Layout, hatch/ pattern fill

Postby millerjx » Mon Aug 13, 2018 12:18 am

Is there a way to have a void inside of a hatch pattern?
For example to hatch a floor, but not the 24"x24" columns in the middle

you know it's hard to say, depending on how you are making your drawing. Just in terms of simple drawing, one can place a filled rectangle in the column area etc.

A workaround for this would be to hide the floor element in the SU view and then place the hatch on a layer below the Sketchup model layer in Layout. Hope this is what you meant - I tried it with both a sectioned and a non-sectioned view. Layout file in version 2015 attached.

An easy workaround:

1. Create a bold rectangular 'C' shaped object with the line tool.
2. Fill this object with hatch and double-click the object to enable path editing to close the 'C'.
3. Disable the object's stroke.
3. Redraw all outlines to the object with a 'stroke' enabled and 'fill' disabled.
