How do I create a hatch? You will need to have a closed Polyline for the Outline Perimeter Boundary. This can be accomplished by several methods. One way is to click on each Perimeter Boundary Line in a sequence or another way is to do a seed Hatch where you click inside a closed Polyline. To do the seed Hatch use the IH command then select a point inside the Boundary and it will hatch inside that Boundary. Of course you will have to set up your hatch Setting first. Use the HS "Hatch settings" command the select the Pattern, Scale, rotation, Color, Layer and etc.

How do I modify an existing hatch? Use the HG Command "Hatch Change" Type HG then Click on the Hatch or Hatches than hit enter and you will come to a menu where you can Modify the different Properties and Features of the Hatch.

GCP has Very Nice and Powerful Hatching capabilities.

The posted "paper" was written for a different CAD system (Alibre), but most of the "directions" still apply. One difference is that Alibre uses "sub-classes" of hatch patterns that General CADD does not. However, it may help you. It may be downloaded from: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/344 ... nition.pdf

I want to actually create a new hatch pattern. Is there a step by step guide somewhere for that?
