Often i hatch two areas separately. is there any way to combine 2 adjacent hatches? for e.g. there are two adjacent rectangles which are hatched with same pattern having the same scale. if i make the shape into a one single rectangle by trimming the middle line, i want to combine the two hatch into a one single hatch.
I am trying out this option, and am noticing that whenever I close and reopen the drawing with a surface that uses this option, it resets my maximum angle from whatever I have it set to, to 90 degrees. Am I missing some setting that defaults the max angle to 90 degrees on drawing open? Or is something else going on here?
I'm modelling liner plates on a conveyor chute and I want the liners and the fixing bolts to align on between the walls which are different. angles.
I've modeled the liners on the first wall how I want them and now want to project lines from the top and bottom of the liner plates as well as the centers of the bolt holes on this wall to the adjacent wall.
I cant seem to get the lines to project onto the adjacent wall at the same level.
I've posted two images of the model that hopefully illustrate the problem. I would love to put a zipped folder of the model up to which is under 3MB in size but I keep getting an error message saying the size of the attachment is too large and that the maximum size is 1,572,864 bytes.
I need to place points automatically and in order sequentially along an alignment and I need to generate data from the points relative to an adjacent alignment. SO, two alignments, adjacent but not parrallel to each other. The data would then be point #, sta and offset from the adjacent alignment with the points placed in order and by window or crossing. I have a few thousand to place so one at a time would be an undesireable solution of course.
In my map book template 8.5 x 11 Elegant file when I inset it in a mapbook the adjacent arrows are underneath the block I have to go to the template right click go to draw order and pick send to front. I went to the template file went to block editor to make these same changes there and had no effect.
How to add hatches to finished hatches in the classic view of autocad. in older versions if you needed to edit / add hatch you would double click on the hatch and the hatch dialog box would come up. then you would pick new points to add. How to do this in 2013 cant find any answers on the web.
I have a path shape that curves through the property, and I would like the hatch (which are just 60x60cm squares) follow the curve of the path instead of being applied like a pattern (just orthogonally).
Quite often I recieve drawings with loads of hatches/solid fills in. For example a housing layout with all of the houses, trees, roads, grass etc hatched.
I generally want to delete these/turn them off and work with a line drawing.
Sometimes the hatches have been drawn on their own layer, so turning them off is simple. But sometimes they've been drawn on layers with other things I want to keep. Genereally there are loads of hatches, so deleting them one by one is frustratingly slow.
I used to use Microstation, and in that there was a tool to delete hatches or fills, and if you selected all items you could delete the lot in one go. Is there such a tool in AutoCAD?
The orange items in question are blocks and are just copies of each other. However, the grass hatch underneath shows through the left one and not the right one. I checked the properties of both blocks and they are identical except for x/y position.
I created a pipe network in civil3D and now I want to insert it as an xref in an autocad file. The problem is that when I do so, I lose some properties, such as the hatches in the directional arrows of the pipes and the background mask property of the structure labels.
I am having an issue with a window not inserting properly into a wall, or rather with the wall materials showing behind the window in seemingly random locations. I am using a modified version of a standard wall style and have tried several different types and lengths of windows with the same result in this location. I am attaching a screenshot.
From DWG files exported off Vectorworks, in Model Space my lines are interrupted with blank area which are non removable, unpickable. If I move my drawings in MS theses black areas stay in place, the problem is: I can drag my drawing away from them but without seeing them, where they are. In Paper Space, these invisible hatch turned into grey area in random location and as grey background behind Elevation Benchmark (circle+text), room text, floor section.
usingacasd 2010 inmy company we get drawing from others , most of the time we need to use the CTBto gray out others plane and emphasize our drawing on top of it., everything isgrayed out as expected but hatches and poliline which have big "global weight"property will still appear emphasize. i tried to screen out 50 percent of thepen , it effects the hatch but also the other vectors so they can be hardlyseen. howcan i have hatches and global weight poliline grayed out like all othervectors?
I've recently started working with a colleague who uses Microstation. Since importing .dgn files into AutoCAD, my list of hatches seems to have increased exponentially, with many of the new hatches being similar in appearance and having names prefixed '_dgn'.
I'm now finding that scrolling through the list causes my computer to crash.Even when starting a new drawing, these hatches are on the list, and the purge command does not have 'hatches' on the list. How I can manage these hatches?
I have this complex section of an architectural project, which is drawn at 1:1 scale (obviously). It has lots of constructive details, however i've made lots of layers and everything is under control.However, as I started to hatch the drawings, i was having big problems at using the same drawing for different scales, because non-annotative hatches also change their size with different scales.
So I began trying annotative, and i did it as i read in several how-tos. I made an hatch in the layout to know the perfect scale for the hatch, then applied that scale in model hatches. Then, in properties, I selected the scales at which that hatch should belong. Until here everything was OK!
However, as the ideal scale for the hatches (ANSI31) was something like 0.0003, here started the problems. The layout has an erratic behavior with similar hatches (I even tried to use match props to be sure different hatches had the same properties). On different viewports, some of the hatches appear as solid, and they plot just like that! As I zoom in and zoom out, the problem changes, as problematic viewports become right and others become wrong.
I tried to change HPmaxlines to 10000000, i tried to change the size of ansi31 in acad.pat, however the problem persists. It seems that the problem disappears when i have increase the hatch scale to, lets say, 0.05, however it's not that scale I want because of the presentation...
Whenever I plot this perticular dwg to a pdf, the pdf comes out perfectly fine. But when I go to print the pdf... the titleblock and some hatches don't show up. All the hatches are on the same layer and the titleblock is xrefed in the same as all the other sheets in the set, which all are fine as well.
