    Area Hatch fill pattern "network" behaves unexpectedly.

    Chris Oxford

      Trying to use "network" pattern to simulate wire braiding over a part. Have used in past thus:

       

       

      Trying again on another drawing, same settings, comes out like this:

       

       

      SW 2012 Premium, SP5.0.

       

      If I go in and try to add the same hatch on the original drawing, it behaves like the second one. Seems to me that the "network" hatch source file has been messed with.  How?

       

      Looks more acceptable if the pattern has no gaps.  This is a workaround to start with, not happy about having to fix a workaround.

       

      I work in a multi-user environment, maybe 18 SW users, drafters/engineers.

       

      Thanks for any advice.
