Hey Guys I really appreciate the replies so far

 

I have searched up and down the internet and clicked countless buttons, but I cant seem to find the answer. Here is my issue, I want to create a custom set of 2D symbols/blocks to represent various receptacles, fire protection, etc. I want these symbols to show up as 3D devices when in 3D view.

 

I have attached an example file containing a default receptacle that showcases all the features I need.

 

My question is, how can I create custom blocks for my company that function just like the standard blocks/receptacles that came with the program?

 

Any and all help would be immensely appreciated, I am a new intern at this company and they have stuck me on a seemingly insurmountable task. Please help guide me.

 

Thank you,

Sinan Najm

I might be wrong, but I think you need to look into content builder and creating mvpart (Multi-view part).

Multi-view parts do what you require, give you different views from different vpoints

If you have a 3d model of your device, try converting it to mvpart and then insert it by "mvpartadd".

Yes! I think thats exactly what I need. I found a video of a multi-view part and it looks like exactly what I am looking for.

Do yall know of any good tutorials or explanation on how to utilize the multi-view block creator/content builder?
