MicroCAM fill patterns and codes

fill pattern

Note:
Fill patterns will not print from within MicroCAM due to limitations in the Windows floodfill function; you can print maps with filled areas by exporting them as .BMP files and printing them with a graphics editor such as Windows Paint. Maps with filled areas can also be cut to the clipboard and pasted into other applications for printing. Filled areas are not exported to either HPGL or AutoCAD files.

Example:

FILL 30,,,-100,,,2
Fill a bounded area at 30N, 100W (a point in Texas) with pattern 2.
