Creating pattern files

Recommended Posts

How do I create a pattern file?

 

Be nice if we could insert a map so it could match up perfectly without having to adjust anything.

 

See material attached I don't see any .pat file to look anything like this material.

Also tried to create a .pat file in PS but no luck. I see pat files in PS though cannot export them to use in CA.

Chief can use any pattern file that follows the .pat format developed by AutoDesk - they are not compatible with programs that use the Adobe pattern format. There are several resources on the web that explain how to create a pattern using the .pat format. Other ways include commercial programs that will turn CAD entities into a pattern file, and AutoLisp routines for AutoCAD that will do the same.

You could support a Countryman , there is An Australian Company which makes Hatchkit, which works well I have been told by several users who have it ...

for simple rectangular patterns I use cad hatch's excel based spreadsheet (free) they also have free patterns for use.
