is a three-dimensional graphics directive specifying that objects that follow are to be drawn with closely spaced parallel lines.
uses the density d of shading.
uses lines with the specified color col.
uses lines with the specified color col and density d.
- HatchShading is also known as cross-hatching.
- HatchShading is typically used to create tonal effects with closely spaced parallel lines.
- HatchShading[d,col] specifies that lines of color col should vary with overall density d.
- The density of lines is driven by the luminosity of the surface. Less dense areas are where there is high luminosity.
- The density d is between 0 and 1. A higher value indicates more lines per area.
- The color col can be defined by RGBColor, Hue or any other color specification.
- In HatchShading[d], the color of lines is taken to be Black.
- HatchShading[col] uses a density of 0.5.
- HatchShading is effectively equivalent to HatchShading[0.5,Black].
- The setting Lighting"Accent" uses a directional light and faithfully reproduces colors on the surface.
