    Default Making custom hatch patterns

    Hello everyone,

    At some point in the past I remember I was able to create a custom hatch pattern from autocad but I do not recall what I did.
    I did a web search and all I came up with were plug-ins. If I recall I believe I maybe used a lisp?

    I am on autocad 2012 and 2013, and I am wondering if someone can give me hand on how to create a hatch.
    What I ultimately want to do is use this pattern I made to represent a perforated metal panel in a building elevation.

    Thanks !

    Thanks for this nice lisp auto hatch maker. I am new here and just trying to find something and I thought of searching for the hatch maker. I was making this tedious way of making a hatch by taking each of my drawn pattern line from point to point, offset to next offset, angles, and starting points manually which is taking me about 4 hours each complicated patterns. But because of this nice lisp scripts. Everything now changed and I might as well start learning lisp scripting to automate my job.

    I suggest to make this small program upgraded to have some function of changing the scale of the pattern. I thought of doing it so because I am making drawing in precision of millimetre..

    Once again thanks a lot...
