Creating Hatches in 2017

Recommended Posts

Guest Blars

Does VW offer a way to create a hatch of say standard running bond brick that also shows the mortar joint width?  I dont want to use a "tile" to create this as i want it to be line work and not a graphic representation of linework.  ... (hatching by using "tiles" is pretty awful, btw.)


Another question is why oh why is the hatch creation tool in the resource manager so archaic?  Why cant i just draw what i want the hatch to look like in that window?  Why am i restrained so extensively by being forced to use the convoluted hatch creation "tool?"  I feel like im trying to perform a complicated surgery with a baseball bat.


Thanks for your help / listening to my rant.

It allows one to resize an existing hatch & to save the amended hatch as a new hatch.


I never noticed this before. Thank you!

I just started using tiles instead of hatches for these.
