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.
