SHADES

Specify shading patterns and thresholds.

1 to 17 parameters:

  1. Shading (fill) pattern, interval 1
  2. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 1
  3. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 2
  4. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 2
  5. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 3
  6. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 3
  7. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 4
  8. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 4
  9. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 5
  10. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 5
  11. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 6
  12. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 6
  13. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 7
  14. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 7
  15. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 8
  16. [Optional] Upper numerical limit for interval 8
  17. [Optional] Shading (fill) pattern, interval 9
MicroCAM fill patterns and codes

fill pattern

Note:
The upper numerical limit for the current interval and the Shading (fill) pattern for the next interval are repeated for each new interval; this command must have an odd number of parameters; the last interval is bounded by infinity.

Example:

SHADES 21,25,3,75,5,125,6
Sets the following intervals specifying patterns for use with the SHADE and SHADEXY commands:

Limit
< 25
25 to < 75
75 to < 125
> 125
Pattern
21
3
5
6

This command would cause the SHADE example above to be filled with pattern 3.
