The aims of this chapter are to introduce hatching in its various forms: 1. To show a sample of the variety of hatching patterns. 2. To demonstrate hatching from the Boundary Hatch and Fill dialog. 3. To demonstrate hatching from the command line. 4. To give examples of hatching in sectional views in technical drawings.
The Hatch tool can be called from its tool icon in the Draw toolbar (Fig. 11.1) or by entering h at the command line. When the tool is called, the Boundary Hatch and Fill dialog comes on the screen.
