More Hatches

There are a number of standard symbols used in sections and elevations, for example earth, gravel, rubble, and batt insulation. It would be nice to have built in hatches for these. See the attached image files for a bunch of standard symbols for sections and elevations.

Note: I've tried creating a custom hatch from a brush for some of these. I haven't had much success yet. It would be really nice if more of these standard architectural hatches were just native to the product.

BTW: I've also see Macitect's symbol based hatches. Thank you for generously sharing these.
