Hatch pattern local mapping setting problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I'm currently trying to hatch with paving pattern. I'm having trouble to understand how does the following window works exactly... Say if I want to use this paving pattern but the size of the paver is 900mm x 400mm, how can I achieve this? The default is 1000mm x 500mm. I was trying to adjust the 'I' and 'J' but couldn't figure out...

I just figure out this issue...I 'll put the answer here hopefully it's helpful for others :


To fill out an area with paving in specific size, the best way is to create your own through hardscape joint pattern setting, instead of trying to adjust pre-made hatch pattern in the library. I found the following page is really helpful. Now I can hatch area with customised pavers.




A great program.

Use Attribute Mapping tool to adjust the default hatch to what you need, then right-click and select "New Hatch from Locally Mapped Hatch"...you'll then have a new hatch saved in the Resource Manager.
