unable to hatch


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am unable to fill objects with any sort of hatch in my current drawing. Other drawings are fine, but in this one, nothing will hatch, either form the tool palettes option or from the hatch menu. Any ideas what I have done out there?

Thanks, Alec.

Hi again,

its now hatching, but incredibly slowly. Even a simple rectangle is taking highlight its boundary, and minutes to hatch. I can't go through a whole drawing like this.

not that I know of. Its a new start of a couple of elevations of a building. Nothing clever, a few blocks of windows etc, and the rest is just lines.

When I close this page and go back to desktop, then back to ACAD open dwg, it takes ages to refresh thew screen, and the Acad image slowly grows across the screen. I did create a single hip roof tile and then array it 30 times at an angle, and then copy it several more within the dwg, and I have had the dialogue box pop up that says I am trying to hatch more than 10000 boundary lines or something, so I have redrawn each shape to hatch with a single line and it is still really slow.

It could be hardware related. Performance hits can be difficult to track down with guesses. Can you post the file or a portion of it that exhibits the behavior? Also, detail the exact steps you are taking to hatch.

Have you purged the drawing? There may be a ton of crap in it that is hidden and needs to be removed.

 

Excessive layers? Excessive scales? Do you have any notes that are on annotative scales? Do you have the "automatically add new scales to annotation" option turned on (this one actually corrupted a file for us because the drafter kept switching scales so much that ALL of the annotations had every single scale)?

Hi, think I have sourced the problem. I copied a small area of the file to a new dwg file and deleted all the hip tiles that contain elipses (there were a lot of them). The hatch commands now respond much quicker. I shall have to delete the elipses from the original file and rethink how to draw a hip tile.
