Hatches are drawn consistently between parts and set to origin, if you set the advanced option XS_SET_HATCH_ORIGIN_INTO_VIEW_ORIGIN to TRUE and the scaling and rotation of hatches to zero (0). The default value is FALSE.

For automatic hatches , the scale and rotation are set in the .htc file, for example, CONCRETE,0,hardware_LINES,,120 , where the value 0 (or empty) sets auto scale and rotation to false.

For manual hatches , the scale and rotation are set on the Fill tab of parts properties or shape properties dialog boxes, where you need to set the Scale option to Custom and select the Keep ratio of x and y check box.

In the example below, the parts that belong to the same cast unit are hatched consistently.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
