I have a custom hatch pattern file that I want to share on our EPDM network with several users.
I can't figure out how to make SolidWorks point to this file as the default "File Location" for hatches.
Hi Shaun, the difficulty probably comes if the local vault view on each machine is at a different location.
If the vault views are at the same location on each PC (eg C:\\EPDM-vault), then you could put the hatch pattern file into the vault, point Solidworks to that location and tell everyone else to do the same.
Hope this helps.
I have the file in a public folder already and I want to point the default SolidWorks "File Location" for hatches to that folder.
My question is... under "System Options"/"File Location" - which option is for hatch patterns? I can't figure out which file path to update.
Hi Shaun, sorry I misunderstood the question.
Unfortunately it's not possible to set the location of the hatch pattern file via System Options, File Locations
There is an open SPR for this:
881681 - Ability to customize location of hatch patterns file via System Options > File Locations
So you would need to have the same file on each machine to have everyone using the same hatch patterns.
