3D to 2D


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this has been asked before but i couldn't find anything on it. Ive used CAD before in high school using prodesktop and am now using autocad. In pro desktop I could convert a 3D model into 2D engineering drawings. Just wondering is it possible to do the same thing in AutoCAD I have the 2010 version of it. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

Welcome to the forum AndyArbs

The answer to your question is very simple.

Just get the view you want of your 3d model on the screen &

use the "FLATTEN" command, then select the desired objects.

This will flatten all selected 3d objects on to one plane.

Be sure to keep a copy of your original 3d model.

 

Regards

Vivian.

Could that be "Flatshot" you were referring to Vivian?

 

There are other methods too. They include SolProf, and the combination commands SolView/SolDraw.

No Remark it is "Flatten" & works well with me, atleast in 2010

My command line pasted below

 

Command:

Command: _qsave

Command: flatten

Initializing...

Select objects to convert to 2d...

Select objects: *Cancel*

I would not use flatten. I would use flatshot or solview, soldraw.

But coming from Pro/Desktop you are going to struggle with AutoCAD. You would be better off taking your model into Autodesk Inventor.

Students can get Inventor for free from http://engineersrule.org
