H2 -Hatching building elevations (as for H1 but described, rather than drawn)

All shown below are for "Measurement" variable set to "1" for Metric.

Scale for the hatches shown read well at a scale of 1:100 or 1:50 (coomon architectural scales)

but you can adjust to suit your requirements, remembering that a higher figure for "scale" gives a less dense look.

e.g. tick the "double" box and set the spacing & angle.

Rendered look wall finishes

Try either "Ar sand" hatch pattern at a scale of 2 (denser) to 6 (lighter) or

"Ar conc" hatch pattern at a scale of 1 (denser) to 2 (lighter).

Shading

Try either "Dots or "Ar sand"

i.e. Dots at a scale of 25 and angle of 45 gives a good shadow/shade line.
