Recommended Posts



New vectorworks user here.


Is there a faster way to create a hexagonal paver hatch in vectorworks 2019 than trying to line up 6 levels in the hatch editor? and then how can I create that hatch into something that I can use for take off calculations, by assigning a thickness, setting bed, agg base layer,...
