Hatches, importing and exporting from drawings

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am working on ACAD 2004. I had an array of hatches beyond the pre-defined provided with the program. For years I have used a few, but great, hatches. My computer finally died. I loaded 2004 on my new machine and am now missing two thirds of the hatches I had.

1. How do I find the other hatches? or are they lost with the old machine?

2. In old drawings I can see the desired hatch. Is there a way to extract the hatch form the old drawings and load into on to my new machine?

Thx HughA,

seems simple enough but clicking on the getpat.lsp link only brings up a note page in text. I do not see how or where to load the lisp; there is nothing actionable after the list of "free stuff"

Any additional thoughts,

That "note page" IS the lisp routine. Open Notepad and copy/paste the text into the file then save as getpat.lsp. Use the APPLOAD command, in AutoCAD, to load the routine. To run the program type GETPAT at the command line then press the Enter key. Follow the command line prompts.
