    I already gave you two ways to find and change that information. And I'm the one that's slow on the uptake, today.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    How far are your hatches from the origin (0,0)? What units are you drawing in? What exactly are you drawing? Seems quite large to me.

    500 scale for the Hatch Pattern, what are the Hexes representing?

    Check on here and other AutoCAD fora, you will find (particularly certain complicated hatch patterns) get to acting strange when very far (and actually what far is seems to vary) from 0,0.

    Just something to look into.

    vernon:

    When one does a LIST on the original hex hatch pattern the angle and scale are listed as being 102 and 500 respectively. When one tries to duplicate this using those values the hatch pattern is way too large and slightly off kilter.

    The values I used were determined by a couple of different methods but both required exploding a copy of the original hatch pattern.

    Start a new metric drawing.

    Create a new layer (Layer1) and give it the color red.

    Draw a rectangle.

    Start the hatch command, choose the Hex pattern and for angle and scale use: 99.4316 and 19.685.

    Hatch the rectangle.

    Select the rectangle and hatch pattern, right-click and choose Clipboard > Copy with base point.

    Now open your original drawing, right-click and choose Clipboard > Paste as block.

    Overlay the block on top of your original hatch pattern as closely as you can. Do they appear to match?

    Note: I am not concerned with origin at this time. I just want to see if the angle and scale match up with the original.

    Thanks Remark for the help. I am out of office already.

    I think the scale off the hatch may be my bad. I copied the hatch from my drawing & paste it to a blank file. So the scale may be screw up further.

    I guess my main issue here is mainly the origin

    Then we are not on the same page yet as I am totally unconcerned with origin at the moment. It doesn't mean a thing if you can't duplicate the angle and scale of the hatch pattern you are trying to match.

    If one sets the angle unit precision to a few more places, then the angle of the hatch is revealed as 102.21341666.

    The hex hatch is from the imperial file, and a scale of 500 matches exactly.

    The OP is trying to reproduce it in a metric drawing. The scale wouldn't be the same.

    That is easy. Simply set the system variable MEASUREMENT to 0 before hatching. The hatch file will be the imperial file, all within a metric drawing.
