- Creating half-patterns from scratch…can be an intensive and time-consuming process,…especially if the pattern is only…going to be used a handful of times.…This is where Super Hatch can come in handy.…You can even go beyond the normal…hatch tool by using images, x-refs,…blocks or even wipeouts as fill patterns.…I'm going to start with the block…I already have inserted here.…Here, I have a space that I want to fill…with a notch overlapping itself.…I'm going to grab the Super Hatch tool…from Tools, Express Tools, Super Hatch,…and choose Select an Existing Object.…
I'll select my object, and I'm asked…to specify the corner points to define…the row and column tile distances.…This refers to how far away in the horizontal…direction and the vertical direction…that the pattern will repeat itself.…I can choose the upper left corner…and lower right corner, so my pattern…will repeat itself edge to edge.…I can also press Return to accept…the magenta rectangle that was already created for me.…I'll specify my internal point and press Return.…
