hatch pattern too dense. hatch pattern generation aborted

Post by turtle » Mon Apr 08, 2019 3:33 am

Code: Select all

I tried to make a hatch in my drawing and now qcad is slowing down to a crawl and I am getting the following on my console:

Changing to a solid fill fixes the issue.
File attached.
Thanks

There's a timeout to make sure the display can be refreshed within a reasonable time frame. You can adjust this setting under:
Edit > Application Preferences > Graphics View > Appearance > Display and Performance > Timeout for hatch rendering

Thanks for the quick reply!
Is there a way I can change the hatch in that drawing at that scale so it does not slow down Qcad?

1. Select > Select All
2. View > Property Editor
3. Change "Selection:" to "Hatch (7)"
4. Change property "Scale" from "0.00425" to "10"

You might have to do some cleaning up, since there are several hatches on top of each other.

Thank you, I find it really helps to have the printed copy of your book, but I am still going to have lots of questions on here. :mrgreen:
I see now my 7 attempts were successful just at the wrong scale ;)
I never thought it would let me put a hatch on a hatch.
I take it the best way to clean it up to
Rectangle select that area, and click detect duplicates, then click the eraser ?

Thanks!
