To configure the hatch used by a manual or automatic cut view, we need to access the database corresponding to the used drawing style category and change the hatch used by the configured style presentation.
B) Based on the category from where we use the drawing style (Advance or User), open the following database with the "Open Database (MDB)" button:
AstorAddIn.mdb - C:\ProgramData\Graitec\Advance Steel\2011\User2\Data (for drawing styles used from the "User" category).
D) The various types of hatches that can be configured into an object presentation are available. The default hatch, used by both automatic and manual cut views, is Default Front.
We can configure the following parameters:
- Scale - scale of the pattern. Default is - 1.
- Angle - angle of the pattern. Default value is 0. The pattern is rotated counter clockwise for positive values.
- Color. In addition to the available normal color codes, we can also use two special codes:
"-1" - Read code from defaults. If we use this setting, then the color will be read from a specific default value. For example, for the Default Front hatch, it will read the color from the "Drawing-Presentation / Color of planes of intersection" default.
As an example, we will change the scale and color of the Default Front hatch with the following values:
Angle - 90
Color - 2 (Yellow)
