Make 2‑D Drawing

The Make2D command projects geometry to the construction plane to make a 2-D drawing.

The Make2D command creates curves from the selected objects as silhouettes relative to the default construction planes. The silhouette curves are projected flat and then placed on the world xy plane.

Steps

  1. Select the objects.
  2. Specify the layout and object visibility options.

2-D Drawing Options

View

Specifies the view to use for the projection. The list includes standard and named views.

Projection

View

Creates the 2-D drawing from only the currently active view.

Notes

CPlane

Creates the 2-D drawing from the plan view of the active viewport and the results are placed on that viewport's construction plane.

Third angle projection

Creates four views with US (third angle) layout, using world-coordinate orthographic projections (not view or construction plane directions of current viewports).


First angle projection

Creates four views with European (first angle) layout, using world-coordinate orthographic projections (not view or construction plane directions of current viewports).


Options

Object properties
From input objects

Copies properties from the input objects.

By output layers

Properties are determined by the output layers.

Maintain source layers
Tangent edges

Draws tangent edges of polysurfaces.

Hidden lines

Draws hidden lines on the Hidden layers specified.

Scene silhouette

Draws object silhouettes in a heavier line weight.

Clipping plane intersections

Draws clipping plane intersection lines.

Viewport rectangle

Draws a rectangle representing the viewport edge. This applies only to perspective views.

Group output

Groups the output curves by the source objects.

Register with previous

Attempts to make the output curves match with the previous. This option only works with the View option in the Projection settings.

"Register with previous" is enabled.
"Register with previous" is disabled.

How it works

Maintaining a registered parallel view is easy, but any view manipulations would change a registered perspective view and cause "Register with previous" to fail. When it fails, a new view is registered for next use.

Note:
 

Layer name

Set the parent layer of the 2-D drawing output. Different types of curves are categorized by sublayers.
