 Hatching closed objects problem
17-12-2013 04:27 . pm | View his/her posts only
I have encounter problem in ZwCAD 2014 that I didn't have in 2012 version. I have multiple objects that are closed, made of simple lines, but lines doesn't have same Z value. When I try to create hatch, it says that boundary is not closed. Is there an option that I'm missing, which makes hatching objects at different heights possible?

You say "made up of simple lines", are you sure they tie together properly at the ends? Try increasing the "Gap tolerance" on the right side of the dialog to see if that works.

I just tried a hatch with two properly closed polylines with an elevation difference of 200.0 and it hatched correctly. Can you post the smallest drawing needed to reproduce the problem?

I have objects made of simple lines 20x20m which are closed, but dont have same z values. If I work with polylines everything works, but with just lines, it wont.
