Lesson 10 - Placing Hatch Patterns and Gradient Fills
Hatch patterns are used to show cut sections and to indicate material types. Gradients flood areas with color, and can be used to simulate a 3D look. In this video, you learn how to use the Quick Hatch and Quick Gradient commands to flood areas with hatching and gradients, and then how to use the dialog boxes of the Hatch and Gradient commands to control the look of the patterns. You also learn how easy it is to edit hatch patterns.
