If someone has or if there is available a board and batten hatch I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks very much.

Hello Marc,

What spacing between the lines would you be looking for? It might be possible to use the Steel pattern (rotated 45 degrees) for now?

Marc,

Here is one I set up based on Alside Board & Batten. It is 5-1/2" wide with another 1-1/2" for the seam. The origin is the center of the 5-1/2" wide portion and the pattern was defined to be a scale of 1. Just copy and paste the section below to a notepad file and save it as "Alside Board and Batten.dhp" Save it into your Hatch Patterns folder.

Quote:
[Header]
Scale=1
Angle=0
Display Scale=10
Segments=2

[Segments]
001=0,0,90,88,0,0,224
002=0,0,90,136,0,0,224

The trick I use for this, and also for standing seam metal roofing, is to create a hatch of the area using the Line hatch pattern. If you wanted the board width of the siding pattern to be 8" then use 8 x 32 =256 as the hatch scale. Set the hatch angle to make the lines run vertically. After you have hatched the area, copy that hatch to itself so that there are two hatch patterns, one over top of the other.

Now, in the Hatch menu, click on Origin. Back on the hatch pattern, click where you want the batten line to be offset from the board line; say 1 1/2" over. Now, click on the hatch pattern.

What you should find is that one of the double hatch patterns has shifted over so that the pattern is offset from the first pattern by the dimension of the batten width. The end result should be a wide board and then a narrow board, giving you the board-and-batten look.
