Standard hatching styles for drawings
Historically, architects would draw hatches by hand, but the development of transfers, and then drawing software has enabled considerable time to be saved on what would be a very repetitive and time consuming task. Today, hatch commands can be used to fill a selected area with a standard hatching patter almost instantly.
For example, a bathroom can be tile-filled by selecting the relevant hatching style to indicate tiles, and applying it to the tiled area of the drawing. The use of parametric software allows common attributes to be attached to a number of similar elements, so that, for example, all tiled areas in a building can be hatched in one command, and changes can be applied throughout.
