Symbols to Always Face Camera

Question

Hi Everyone,

 

I have attached a video of a feature Sketchup has. I can't figure out how to do it in Vectorworks and was reaching out the community to see if it is possible. If not it would be a great addition.

 

I would like to choose a symbol and have it always face the camera. I know I can assign it to the screen plane, but then it doesn't remain where it is in the 3D space.

 

This feature is helpful to make a 2D object a little more 3D without adding a bunch of polygons.

 

Thank you

 

Maxwell

It's called an image prop in Vectorworks.

 

Just search the help section on how to create them.

Right, but I don't want to do this with an image. I was trying to achieve this same thing, but with a 2D symbol.
