Fills an enclosed area or selected objects with a hatch pattern, solid fill, or gradient

When the ribbon is active, the Hatch Creation contextual tab is displayed. When the
ribbon is off, the Hatch and Gradient dialog box is displayed. If you prefer using
the Hatch and Gradient dialog box, set the HPDLGMODE system variable to 1.

If you enter -HATCH at the Command prompt, options are displayed.

NOTE:

  • To prevent memory and performance problems, the maximum number of hatch lines created
    in a single hatch operation is limited. However, you can change the maximum number
    of hatch lines with the HPMAXLINES system variable.
  • To maintain performance for hatches with non-continuous hatch lines, choose a predefined
    hatch pattern rather than loading and setting a non-continuous linetype. Beginning with AutoCAD 2015-based products, the HPLINETYPE system variable suppresses
    the display of non-continuous linetypes in hatches by default.
  • To control whether object snaps ignore hatch objects, add or subtract 1 from the OSOPTIONS
    system variable.

Choose from several methods to specify the boundaries of a hatch.

  • Specify a point in an area that is enclosed by objects.
  • Select objects that enclose an area.
  • Specify boundary points using the -HATCH Draw option.
  • Drag a hatch pattern into an enclosed area from a tool palette or DesignCenter.

The following prompts are displayed.

Pick internal point
