Q - question

How to make my own new hatch pattern?

A - answer You can make your own .PAT file using a text editor - see the Customization Guide. Or - much more conveniently - you can use an addon application HGEN which converts a block or any other part of a drawing automatically to a hatch pattern (.PAT). Making a new hatch is much easier with HGEN.
