To Apply Patterning to Represent Section Graphics
Create or add an element template.
In the Element Templates dialog, add template properties by right-clicking on New Template and choosing .
The Pattern/Hatch Settings are added to the Properties pane and apply the current default values that would be used by the hatch or pattern tools.
- (Optional) Edit the properties.
Select the solid(s) that will be cut by the section.
You do not apply hatching or patterning to section graphics. Instead, you associate a pattern with the solid that will be cut, and the pattern is applied to all section graphics produced from that solid. To associate a pattern with a solid, use an element template.
Apply the element template to the solid.
All sections through the solid(s) display with the specified hatch or pattern.
