Axis wrong on imported STEP file

Recommended Posts

I've never used a STEP file before. Imported my first one this morning and the Top/Plan view gives me a front elevation view. Is there a way to reset the axes? Screenshot of Top/Plan view   attached, I am unable to attach a .STEP file to this forum. I am a new Vectorworks user and don't know where to start.

Two suggestions.

1. Try again, but set the view to Front before you import.

2. Group the objects, go to a side view, Rotate the object 90/270 degrees as required to get the UP pointing up.


And an extra one for ducks.

3. Always import into a new blank file so something like this does not corrupt a lot of work in an existing drawing and then reference or copy/paste into the file you need the data in.
