  • Creating a Hybrid Symbol

    PVA - Admin

    A hybrid symbol is one that includes both 2D and 3D components. 


    1) To create a hybrid symbol, create the 3D part, then the 2D part in Top/Plan view. 


    2) Once drawn, align the 2D and 3D parts using the Tool > Align command, and select them all. 


    3) Switch to 2D Plan projection. Run the Create Symbol command from the Organize menu. 


    The hybrid symbol is now available in the Resource Browser.

     Can you clarify?  Screen Plane was deprecated (VW 2022?) and is only available if you enable legacy 2D features in Document Preferences.  


     Do you mean draw "the 2D part in Top/Plan view" (0 on a numeric keypad)?  It still goes on a Design Layer.

    It's the same thing basically, however, it seems to work better with the legacy feature enacted.  23 has a lot of funny little glitches here and there.
