2D Projection

Creating a Single Projection

Multiple Projections: Default Views

Multiple Projections: All Views

Multiselection with Differing Rotation

2D Projection (register Edit, Tools group) enables you to create vectorized views of an object.

There are different possibilities: Interactively select a projection of your object or create multiple projections at once.

Creating a Single Projection

2D Projection is located in the Edit tab, Tools group.

1.Select an object in your drawing and click 2D Projection to start the process.

Projection_1_en

2.Click one of the planes projected around your object. Each plane marks a possible 2d image.

Projection_2_en

3.The projection is automatically generated and will be attached to your cursor.

Projection_3_en

4.Place your projection as desired and confirm with a click on your left mouse button.

Projection_4_en

Multiple Projections: Default Views

1.Select an object and click the 2D Projection button.

2.Open the context menu and select Default Views.

3.The projections are generated as vector images and can be placed freely.

Projection_5_de

Multiple Projections: All Views

1.Select an object and click the 2D Projection button.

2.Open the context menu and select All Views.

3.The projections are generated as vector images and can be placed freely.

Projection_6_de

Multiselection with Differing Rotation

You can use 2D Projection on multiselected objects as well. This will generate a joint 2d projection for all of the selected objects.

If your objects are placed at an angle to each other (other than 90°), you will be offered several selection planes for the projection. You decide from which point of view the joint projection for your objects will be created.  You can see this in the examples below.

Example 1: Projection of side view, oriented at chair.

Projection_7_en_multi_1

Projection_8_en_multi_2

Example 2: Projection of side view, oriented at table.

Projection_9_en_multi_3

Projection_10_en_multi_4
