Ramp pattern file code

I’m not sure if many of you have designed buildings with car ramps in them, but there is a typical convention of how to show the extent of ramps we use. I’ve been meaning for ages to create a hatch pattern for it, for a while. I guess I’m fed up of drawing model lines on the ramps (by the way we use sloped floors).

Anyway here is the code for a ramp that can be up to 20 meters wide and the hatch will work. Copy the below code into note pad and save it as whatever is your relevant naming system. Note this hatch is only good for straight ramps. Don’t bother to try to get it to go around corners.

Copy the italic text below into notepad and save as a NAME.pat file:


*Ramp Hatch 1000mm Spacing Lines at 30 degrees


0, 0, 0, 0, 10000

120, 0, 0, 577.4, 1000, 11547, -11547

240, 0, 0, -577.4, 1000, 11547, -11547
