Glazing Hatch Tick in Elevations

Hi!

Is there a quick way to get glazing elements to show glazing hatch/tick symbols in elevation, similar to how you'd denote glazing in old school 2D drafting? See image.

Right now I've just created a simple object with the 3 lines representing the glazing hatch symbol and copy it all over the place. As you can imagine, this is very time consuming and a pain to update when elevations change. Is there a way to have AC automatically show this symbol over glazing?

Cheers!

Add to the glass material a vectorial hatch.
It is tricky to get it perfect but it will work automatically

I know this is an old topic but I've got an issue with my glazing hatch fill. It works fine except in a double French door, the hatch mirrors on one of the doors. The door is a standard Archicad D2 Transom 24. Any ideas how to solve this?

Not solvable because it is mirrored in GDL which is a bug by GS the library part.
Solution is to send it as a bug to your reseller and hope the fix it someday.
I gave up on this a long time ago.

As Eduardo said, it is the way the object is scripted.
Does the door allow you to set different glass (or infill) materials to each door?
If so you could make a reverse glass material and use that for one of the doors.

I don't believe that door object allows different materials for each door. I'll just go back to drafting the glazing hatch in 2D
