Hi,

Am doing wet area elevations and can't work out how to specify rectangular hatch (eg. 300x600, or other proportion).
Any ideas?

If not available at all in Viacad 2d version, do any of the other versions cater for this?

cheers!

Maybe the linear array tool would work better than hatching. You could draw your object and then use the array tool.

Thanks for that idea, but it won't address the requirement especially for irregular shape areas.
However, through thinking your idea through Jason, it led me to realise that there is a better solution!

>>>>>create second hatch at 90degrees- then set different spacing - it works off the first poly line! Wohoo!

This should go in the manual!
