Flatshot Dialog Box

    Flatshot Dialog Box

    Creates a 2D representation of all 3D objects based on the current view.

    The edges of all 3D solids and surfaces are projected line-of-sight onto a plane
    parallel to the viewing plane. The 2D representations of these edges are inserted
    as a block on the XY plane of the UCS. This block can be exploded for additional changes. The result can
    also be saved as a separate drawing file.

    List of Options

    The following options are displayed.

    Destination

    Controls where the flattened representation is created.

    Insert As New Block

    Specifies to insert the flattened representation as a block in the current drawing.

    Replace Existing Block

    Replaces an existing block in the drawing with the newly created block.

    Select Block

    Closes the dialog box temporarily while you select the block you are replacing in
    the drawing. When you finish selecting the block, press Enter to re-display the Flatshot
    dialog box.

    Block Selected / No Block Selected

    Indicates whether a block has been selected.

    Export to a File

    Saves the block to an external file.

    Foreground Lines

    Contains controls for setting the color and linetype of lines that are not obscured
    in the flattened view.

    Color

    Sets the color of lines that are not obscured in the flattened view.

    Linetype

    Sets the linetype of lines that are not obscured in the flattened view.

    Obscured Lines

    Controls whether lines that are obscured in the drawing are displayed in the flattened
    view, and sets the color and linetype of these obscured lines.

    Show

    Controls whether obscured lines are shown in the flattened representation. When selected,
    the 2D flattened representation displays lines hidden by other objects.

    Color

    Sets the color of lines that lie behind geometry in the flattened view.

    Linetype

    Sets the linetype of lines that lie behind geometry in the flattened view.

    Include Tangential Lines

    Creates silhouette edges for curved surfaces.

    Create

    Creates the flattened view.
