Assign hatch/materials on section surface

Recommended Posts

I am using 8.5 now.  I would like to do a section view in Layout 8.5 that can show material/hatch on the cut surface.  For example, showing simple concrete hatch if my concrete floor.    I believe it could be done in 7, in material property.  Where I can find in 8.5.

thanks,

Pick your object, go to the Tool Options and click on Attributes.  Then in the drop-down select Cross Section.

Thank you,  but actually I am looking for assigning hatch, Judy like the video What’s new in FormZ 7,  not colors.  So I can hatch concrete, wood, metal, etc,  it was used to be in materials.

Select the object or objects you would like to have hatches show in the clipping plane.  In Tool Options Palette choose the Cross Section Tab.  Open the Hatch Palette and drag the desired Hatch from it into the Selected Hatch Option box.  It should show a plus-sign cursor and assign that hatch.  Note in the attached images that while an object is selected, the hatch in the cross section does not show up. 

Hope this is what you were describing and that this helps.

Oh, and be sure that Show Hatches is checked in the Display Options for each of the display modes you want it to show with; Wireframe, Shaded Work, Shaded Full, and Hidden Line.

Thanks Setz,  it has been moved to object base, not material base.  There are some good points by doing this, but I actually prefer material base better.

I think what you are suggesting would be a cool feature!  There is an image tab in the hatch options palette but I haven’t been able to figure out how to get it to load an image.

One nice thing about the hatch feature is that the .pat hatching is converted to vector lines in HL.

I think it was in version 7 that we can assign hatch farceaxh material.  Since I use Foemz in architectural designing which each model has many objects.  Being able to assign hatch by materials will be more efficient for me.
