Composite Wall Hatch Orientation

Oldguy001
Contributor

I have been stuck in the antiquated abyss of Archicad 11 for a long time.  I am discovering new and wonderful things in AC25 every day, but I'm kind of stuck on this one.  Here in South Florida, almost all houses are built with CMU, (Concrete Masonry Unit), or Concrete Block Walls.  I created a composite for this with Stucco Exterior, Furring and Gyp. Board Interior, and a Hatch Fill in the middle.  I would like to know if there is a way to have the hatch fill change it's orientation with the direction of the wall.  Please see the attached to illustrate the dilemma.

Have a look in the Building Material settings.

You probably have the fill set to 'Project Origin'.

Try 'Element Origin' instead.

Barry, you are a genius!  Thank you.

It would be useful if fill start point worked inside complex profiles. That could reduce polygon count a lot by avoiding the need to combine a lot of fills to create a complicated complex profile
