3D Steel Shape

Recommended Posts

I am glad to see that Vectorworks is starting to incorporate more 3D capabilities. Now I can place a 2D steel profile on workplane which is nice. Although there are a couple issues that I don't understand why they work like the do.

1. If I convert the 2D steel shape to a 3D object, the new shape gets put into the model perpendicular to my view. Who ever thought that this is be a great function should be downgraded. Obviously if I place a 2D steel shape on a work plane, then this is where the profile should be and if I convert it to a 3d object it should be perpendicular to the work plane regardless of how I am looking at it.

2. If I set my work plane, then try and place a 3D steel shape it ignores my work plane and always places it vertically.
