3D "plan" view - I saw this somewheres

Recommended Posts

I've been playing with a rendered cabinet view of a plan but can't seem to get exactly what I want. It seems to me I saw a beautiful example here of a plan view that was rendered as a cabinet view, I think it was either a white card or grey render but can't find it. Anyone able to help jog this old geezer's memory?

Dear old geezer. I'm not quite sure what you are after but I've always been inspired by @Jonathan Reeves7 and his amazing visuals. He is at JRA Architects in the UK and is also a VW reseller and trainer. Hope this helps! Cheers D

Thanks. Nice work but not what I'm after. It was essentially a Plan view that was viewed in what I thought was perspective view (if that makes sense). & I seem it recall it was either white card or grey scale. It may have been a video or a how to, but for the life of me I can't find it. I gotta lay off the hot peppers before bed time as I may have dreamed it.😉

Can't read your mind on this, but are you alluding to just setting up a plan view, and using 'perspective' as opposed to an orthogonal view??

Like the attached file?   I lowered the resolution a bit, but you get the gist, I imagine.

IF so it is pretty easily achieved.

Thanks Kevin, 

Very nice image!

I've done similar views but what I seem to remember was a very dramatic White card or Grey scale image of a main floor that I thought was on the service select but can't find it.

if you could perhaps be a bit more specific or post an image and try to explain what you wish to achieve, I would be happy to assist, as I am sure others here would do the same.

Perhaps it was this thread?


In case this wasn’t the one you were thinking of, I found it by searching google images for “plan site:forum.vectorworks.net”.
