How to create custom hatch patterns in ZWCAD:
The syntax for hatch patterns:
pattern-name[, description]

angle, x-origin,y-origin, delta-x,delta-y [, dash1, dash2, ...]

examples:
*ftrailer, proposed future trailers
105, 0,0, 0,0.5, .5,–.25,0,–.1,0,–.25

This hatch has an angle of 105 degrees, an origin of 0,0, a delta-x of 0, a delta-y of 0.5 (the spacing between lines), and then defines a non-continuous linetype (dash, space, dot,space,dot,space)
