Creating Dense Hatch in AutoCAD

Question
Why won't AutoCAD create my dense hatch?

 

Answer
AutoCAD sets a default limit of 10000 segments. If the hatch that would be created would exceed that, AutoCAD refuses to create the hatch. However you can change the default value to any number from 100 to 10,000,000. To increase the value, enter the following at the command prompt. The example shows increasing the value to 100,000. Note that the name MaxHatch is case sensitive and must be entered as shown.

Command: (setenv ""MaxHatch"" ""100000"")"
