Using Bitmap and Hatch Pattern Fills in RealCAD / LANDWorksCAD
How can I use hatch patterns and bitmap images as fills for my planes inRealCAD/ LANDWorksCAD/ArborCAD?
Under Options > Planes you can choose your desired bitmap or hatch pattern (among other fill options).
Using bitmaps fills
Select Bitmap fill under Fill options, then click on […] on the Pattern file section, as shown below:
Note: the Browse button can be used alternatively if you know exactly the bitmap file name you wish to use.
Clicking on […] will display a new dialog box.
Click on Browse and select the folder where your bitmap images are located. In our example,
C:\Users\Public\LANDWorksCAD-v5.90\Textures\Grass & Vegetation
Double click on any of the image files, or select and click on Open
All the image files within your selected folder should now display on the dialog box. If not, try by scrolling down the list.
Double click in any of the bitmaps to use it as your plane fill.
Using hatch pattern fills
Using hatch pattern fills is the same as using bitmaps. Select Pattern Fill and click on […]
Click on Browse and select the folder where you hatch patterns are stored.
Double click on any of the hatch pattern files (.CAD extension).
The Hatch Patterns dialog box should display all the different hatch patterns (.CAD files) contained in your selected folder. If not, try by scrolling through the list to ‘refresh’ the contents of that window.
