A bit like a new feature in AutoCAD 2021 I’m wondering if diffing 2d drawings in Rhino could be used for automatic merging of changes between drawings generated with the
Make2D command considering both the changes in the 3D model and separate, manual changes added directly to the 2d drawing (manual corrections like removing duplicate lines, amending the colours, cleaning up intersections, etc.).
I imagine they would be saved as separate files, but perhaps using Rhino’s snapshots or putting them on separate layers would be faster.
I imagine you would have three files:
- the original make2d (before the manual changes)
- manually updated make2d (main drawing)
- new make2d (after 3D changes)
Then the algorithm™ would compare the differences between these three by:
discarding the changes in 3. found between 1. and 2. and
adding the changes to 2. found between 2. and 3..
