In this article, we will check the quickest and easiest way to Convert a Solid to Hatch in AutoCAD. To do the trick, we will use an AutoLISP. You can find out what a LISP is and how to use it in Accelerate Your Work with AutoLISP! (Only 3 Easy Steps!)

I personally prefer to work with hatches instead of Solids as they are way more customizable and work better for me. So how to convert those objects into Hatches?
As previously said, to convert a solid object to Hatch we will use a lisp. The steps for conversion are below:
You will find that in addition to hatches, AutoCAD will export polylines for the solid objects boundaries.
