    There are issues in the boundary command caused by the dashed bend lines around the perimeter of what I guess is the bottom of the "box". This causes some "two piece" void areas.

    Another issue is that somebody deleted the left side boundary line from one of the hatched stripes. That is the one that runs all the way from the left uppermost corner to the right lowermost corner. The missing line causes the boundary to be drawn up to the next closest line, which is of course on the wrong side of the hatched stripe.

    The issue of the fold lines can be solved simply. Just erase them, and put them back after the boundaries are all drawn.

    Make a new layer called Boundaries or something, and set it to a contrasting color like RED so you can see what is happening, and make that layer current while you execute the boundary command.

    Red objects were created using the Boundary command.

    Cyan objects were created using the 3DPolyline command.

    Yes, my drawing contains 3D objects called "solids".

    There are a couple of spots where the missing original hatch boundary line is giving you intrusions into that particular hatched stripe.

    I'm out for now. We are overlapping posts so I will bow to ReMark's vast experience.

    The point of the exercise wasn't accuracy. The point was demonstrate to the OP that there was a way to ascertain the negative areas. I'll leave the accuracy to the OP since it's his drawing.

    I would recommend slecting each hatch, right click, go the the hatch option and generate boundary. This will ensure that there is a boundary around each hatch.

    Of course. I should have directed my comments directly to the OP so the issues they face would be known.

    The "generate boundaries" is helpful. I put a circle in contrasting color in each void because when I started erasing hatches and lines I confused myself. Now it seems to be an exercise in trimming and erasing. I hope that I will be able to flatten each void at the end since ReMark mentions that there are 3D entities in this drawing.

    Thanks for all the help and ideas.

    The 3D entities I mentioned were the ones I created. If there were 3D entities in the original drawing I did not bother to look. I assumed you were unable to make picks because of inconsistencies in the drawing so I immediately exploded and flattened the drawing. I then worked with a copy of those results.

    Thanks for the explanation on the 3D comment. Currently, I'm still trimming and erasing. I seem to finding lots of overlapping lines but I'll get it thanks to the info offered here. It's time for a bit of attitude adjustment and I have the client coming over to drop off material for the project and I'll show him what has been required from the drawing his guy provided.

    Have a nice weekend, folks. Thanks again for the help.
