Wish: Multiple Hatch File Import Option

The dialogue for importing hatches only allows selection of one file at a time.
I know it’s handy to have a bunch of hatches presaved into a .3dm and they will all be imported at once,
but if it’s possible to allow multiple files, it’d still make it much easier in the event that’s not an option.

For example, I’ve got a few folders filled with 100+ Autocad .pat hatch files.


I hacked this Python script together quickly, it should import all .pat hatch pattern files in a selected folder. Let me know how it works.

And just in case, here’s one that allows you to select the files to import from a multi list box…

Wow, that was fast. Works like a charm.
Still would be nice to have some more integrated method, but as it is, this solution is worth every penny. :wink:
