Select Hatch by Pattern Name

Hi all

Is there a way to select hatches by pattern name in Rhino?
This is a pretty straightforward thing in Autocad using the select similar command, but I am not aware of any way to do this in Rhino.

Many thanks!


Hi Patrick - here is a python that may help- I think it works OK (1.7 KB)

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

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

I see I could have it work from a selection as well, I’ll add that.
@patrick.s.allan - updated the script above to work from object selection.



Wonderful! Thanks a lot.
Having it work from a selection would be a definite plus, although, for the current project I am working on, it looks like there are several hatch patterns for what should essentially be the same hatch, so the tick boxes will probably come in handy.
