i would like to know how to convert hatch object to solid object. Or convert closed polyline in solid object with boundaries of that poliline.  Does it exist such possibility?
Thanks in advance

You can get a 3D solid from a closed entity like a REGION that you will EXTRUDE at height or along a path or REVOLVE around an axis or other possibilities.
Eventually see my AutoCAD file : 3D SOLIDS 01.dwg that you will find in the CAD/BIM Blocks here in the site.
It shows the main 3D AutoCAD commands.
P.S. What do you know about 3D like everything about UCS settings, Point of views, commands, etc... ?

As mentioned, read about commands like EXTRUDE, REVOLVE, PRESSPULL, LOFT, SWEEP.

If you have a Hatch pattern but do not have its boundary to Extrude [or whatever], you can select it, right-click, and choose Generate Boundary, which will do so, and you can use those 3D-making commands on the resulting Polyline or Region.
