Is there a command that will change all the object's z-coordinate to "0". This will be used with mostly 2-d line object. i.e when you have left or right view everything is located on the x-y plane.

I was wondering the same thing. I have a drawing that has some lines, when viewed from the side, that start on the zero (Z) plane and end up somewhere in space on a different (z) plane. I've tried to use the properties box and reset the values of the starting (Z) axis and the ending (Z) axis to zero, but there's just too many lines to do this one at a time.

Anyone know a of a way to do this?

Thanks,
Brian

There are lots of lisps out there that do this. One is called
Flatten.lsp. others may be available at Dotsoft.com

or , you can try the attached file that I wrote for my own needs. It
takes lines (not plines , arc or circles) and moves the endpoints to
zero elevation.
