3D to 2d Conversion Ability

Question

I will admit it has been awhile since my last post. I did however get to see Version 10 at the April 5th JLC Trade Show in Providence, RI.

Is there a way to convert 3D walls, roofs, etc. to 2D so one could apply hatches and other details without having to draw in 2d to begin with. Why the duality?

Sincerely,

RL

You can use convert to lines or convert to polygons on those objects, but there are better ways. Roof faces can be hatched, simply hatch the 2-D object you turn into a roof (or edit group on it, and modify the existing 2-D poly.) Walls can be hatched by defining cavities for them.

Thank You for the feedback. When will one be able to apply hatches to 3D objects or are we still limited to textures for material applications in 3D. I am using version 9.5.2 Architect with Landmark and Renderworks 9.5.

Did you fix the hatch problem on roofs being applied to fascia? Is there an option for shadow boards, and hip returns in 3D. This would be great when showing Isometric views or flyovers to clients!
