So you want someone here to create a custom hatch pattern.  What are you willing to pay?

I happen to have one quite similar to that:
 
*LATT60,LATTICE-WORK AT 60 DEGREES, 1" SLATS, 3" GAPS
60,0,0,0,4
60,1.1547,0,0,4
120,0,0,2.3094,4,3.4641,-1.1547
120,1.1547,0,2.3094,4,-1.1547,3.4641
 
Are you capable of figuring out how to alter that for your size and proportions?
 
Also, you will need to decide whether the 70x120 diamond dimensions are the critical thing, or an actual 60-degree angle is wanted [yours is only about 1/4 of a degree off of 60].  If the former, the angle designators above will have to be changed as well as the offsets and pen-down/pen-up numbers.  If the latter, the angles above are good.

Pefect!! that's awesome. I have another which is the same, but 100 across and 170 top to bottom. Which valus would I change on the txt file?

Thank you

Edit: actually, it's a bit off - the bars are 20 when they need to be 32 :(

You can make your own, at whatever sizes and/or proportions and/or angles you want.  Read about it in Help [>>here<< for 2018, but no different for earlier versions], draw up your specifics in a limited area, and use the image for what values to put where in the pattern definitions.
