    "Weave" hatch would be the most efficient if you have it, otherwise it's a pretty simple array.

    The real challenge would be to write the hatch pattern definition. All the rest is easy.

    The problem is, that after eating with their hands, they then try to change the TV chanel by swiping over the screen, just like on the I-pad

    how could I tell that Laurence was getting taller?

    he could reach different channel change buttons!

    (remember them?)

    Weird. I was thinking about these the other day. I was playing with a set of Siemens PLCs and the little plastic hinge on the front reminded me of the plastic flaps you used to get on TVs that you had to open to access the buttons

But you are correct it is a good exercise for learning offset and trim, or even figuring out the 4 lines that are repeated and just doing copy and paste.
    I never meant to imply that I was, I thought that went without saying.
    No offense taken whatsoever, it was on the spur of the moment, and only a small area.
    Had I deemed it something I would do another time, I would have spent a few more minutes
    and figured out a better way to do it, of which a number of good suggestions have already been made in this thread.
    Thanks for the .pat file.
    I like the WEAVE hatch suggestion from nestly, will have to see if I have that too.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.

    I quite liked the idea of the array with the basic pattern, doesn't neccesarily have to be a block, but a nice idea
