On this data sheet:

http://www.molex.com/pdm_docs/sd/473460001_sd.pdf

they show the recommended solder footprint for this part.  Is there any significance to the fact that the hashmarks on the 5 pin pads are going a different direction than the hashmarks on the 6 larger pads?

are you making a stencil so a machine can screen paste it?

Nothing. It's just drafting style.

The (5) smaller lands are for the connections. The (6) larger lands are just for supports. Look at the mechanical drawings. 

(when you're pushing and pulling plugs, you don't want those (5) small lands to be the only thing holding your part on your PCB. They won't be able to take the stress. The bigger lands hold the part, i.e. welded to the PCB.)

No....just creating a new part for my Eagle library to use on my board.

Thanks!  That is what I thought but I wanted to be sure.

it might mean something if you were as its obviously different to attract your eye, but if your just laying out a pcb to make yourself its just style
