Insulation hatch on complex profiles

Ignacio

I want this insulation bit on a complex profile to be drawn as belonging to a vertical wall, and I can't get it to work by rotating the shape or the hatch vector. It seems to follow the orientation of the rectangle —the moment I stretch it or trim it so that it is shorter than wider (as in the second picture), the symbol rotates as if it belonged to a horizontal wall. I must be missing something obvious.Screen Shot 2021-09-16 at 11.41.29 PM.pngScreen Shot 2021-09-16 at 11.42.06 PM.png

if you add hotspots on the two longest sides of your fill in order to break those sides in smaller segments than the smallest sides, it will rotate the orientation.

This is tied in with the "Fit to skin" logic. In these situations I find the fill will rotate to parallel with the longest side. So as the previous post, look at breaking your fills down to suit alignment requirements and try to avoid perfect squares...
