Mike Fettkether sent Harry a pair of nice Hatch Patterns (Tip #2106). The two patterns are for diamond tread and expanded metal flooring. Just copy the PAT files into the standard AutoCAD search folder and then select a custom type in the Hatch dialog box of AutoCAD. Pick the hatch pattern desired from the custom pattern list (you may need to do a file search the first time), and you're into some heavy metal! Thanks, Mike. Harry thinks creative hatch patterns are neat.

Start the Bhatch command by typing Bhatch at the Command prompt to show the dialog box (figure 2).

From this dialog box, select the Pattern "?" button to display the dialog box (figure 3). Pick the Custom tab.

If you copied the PAT files in the custom pattern folder for AutoCAD, a list of files appear in the left list box. Pick one to show a preview of the pattern in the right window of the dialog box.

Custom hatch patterns are a challenge to create by hand, and Harry tips his hat to these great examples.

This works best in an enclosed area. Download the tip and place the PAT file in your support path folder. Next use Bhatch and select the options for a custom pattern. Look for the chain-link fencing option in the custom patterns that are available.
