Five elegant lines define a chain-link hatch pattern.

There is something to be said for elegance, and Watson Kilbourne delivers. His pattern for chain-link fencing shows that even good things can be improved. Check out Tip #1934 and the simple five-line pattern he provided to draw a chain-link crosshatch. Simple, elegant, genius!

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.
