To Set the Default Spacing and Angle
You can set the default spacing and angle of hatching for new planar and offset cross sections. To do that, add the following model parameters using Tools > Parameters:
default_xhatch_angle with a value for the angle between –360 and 360 degrees.
default_xhatch_spacing with a positive value for the spacing.
Consider the following information for setting the defaults for spacing and angle:
If you modify the spacing and angle manually after setting the hatching using these parameters, the change overrides the parameter values.
Changing the parameter values for angle and spacing only affects new cross sections—not previously created ones that have the parameters associated with them.
These parameters do not affect different material styles for hatching. They affect only the default style.
If you enter an invalid value for a parameter, the system uses the default.
