    Posted: 27.Jun.2024 at 20:33
I can sometimes make a hatch pattern when I need one, but I have one that is too difficult for me to figure out how to create it from scratch. Incidentally, I'm still using AutoCAD 2011 Lt. Apparently the new AutoCAD versions make it easy to create a hatch pattern, but my version has no such ability. I'm very close to upgrading to the latest version of AutoCAD Lt, but I need a hatch patern before then. Does anyone know of a service or person that could create a hatch patern for me. There are some programs that I have tried but they could not do what I needed. and i don't want to spend a lot of money because I don't often need to make new hatch patterns and I'm going to be getting the the latest AutoCAD Lt soon. Attached is a .dwg of what I need. I included the pattern four time in the drawing to show how the pattern is supposed to repeat. Any help with this would be appreciated.uploads/569326/Porcelain_Pavers_Hatch_Patern.dwg

That looks very much [but not exactly] like a "standard" pseudo-random pattern called a "French tiling."  I attach a .zip file containing two such patterns I made a while back, including a version that is 1 drawing unit square for the smallest components, to use at a scale of whatever edge length you want for those, and one exactly at the size of yours [8 units square for the smallest components] which you can use at a scale of 1.
If that is "too different" from your pattern, I'm sure yours could be defined, but first see whether the French tiling pattern will serve your purposes.

Yours on the left, TileFrench8 [at a scale of 1] on the right:
