I have a drawing that was drawn in 3D CAD and I need to convert to 2D CAD. I changed the view, but I cannot remember what the command is I need to type in to change to 2D. Can anyone help?

Command "FLATTEN" if you want to select only particular objects to make 2D.

If it is solids 3D - forget flatshot forget flatten (old technology).

 

viewbase is the command you need.
