Hatch outline

Is there a way to extract the outline of a hatch?

The annoying thing about hatches is that you cannot snap to them. Unless you turn on control points.
You can also not extract the outlines of a hatch.

So if you want to have the lines that define the outlines of a hatch, you have to turn on control points and then manually trace over the hatch.

It would be nice to have osnap and line extraction of hatches possible. Thanks.

Try to use DupBorder

Awesome. It works.

Thanks.

You can also make a copy of the hatch on the fly and then explode it so hatch becomes a surface and then you can snap to it’s edges (it works with solid hatches only).
