AutoCAD Tips: Images and Shadows
A couple of weeks ago I was teaching an AutoCAD class and there were questions about using hatch as shadows, masks and images. I created this short video to help you understand the uses and also utilize ‘Superhatch’ (which is part of the AutoCAD Express Tools) to create hatch using tile-able images. To the right is the finished image. See the video below to see how.
I hope that helps you stay ahead. Let me know if you run into any questions or concerns around this by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
