The Make2D command projects geometry to the construction plane to make a 2-D drawing.
Note: The Make2D command creates curves from the selected NURBS objects as silhouettes relative to the default construction planes. The silhouette curves are projected flat and then placed on the world x,y-plane.

|2.||Specify the layout and object visibility options.|
2-D Drawing Options
Creates the 2-D drawing from only the currently active view.
Creates the 2-D drawing from the plan view of the active viewport and the results are placed on that viewport's construction plane.
Creates four views with US (third angle) layout, using world-coordinate orthographic projections (not view or construction plane directions of current viewports).
Creates four views with European (first angle) layout, using world-coordinate orthographic projections (not view or construction plane directions of current viewports).
Show tangent edges
Draws tangent edges of polysurfaces.
Show hidden lines
Draws hidden lines on the Hidden layers specified.
Show viewport rectangle
Draws a rectangle representing the viewport edge. This applies only to perspective views.
Maintain source layers
The output is placed on a layer with the same name as the input geometry.
Otherwise, the output is placed on layers organized as sub-layers under the layers specified.
Layers for Make2D objects
Select a layer name for visible lines or type a new layer name.
Select a layer name for visible tangent edges or type a new layer name.
Visible clipping planes
Select a layer name for visible clipping plane intersections or type a new layer name.
Select a layer name for hidden lines or type a new layer name.
Select a layer name for hidden tangent edges or type a new layer name.
Hidden clipping planes
Select a layer name for hidden clipping plane intersections or type a new layer name.
Select a layer name for dimensions or type a new layer name.
Resets layer names to default names.
|●||The Make2D command does not create 2‑D drawings from mesh objects.|
|●||If two objects pass through each other, the Make2D command will not create the intersection line where the objects intersect. Use the Intersect command to generate this curve and include it in the objects you want to make into a 2‑D drawing.|
|●||If silhouettes are nearly overlapping another curve in the view, they may not appear on the correct layer.|
|●||While a single surface cylinder seam will not display, the two linear seams of a cylinder made out of two semi-cylinders will both display.|
