Creating a Custom Crosshatch Pattern
Crosshatch patterns can be read in two different formats. The first is the .dat format described below, a format used exclusively by CADKEY and Kubotek products. The second is the .pat (Pattern) format used widely by a variety of other systems.
You can create your own crosshatching patterns and save them to a .dat or .pat file that can be read into the program. See the information below for an example of the XHATCH.DAT file format.
