2D Symbol

Many 3D symbols do originally not have a 2D representation. This can be the case, for example, with self-constructed objects. If the 3D layers are then hidden via the Layer Filter (Start tab), the affected elements no longer have a visible representation.

The 2D Symbol button (Edit tab, Tools group) automatically calculates the 2D equivalent for 3D models. Multiselection is possible.




The 2D Symbol button can also be used to replace existing 2D symbols. For articles with commercial data, the 2D representation is replaced by the original 2D symbol as soon as the item is opened or updated for editing.
