Is there a way to make a dwg/dxf file into a hatch on rhino?

Hatch Kit - Rev01.dxf (3.2 MB)

check those older topics about custom hatch and .pat files…

Thank you, but how to change it into a .Pat file? any guidance as i’ve been trying to research for while. I do have autocad ones which have been made on the internet. But i want to know how to do it on a MAC.

my guess - there is not a simple file-import / file-export or conversion approach.
for sure easiest is to search the web for existing, similar patterns.
“autocad pat hatch” directly do an image - search.

  • that is also my recommendation.

.pat files are simple text files.

you can use any text editor to design your own pattern.
here is the documentation:
