  1. Hopefully can find some advice on creating a linetype from the ANSI 31 hatch type (/////////) I've read the many posts about creating linetypes but just can't figure this out..So far Autocad just gives me an error when I try and use 1/2 of the code from ZIG ZAG linetype below. Below that is what I have thus far. Any help would be greatly appreciated..we use this all day long at work and was hoping to turn this into an mline so I could just pic a point a long a wall (only 4" walls needed) and drag along as needed. Thanks again! *ZIGZAG,Zig zag /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ A,.0001,-.2,[ZIG,ltypeshp.shx,x=-.2,s=.2],-.4,[ZIG,ltypeshp.shx,r=180,x=.2,s=.2],-.2 ANSI31, ANSI31 //////////////////////////// A,.0001,-.2,[ANS,ltypeshp.shx,x=-.2,s=.2],-.4
  2. I have a drawing that I'd like to export as a .WMF file. Among other things, it contains colored hatches and gradients. How is it possible to keep that information in the output file? Thanks.
  3. Is there a way, when sectioning model consisting of several solids, to output them with various hatches as intersection fill. I'm currently using the section plane (under the solids ribbon), but all solids end out with the same hatch. Only customizing option i can find is color byLayer.. Is there a way to link the hatch pattern to fx. layer? So that an object on one layer comes out with, say, solid hatch, while another on another layer comes out with another hatch pattern? It is fairly simple modeling, so it would overcomplicate the project, i think, to go towards aec-objects. our projects normaly consists of a concrete floor, though fairly complex in geometry, and various ground-fill layers underneath. Any suggestions? In advance
  4. I was wondering if anyone here can find the problem in this hatch pattern as I'm sure I've used it before but now AutoCAD 2009 LT tells me it cannot read the hatch pattern? I've attahced the hatch pattern file. If somone could please find the issue in the file and send it back then I'd be very grateful! As I've had a quick look myself but i'm not 100%. I know it has to have an empty line after the code but I've checked that and it can't be that! Hoping someone may know more than me? Thanks everyone! (P.S; i couldn't upload it as a .PAT so copied and pasted the whole hatch file into notepad and made it a .txt) (P.P.S; apologies, perhaps should have started this thread in the 2D drafting sub-menu! ) Hatch pattern 1.txt
  5. So I am trying to get the area of the 2D gear face I just made. I tried doing it the way stated: "Tip. A fast way to calculate an area bounded by several objects in 2D is to use the BOUNDARY command. With BOUNDARY, you can pick a point within the area to create a closed polyline or region. You can then use the Properties palette or the LIST command to find the area and perimeter of the polyline or region." but the BOUNDARY command did not work and it gave me an error of "valid hatch boundary not found." Is there a better way to figure out this area or any way that I can fix this error. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
