Custom Hatches in Select Wall Type Tool Options

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me whether there is a method for assigning a custom hatch for wall cavities using the "Select Wall Type" tool options. It only seems to offer about 8 presets in the pop up menu.

I know I am coming into this late but here is another trick that might be helpful to people who are afraid of editing scripts.

Select a fill to use in your wall such as Gray Solid Hatch. You will notice that the resource browser now shows this hatch since VW creates it on the fly for use with the wall tool. You can then delete this hatch in the resource browser and rename any other hatch with the exact same name (i.e Gray Solid Hatch.) Once you have replaced the hatch the walls will be drawn with the new hatch.

Yes, it is a hack but it may be helpful to some.
