3D Steel Connection

Recommended Posts

I am trying to model a 3d Steel Connection and still have grasped the use the of the 3D standard shapes under the detailing palette. How come when I place a 3D bolt or angle it always comes in the top plan no matter what I have my work plane set to. I would like to be able to switch view to a front view and place an 3D angle with the height going into the screen. Is that possible?

Place a 2d object in whichever plane you prefer.



This is basically what I ended up doing. Either that or place a 2D profile and then convert it to a 3D element. Then I can set Length. It seems like it would be much easier if the 3D tools actually recognized the active work plane.

Thanks for the other responses I will have to check out the plugin.
