    Thanks Rob for trying. I though i was missing something on the setting or system variables but i tried whatever i could adjust but to no avail.

    BTW, there is no LISP or method to find where the actual origin point is plus the exact scale & angle?

    The alternative is a very difficult mission, not to mention i cannot even get the exact scale & angle to match.

    That being said, when I did that with your file I got the unexpected result of the pattern looking like it changed scales but the value did not change.

    An alternative would be move the pattern to be where you want it and then adjust the boundary to match the shape.

    It was a compliment.

    As it turns out the hatch pattern on the right is not an exact match. While your hatch pattern angle is called out as being 102 it is really 99.4316.

    (First, a little pet peeve of mine is when someone asks for code before finding out how to do it without.)

    The properties of a hatch can be obtained and changed in more than one way. The ribbon and the properties box have the tools you are looking for. I'm not sure that is going to help you with this file, though. Those hatches are not behaving properly.

    The hatch pattern on the left, in magenta, matches the angle and scale of your original.

    Hi Remark,

    Yes. Just that the patten is not align if you alight the top right hand edge. It looks close though

    Looking close is not the same as exact. Did you see my second attempt?

    Firstly, great, but how did you find out the exact scale & angle? I hatch by inhert properties & also by measuring the angle of the HEX patten after exploding it, i still cannot get it to match.

    2ndly, is it possible to find out the exact origin point?

    Thanks

    Hi Rob, I understand what you mean. In my defense, i posted on non-LISP forum & only mention LISP when it seems not possible to find the exact origin point
