Rotating A Hatch

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

How do I rotate a hatch? I would like the bring herringbone rotated 45 degrees. (See attached screen shot).

Additionally, "smart dims" with green handles where can I turn that feature off?

"Easy Mapping" is a little finicky but worked. As for the associative dimensioning, I just forgot it was set as the default in "Document Preferences" TY J

Jeremy in Vw 2010 you can rotate associative hatches on the screen using the Attribute Mapping tool. This also allows you to set an origin for each hatched area and resize the hatch. For more information view the Easy Mapping of Associative Hatches online video. http://www.nemetschek.net/library/index.php?movie=2010movies

There is still a bug you need to keep in mind with this in VW2010. I hope the bug is gone in VW2011 though.

When you do change the hatche with the attribute mapping tool, the hatch won't scale correct in viewports anymore. Try a hatch with real world dimensions, change it with the attribute mapping tool, and then make viewports on different scales, you'll notice that the hatch isn't correct.
