HatchKit 2.7 CAD Hatch Pattern Editor and Generator.
Extra Revit support. Reliably load Model and Drafting patterns at 1:1 scale.
Scale and transform patterns.
Edit existing patterns.
Translate between hatch pattern file formats.
Create hatch patterns, quickly AND EASILY.HatchKit is a visual hatch pattern editor and generator .
Create and edit hatch pattern files for AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, ArchiCAD, Alibre, AllyCAD, Chief Architect, DataCAD, DesignCAD, FelixCAD, General CADD PRO, IntelliCAD, MegaCAD, MicroStation, PowerCAD, Revit, Rhino 4.0, SPIRIT, SolidWorks, TurboCAD, Vdraft, VectorWorks, VersaCAD, Visual CADD and other packages.
Create your own hatchpatterns: -
bricks,tiles, wood grain, stone, map symbols ...
Hatchkit provides visual hatch pattern editing. Add or remove lines and dots to create a new hatch pattern. Optional grid snap. Object snap. Copy and paste, undo and redo as required. Position freehand with mouse or specify absolute or relative points exactly as cartesian or polar coordinates.
HatchKit is a visual hatch pattern editor, not simply a generator. HatchKit has the unique ability to open any hatch pattern contained in any supported hatch pattern file format, edit and save that pattern to any of the supported hatch pattern file formats.
Open -> Edit -> Save.
HatchKit provides speed, confidence and accuracy unmatched by any other hatch pattern utility.
Import DXF pattern template definitions containing LINE, POINT, CIRCLE, ARC, ELLIPSE, LWPLINE and POLYLINE entities. Import HPGL plot files containing even more complex artwork such as TEXT or SOLIDS.
A hatch pattern consists of the pattern template repeated in any two different directions. The repeat vectors need not be along the X or Y axes or even at right angles, any two different vectors can be used to specify the pattern repeat.
You are not confined to a 1x1 square or a rectangle.
Save directly to your system's native hatch pattern file format (see table below). HatchKit stores the selected directory and filetype between editing sessions.
Individually add or replace patterns within files containing more than one pattern such as ACAD.PAT, ACADLT.PAT, REVIT.PAT or SLDWKS.PTN. Revit users can select pattern UNIT and TYPE.
HatchKit calculates each pattern to the highest decimal precision possible within the constraint of available hatch pattern line length ensuring the pattern will repeat properly over millions of repeats from the origin. No unnecessary duplicated pattern bloat occurs in the saved pattern.
Note: the Demonstration Version watermarks saved patterns.
To build a library of hatch patterns:
Hatch patterns layers handle portions of the overall pattern at different repeat spacings. HatchKit automatically groups elements sharing the same arrangement into seperate layers. Most simple patterns have only one arrangement.
Add new layers to a pattern to build up more complex patterns such as concrete and geologic hatches. Each item in a layer is arranged at that layer's spacing in the produced pattern.
