Hatching of spline shapes element

Postby rob » Sat Sep 19, 2009 9:49 am

First of all: I'm new in qcad. I'm using free version now.

Problem I have:
I need to hatch element with irregular shape (splines) and it doesn't work. Hatching of rectangle works fine. Are there some limitation in qcad free version, or maybe some other way of dealing with splines etc.?

you need to explode a spline profile in order to hatch it:
  1. draw the spline;
  2. select the spline and explode it;
  3. select all the lines of the exploded profile;
  4. hatch the element.
