3D drawing to 2D plane

153 Views, 3 Replies

Is there a way of projecting a 3D drawing (solids, surfaces, and 2d objects)
onto a plane? A bit like SOLPROF but with all objects. This is to get 2D
views from a 3D design with layers, colours, etc.

Thanks
Stu

If you have solids & 3dfaces, it's difficult. You can plot out to another format
& re-import but lose scale & geometric precision & probably layers too.

Like plot to a DXB file: you will loose layers and colors, but it will be
flat.

Plotting to DWF and importing DWF, with DWF=>DWG converter from http://www.intelcad.com will preserve scale, layers and colors (you
lose all that when using DXB for flattening). The precision will depend on how accuracy is set in DWF plotting.
