define a new crosshatch

Happy Monday all

Lazy question first - Does anyone have a WOOD and/or PLYWOOD crosshatch that they would (wood - all puns intended) be willing to share?

Question involving much more work... Does anyone have a tutorial on how to create a crosshatch?

Thanks!

I wonder if the PTC drafting group would take a tour of the CADDS IV
code on crosshatching. And line styles. Both features were better in
1985 CADDS IV than Pro/E has ever been.

Not hardly, Getting the hatching to not leak out was an art form. Though the
pattern hatches were a treat.

The first problem Pro/e has with hatches, is that parallel lines don't keep
their font's dash/gaps locked parallel to each other. Fix that and a lot
could be done.


Hey Folks
I have not received an answer for my problem.

Again, does anyone know how to create crosshatch patterns for Pro/E?

We are creating wood components and my customer can't understand why we don't have wood crosshatching in the sections.

Help!

Pulled those below references from the Help Menu.
How I understand it is that we have nine standard crosshatch patterns,
included with Detailed Drawings in <loadpoint>/text/crosshatch. There is
no Wood crosshatch pattern included. But you can modify an existing one
and save it as Wood pattern in your crosshatch directory.
Pro/E searches for the specified file with .xch extension in the path
defined by the pro_crosshatch_dir configuration option, the working
directory, paths specified by the search_path configuration options, and
the default crosshatch directory.
If the specified file cannot be located, then the default cross hatch
pattern is used.

Hope it helps.

If you are looking for a wavy line pattern to simulate wood grain. Pro/E doesn't do that. It won't do the typical concrete shown on architectural drawing either. You only get straight lines, to which you can apply the various line styles Pro/E has.
