These seamless textures has a resolution of 300dpi, I’ve scaled it to work perfectly on any drawings with 300 dpi. Below are 2 examples of what can be done with the use of these textures, click sketches/images for a higher resolution.

    • I believe it can be done, but it might be too ‘heavy’ for AutoCAD. AutoCAD is vector based software, whereas Photoshop is raster based. You will probably experience lag when you hatch it in AutoCAD.
