I recently upgraded to Rhino 7.0 hoping that this feature would finally be included in the Display Modes, but to my dismay I still do not see this being included. It is unacceptable that this has been a wish list item, since possibly 2013 in Rhino 5.0! I work extensively with Rhino for large architecture and infrastructure projects, and if I am not able to produce vector linework from the viewports or in the layout tabs, then I have to abandon Rhino and produce documents using other software. This other software, even as ancient as AutoCAD has this feature to produce vector linework from a hidden line mode, while newer platforms such as Revit also has this feature, and SketchUp, among others. It’s embarrassing that I advocate so much for our office to use Rhino for production, but when our documents are printed with raster graphics - which is still our only output option in Rhino - and our internal team and consultants aren’t able to use pdf measuring tools for scaling purposes, then I am essentially derided for sharing documents that are deemed unusable. McNeel, get with the current times and needs of people who use your software in the business of not just design/modeling, but producing technical drawings of our designs!
Make2D is not a solution! Just give us the option to either turn off hidden lines in a Wireframe style display mode, or using one of the technical styles that even with a Shade feature on, that should still have the ability to produce the linework as vectors. There is also no need for any of us to have to rely on a 3rd party plugin such as VisualArq, when I don’t need the huge list of features that come with that platform. We just need a display mode that functions exactly the same way that all other software platforms in our industry provide as a standard.
