…There comes a time in drafting when you…need to display the material of an object, whether…it's siding on an architectural elevation or the…materials of an assembly section like steel or aluminium.…Instead of drawing patterns of lines by hand, AutoCAD…allows you to fill closed areas with a hatch pattern.…We'll find the hatch tool here, and are immediately presented with…a hatch visor and the request to pick an internal point.…Think of this as pouring…a bucket of paint into the enclosed area.…The pattern will spread to fill the area…you select, so the area must be completely closed.…
I'll click inside of the area here, and I'm given a visual preview of the pattern.…I can move up to the hatch visor, and select the pattern I want to…use from the drop down here, or simply…click the pattern to display the hatch library.…I can search here at the bottom, let's say for…gravel, select it, and preview the changes.…I can control the angle of the pattern here, and…the scale of the pattern by typing a value here.…Moving across, I can create separate hatches by clicking here.…
