Placing a 3D symbol


Recommended Posts


I wish to create a 3D symbol and place it at a selected location on my drawing.

I begin in Left Isometric view and I have picked a point (GetPt3D).

I then create a symbol (BeginSym ... EndSym).

After the symbol is created I retreive it with Symbol (SymName, 0, 0, 0); and then Move3D (pX, pY, xZ);

Move3D puts it in the right place but the Symbol procedure only works in 2D.

What should I be doing to get this to work?

Been working on it for a while and came up with:

GetPt3D ( pX, pY, pZ, False);

GetView (xAngleR, yAngelR, zAngleR, offsetX, offsetY, offsetZ);

SetView (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);

Draw_3D; { My new symbol }

Symbol (SymName, 0, 0, 0); { Get my new symbol }

Move3D (pX, pY, pZ);

SetView (xAngleR, yAngelR, zAngleR, offsetX, offsetY, offsetZ);

I hope vw2011 has a Symbol3D (SymName, pX, pY, pZ);
