Hatch not filling entire object

Recommended Posts


Wondering if anyone can help. I'm trying to fill an object with a solid hatch. Please see attached pictures. The 2 issues I'm coming across is that:

1. The object is not becoming fully hatched

2. Some of the objects lines are being covered up

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong

If you zoom in and out does it change how much of the fill is included or missing, or does it remain the same?

What type of object does it say that object is in the Object Info Palette? (It isn't selected in the screenshots) is it a polygon, polyline or something else?

The diagonal lines look like you have some open and some closed polygons.

If you don't have a closed poly, VW will make an extra edge to close it and fill to there.

It looks to me like the circular room is made up of at least four or five separate polygons/polylines. If this is the case, try making sure the end points are coincident and then Add Polys.
