### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

We stick to basic patterns 0,45 & 90 degrees? Correct form one point: 0,45,90,135... do not have decimals, so the don't loose any. :P There are also x.99999999abc ones with little or no absolute fault. Apart from the non-clones (0,45,90...) there are also 1-2-3-4-5...9 clones. At least 10 times 10 ...

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

AC might use long doubles or rely on the 16th digit of 15,95.... Ha
Sorry, could not temper myself.

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

All, I think we might have hit a snag here. I can not call it a bug. What I presume is that Qcad calculates all the offsetted paralles and shifts endlessly and that AC at some point re-calculates a new origin and starts over from there. >> >>EDIT: Redrawn, read further: John hitted the AC limit. >> ...

BTW @1000000 Is as far as the Hatchkit guys go.
Their example is metric @25000000.

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

John, all, Or one uses a cartesian grid to draw in, lets say 0.01 x 0.01 units. Or one uses a Tile-grid, equally lets say 100x100 Tiles. In a unit square the first option is also a 100x100 grid. In the second option there is no limit on the accuracy of the reference... (Except the decimal digits tha...

### Hatch dY (offset) limited

Andrew, Could it be that somewhere in the Qcad core there is a limit on the decimal digits for the dY (offset) section of a definition entry in a pattern file? It seems I can not parse anything more precise as up to 12 decimal digits.... In an attempt to come close to: https://www.hatchkit.com.au/fa...

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

At some points I came accross only some segments that failed casted far away even with rather good accuracy. Included is a dxf with the Qcad Logo by John. Don't ask me what revision, it doesn't care. From John Hyslop posts I understand he is greatly offended with the fact that I used an example pro...

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

dXshift Fix.dxf This explains a lot about the shifting of line 101 of that specific QCAD-LOGO. :!: But not why it works with a reversed dXshift.... Nor that it works plain in AC. That could be Qcad related.... :?: A: We need a far better accuracy for very small dYoffsets. e_geek What counts here ar...

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

Jhon, hold your horses. It is not a flaw in any of the generators. It has nothing to do with using a grid like structure. In fact, you can't avoid using a grid or you get an endless system. Numbers will grow exponetional and are no longer handled correct. Together with increasing numbers, the accura...

### Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

Confirmed: Using -180-0-180 does not solves this. Saw that the guys of hatchkit used positive and negative 180 degrees. The trick is still reversing the definition with an opposed shift. When? When not? "-180" : that are 4 digits!! 360 is one less...to use elsewhere. Caught them on a loose stitch. L...

### Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

Hi all, I was working at a scaled output for Tile2Hatch. 8) An add-on to turn anything you like in a hatch. One day we will all create a hatch pattern in a few clicks. (Like me and John do nowadays) We used a common 6/8 decimal digit scheme with rather good looking patterns in inch. For metric users...
