Progress on PAT Compatible Hatching

Post by wandererfan »

I've made some progress towards PAT compatible hatching:

These hatches are exportable to Svg:

Does anybody know what units the intervals between lines are in? I'm using mm since that seems most natural to FC.
Haven't tried to implement dashed lines yet. No performance tests yet either.

Will let you know how I make out.

Looking good.

P.S. As for unit i would imagine ultimately that is a local user setting thing? As for SVG support +1.

google "autodesk pat file download".

There are a few simple patterns included in "installDir/data/Mod/TechDraw/PAT/FCPAT.pat".
