I need help with a drill jig.

I have all the parts drawn. But my issue is in the assembly. I have the model assembled but when I try to do the drawing, it doesn't look like the paperwork. My issue is the hatch. I'm not sure how to fix it. Can someone show me how?

You control the cross hatching for section views in at least two places:
1. By applying a material to the SW part file
2. By applying an Area Hatch Annotation in the drawing.

I'd choose #2, especially if more than one part in your assembly uses the same material.
