Q - question

Easier hatching between two polylines - Hatch2L.

A - answer With the free AutoCAD utility Hatch2L you can easily hatch an area between two polylines. Just select the base and the top curve and this application adds any missing side connecting lines between endpoints, and hatches separately the areas "above" (green) and "below" (red) if the lines are crossing, plus calculates the areas "above" and "below" (fill, cut).

You can download the LISP application Hatch2L from, load it with APPLOAD and start it by typing the HATCH2L command.

You can then edit the hatch to change its color and style (hatch pattern).
