millwork fill pattern

Recommended Posts

I have added a column on the front porch.  Is there a way to make the column symbol have a fill pattern in plan view?

Technically no but there are a few ways you could get around this.  Place a polyline with fill over your displayed symbol, or create a cad block with lines and assign that to replace the 2D block that the symbol uses.

You can also create an Architectural Block using a closed molding polyline (no molding assigned) to supply the desired fill. Then you can add to/pull from library and copy/paste elsewhere as a single object.

Thanks everyone.  Seems a bit strange that a column on the front porch would have no fill, but it's not a big deal I guess.   thanks again!

It can have a Fill using Open Symbol>2D Block.  You just can’t get a PATTERN that way.
