Standard hatching styles for drawings
Historically, hatches were drawn by hand, but the development of transfers, and then drawing software enabled considerable time savings on what was a very repetitive and time consuming task. Today, hatch commands can be used to fill a selected area or material with a standard hatching pattern almost instantly. For example, a bathroom can be tile-filled by selecting the relevant hatching style to indicate tiles, and applying it to the whole 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.
