How can hatch follow path?

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone.


I was trying to draw the enlacements of a wire rope by applying the hatch command but when I facing curves, the hatch needs to rotate somehow. Is it that possible?


I manage to do it by using "measure" command and then with a use of a block, align it to path and then enter the segment length. (Attached image)


But I was wondering if there is a way to do it with hatch command or any other method.

Here's a suggestion. Define a linetype with a diagonal line. You could start with the standard Zigzag type and turn it into Zig. Draw a polyline that follows the midline of the wire. Assign the Zig linetype to that polyline.
