I used these commands years ago and cant remember what they are. I am designing furniture in 3D and want to view the object at SE Isometric, then rotate an additional 18 degrees, then take a screenshot that will basically give me a block that is a line drawing of the object with lines hidden. This is a question with two parts:
#1: How do I rotate from SE Isometric 18 degrees to get the view angle I want?
#2: How do I take a screenshot of the object that will produce a block with hidden lines?
There are two seperate commands for each of these, I just can't remember what they are. Thanks in advance.
Attached is a picture of the final product I'm looking for.
1: the command is 'vpoint' followed by the option 'rotate', this will tell you the angle that the view is set at now just add 18 degrees, and for the second angle press enter.
2: the command is 'hide' - I'm not sure what you mean by creating a block
I use Autocad LT so there maybe other commands available in full Autocad, I use those two to create the same views and it works just fine.

Flatshot was very similar to the command that I was thinking of, it acts a very much the same. Only difference is that it looks at the whole drawing if there is mulitple objects instead of one group II am zoomed into. I have to then explode the block and erase the parts I do not need. It works for a good substitute, thanks.
It seems that vpoint does the job, thanks! Although it wasn't the command I was thinking of. I guess there is more than one way to skin a cat!
Thanks again, if anyone thinks of anything else, please post your suggestion.
