surface hatches and textures

Recommended Posts

Hello forum, I cannot seem to be able to get surface hatches to show up on my walls.

I have set a hatch pattern for my siding component in the wall component edit tool, I have checked to see that display surface hatches is checked in the line render options, and i have checked that the render mode is by component under the object info box.

What step am I missing? I have tried applying a texture as well but i am getting the same result.


I have watched videos and tried following all the steps but Im missing something.


Any help is greatly appreciated

The hatching on the wall in 3D is connected to the the texture on the wall. Ensure that the siding component has a texture, then mahe sure that the texture has a a surface hatch.

Jonathan as always is correct.  You can assign the surface hatch in the edit window for the texture by clicking on the button "Edit Surface Hatch ..." in the lower left portion of the box.  As far as I know, you will only see the surface hatch in "Hidden Line" view, it does not display in OpenGL or Renderworks.

Thanks for the help, I located my issue, when going back to assign a texture and hatch to an existing wall after you update the wall and save it you are asked to replace the existing wall with the new wall. In this dialogue box there is an option to replace texture, this has to be checked.
