Hatch select


it’d be great to be able to hatch a surface by just clicking on it. The same way as the shell command works. I’d be much quicker than selecting all lines separately.

Would be also great if you can actually snap a hatch. Like it works with a geometry.

You can do that in Rhino 6.

Very nice!! Great guys. I tried it out immediately.

Will you also be able to trim hatches?

Hi - We have that on our list as item RH-48707.
I’ve added your request.

Guys you are absolutely amazing! We know why we love Rhinoceros. Thanks a lot!

Hi wim,

That is great. Thanks for your effort

Hello - here’s a Python that lets you trim hatches, in case it helps. It’s slightly convoluted - you select a hatch, then the cutting curves then the pieces of the hatch to trim away.

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"
