Symbols to Always Face Camera


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

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.
