Diagonal lines for brush stroke or dashed stroke


I would like to stroke a path with 45 degree diagonal lines that are set a fixed distance of of 0.125 inches to each other.

I'd also like the diagonals not to distort on curves- in other words, I want the diagonals to remain straight line segments that are parallel to the tangent of a curve at a any point.

I hope this is clear.

Is this possible?


This is for laser cutting a pattern - Adam's solution works nicely.

Slashed Stroke

Something like this?

I kinda hacked it, so hopefully someone has a proper way to do this.

What I did here was use the text tool over the path, and fill it with pipes | (Shift + \)(above the return key).

Next I changed the tracking, baseline, and text rotation in the Character window to get the lines spaced and angled properly.

Hopefully this is what you're looking for. If not, hope it steers you in the right direction!
