mortar hatching nightmare

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi I am trying to create a specific hatch for bricks and mortar. I have no problem creating the standard brick hatch but when I try to put mortar around the bricks that is when I get unstuck!

    my horizontal lines and spaces appear to be okay but my vertical lines are all over the place, very confusing!!

    I have attached my workings (have not yet got to the 4th line of code though!)if anyone can see anything that may help I would very much appreciate it!!!!

    I think you had the repeat spacing and the dash space not correct. This seems to work.

    Code:
    *MYBRICK, Custom brick and mortar
    0, 0,0, 110,70, 215,-5
    0, 0,65, 110,70, 215,-5
    90, 0,0, 70,110, 65,-75
    90, 215,0, 70,110, 65,-75
    If you want to use it as a standalone file, then choose a shorter heading, which MUST be the same as the name of the file. If you add it to acad.pat or acadiso.pat, then you might loose it when you update.

    Hi

    Thanks for that, I think I sorted out - I seemed to have doubled up on some of my vertical lines??!! but it works now!!
