Drawing X-Hatching from Part Material Definition

Drawing X-Hatching from Part Material Definition

I'm guessing you can do what I'm about to ask, but I just can't get it to work.

 

I want to automatically show the cross hatch defined in the material definition in a section view on a drawing. I would think this should be pretty simple to do.

 

I define the cross hatch for the material by entering the name of the cross hatch under Misc./Detailing/Cross Hatch of the material definition. See .PNG below. I want to use a Hatch PAT not a Hatch XCH.

 

However, when I create the section view in a drawing the hatching that is displayed is the random hatching that Creo assigns to it.

 

What I'm I not doing? Any help would be great.

 

Thanks, Steve

Are you sure that the section has a defined material?
 
Crosshatching patterns may be based on the assigned material of the part. For example, if you create a cross section that cuts through a defined material such as steel, the system looks for a crosshatching pattern that has the same name as the assigned material. If the system finds such a pattern, it automatically assigns it to the cross section.
If the cross section does not have a defined material, the system assigns the default crosshatching style.

Thanks for the reply. I verified everything again yesterday and it still didn't work. I don't know if it is because I'm using a PAT hatch and not a XCH hatch. 

 

I have a deadline for tomorrow so I'm going to play with this again next week. I'll post my progress.

Hi,

you have to do Edit Hatching and set Use hatch from the part option manually. According to https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article/CS148466 it is not possible to set this option as default.
