Associative hatch won't stretch
« on: August 09, 2007, 01:31:21 PM »
I've got a DB of a bolt and I'm using a combination of stretch and array to make it look correct at various lenghts.  I've also got a hatch pattern thrown into the mix, but when I stretch the bolt, the hatch won't fill in.  The hatch pattern is set to "associative" so I don't know what else to look at.

See attached DWG.

I could not get the hatch to stretch but here is one that arrays the pattern:

I've had better luck when I hatch by "selecting object", rather than "pick (internal) point".
This requires your hatch area to be a closed polyline.

ronjonp's array solution is definatly the best as you are arraying the "boundary" its impossible for the hatch to remove associative to the boundary  :-)

Yeah... I like it.  I didn't even think about arraying the hatch.  I got so hung up on trying to make the stretch work.  Thanks guys!

Matt,

sweet anchor bolt. 

If may suggest to kick it up a notch, have a seperate stretch the nut & washer in the other direction so that you can show this as holding something like the 2x4 as I am show in this piccy.   Just a suggestion  :-)
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.
