I am trying to move a part of a dwg from front plane to the top-plan but i can't find a way to do it.
I want to move it because i have imported a 3D drawing of a ship from another program and now i want to make a GA-plan. To make a GA-plan i need a cross section cut and a cut form above. I have the two cuts from the 3D drawing but i don't know how to get them bouth on the top plane. Right now i have the cut from above on the top-plan and the crosssecton on the front-plan and that is no good.
See the attachments to make it more clear.
I would very much appreciate any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the quick reply, but I am relatively new to autocad so I'm afraid that I will need a little more instructions then that.
It seems that i only have a WCS and in i want to have a usc i need to define one...
I hope to here more from you.
OP if you make 2 viewports you can assign views to them from your views toolbar or tab. Make one front and one top. The UCS should automatically align to whichever view you are in. If it doesn't, just type UCS View and it should change. The idea is to make the front view current, then copy the object, then switch to the top view and make it current, and then paste the object there. Afterwards you want to type in UCS World.
Of course that makes 2 of the 3D objects. You may want to consider these extra steps -- open a new drawing, go into the front view and make its UCS current, and then copy the object to the new drawing. then use the FLATSHOT command to make a 2D representation of that front view. it can be reinserted as a block. Now you can copy and paste it back to the top view of your original drawing...
