Creating Custom Cut-to-shape Crosshatched Lines in Illustrator

I’ve been an X-Carve user for a while now and started getting into laser cutting. I found a new technique in illustrator for creating crosshatched lines that can be cut to any custom shape without manually cutting each line. This technique was created for small laser etched lines, but could be applied for carving as well. I made a video tutorial as well as a step by step instructions on my site. This is my first instructional video so I hope its clear enough. If not, please let me know and i’ll elaborate. Still not quite sure the best way to explain what this technique is, so for now its just,“Creating custom crosshatch cut-to-shape lines.”
