 Concrete Hatch Problem
20-07-2012 02:00 . pm | View his/her posts only
The AR Conchatch used to look fine, the triangles were all connected and it only hadtriangles and dots. Now whenever we use the concrete hatch none of the trianglelegs connect and there are dashs over the pattern as well as dots. When youcompare the two hatch's properties they are all the same, but obviously theyare not. It almost seems as if the concrete hatch is at an angle but this isnot the case either. Has anyone run into this problem with the concrete hatchpatter, or another one? Do you know how to fix it?
Thank you

Type SNAPBASE; select a point near the hatch. Type HATCHEDIT, select hatch, hit APPLIES. Hatch fixed.
Why hatch is whacky: Drawing has large coordinates. ZWCAD's imprecicision in drawing hatches becomes noticeable whern coordinates are large.
Setting SNAPBASE or ORIGIN of UCS near the hatch prevents the error on new hatches. HATCHEDIT allows you to fix it without redrawing the hatch.
