Hi see attached. (this in in millimetres)

Go Modify hatch and set the numbers like this.Because you want each board to over lap the length is 6" plus 1 overlap of 2" so the length is 8" for Level 1 and Level 2.

And the dash facter there are 4 patterns till you get a repeat so you need on 75% of the line so the dash factor is 0.75. if it was 1 it would create a full grid

I would also explore a 'Tile' fill as a way of achieving this. The Hatch interface isn't the most intuitive thing in the world...

Doesn't this actually give you a hatch of 2" x 4" pavers?

Doh, Oh yea my maths and brain isn't as it was 40 years ago.

But the principle still applies.

Will post the new one.
