Wood Flooring Hatch

Recommended Posts

designer_jackie

Hi all - I've spent so many accumulated hours searching for a basic Wood Flooring hatch. Plank, random or at least 1/3 offset (no sunning bond/1/2 offset) - you know, how pretty much all wood flooring ever done looks installed. I'm so surprised there's not an abundance of this pattern? Or at least 1 that comes with my AutoCAD LT version. Does anyone have one they could share or a reputable source to purchase from? Please see image below, something along the lines of this. Of course there are images and other forums all over google, but as soon as you click them the sites don't exist any more, or the post from 2005 no longer has the attachment (which is how I found this website). Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have any basic dimensions to use.

 

If the hatch pattern is created for particular dimensions, then it can be used at a hatch scale of 1, much easier.

There is various ways here is one but its a lisp that makes hatch patterns also check out this pat file and link it uses excel to make pat files. You can edit the sizes to suit.

I had a quiet afternoon so I wrote a pattern file for a Wood Flooring Hatch. It is based on a plank width of 150 drawing units, and lengths to suit your picture. One cannot have a completely random hatch pattern, but if the repeat spacing is large enough, the eye can get fooled.

Here is the pattern file, and you will notice that at the end, instead of a blank line, one can put a line starting with a * and then one can put a credit for the creator. Save the file as WoodFloor.pat and put it where AutoCAD can find it.

Nice job Eldon, but AFAIK any comment should be preceded by a semi-colon, not an asterisk, viz:

Now that indeed is curious!! If I put a semicolon, then when I pick that hatch pattern file, I get an Error message.

Anyway, the asterisk was to populate the 'blank' line at the end so one does not have to put an extra blank line after the hatch information.

 

Nothwithstanding advice from my elders and betters, I thought I would also write Wood Floor patterns for 100 units wide planks, 6 units wide planks and 4 units wide planks

 

I hope they work. If not, pay attention to those who know!

You add to global knowledge.   Thank you. 

 

A blank line at the foot of a .PAT file has long been an accepted defense against that error message.  What AutoCAD will accept from a .PAT file is quite arcane, for instance a blank line immediately following a  *pattername,comment causes grief.  

 

Whatever works, but my own preference for comments is immediately preceding the whole pattern definition.
