The Hatch command creates a pattern of lines to fill selected bounding curves.
The input curves can be in model space or layout space or a combination of these.
Control points of hatches can be turned on so that the shape of the hatch can be adjusted.
Scaling a hatch does not change the pattern scale.
Holes in hatches can be removed by the UntrimAll command.
The print order of hatches, annotations, and geometries is decided by some rules.
Select closed planar curves.
Or set Boundary=Yes in the command-line to select closed regions from intersected curves.
Determines whether selected regions combine to create a single hatch or separate hatches.
Creates a hatch from the outer boundary (left), or creates separate hatches from the sub-regions (right), based on the CombineRegions option setting.
Hatch creation options
Most of the settings in the hatch creation dialog can be edited in the Hatch properties.
The hatch pattern names and preview thumbnails.
Displays the starting coordinates of the hatch pattern.
Clickto pick a new location.
Remembers the current base point for new hatches.
Pick closed regions from intersected curves to create the hatch.
The rotation angle of the pattern.
Hatches with History:
Hatches without History:
The scale factor of the hatch pattern.
The gradient settings allow using more than one color in a hatch. The color transition is smooth between colors. Gradient controls can be edited in the dialog or viewports. The start (1) and end (3) points define the gradient span. Color stops (2) define colors in the gradient.
Shift-click, or double-click, on a color stop to change the color.
Right-click on the gradient span to add a new color stop.
Click the, , or button to edit the gradient in the viewport.
Use the color set in object properties and disable the gradient settings.
The linear gradient span mirrors on repeat.
The linear gradient span does not mirror on repeat.
The radial gradient span mirrors on repeat.
The radial gradient span does not mirror on repeat.
Control how many times the gradient span repeats between the start and end points.
Repeats do not extend beyond the start and end points.
A color stop defines a color at a percentage location in the gradient span.
Add a new color stop to the gradient.
Select a color.
Pick a location in the viewport.
Right-click on the gradient span in the dialog at the location to add a new color stop.
Edit the gradient in the viewport with command-line options.
Select a color stop in the viewport to remove.
Change the hatch properties to match a different hatch.
The HatchBase command changes the starting point of the selected hatch objects.
The HatchScale command sets the scale factor of hatch patterns in model viewports.
Hatch patterns in model viewports are scaled by the HatchScale value.
Hatch patterns will not scale.
Changes the Scaling option between Enabled and Disabled.
Manage the hatch settings for the current model.
