Q - question

Where to get additional hatches and linetypes for AutoCAD or LT?

A - answer See for hatch pattern and complex linetype libraries. You can also make your own .LIN linetypes (MKLTYPE Express Tool) and .PAT hatch patterns (HGEN utility). Hatch patterns are applicable also in Revit.

To load the additional linetypes, copy the .LIN files to your AutoCAD Support directory and use the AutoCAD LINETYPE command.
