Is there a way that you could have the option to constrain the perspective camera angle even if objects are removed?
I’ve attached a super simple example for Make2D. It’s more relevant in much more detailed models with a large number of layers and objects etc.
Notice that the perspective viewing angle is different.
Sometimes when I come back to a model and I’ve had to make changes to something such as the length of a counter etc, the Make2D output perspective view will change. This means it’s a lot of hard work to maintain drawings and/or exports as the perspective detail has to be redrawn and processed each time, where as the front view and side view/ plan etc remain the same.
Maybe it can be stored in the same manner as named views so there is a historical frame of reference where by if an object is removed or an object is added, the perspective product of Make2D is the same size and aspect?
I guess without going into the detail of work outside of Rhino the best argument I can put forward is within layouts. If you detail something in plan, elevation and perspective all of the dims and leaders for the perspective output will be wrong when updated but plan and elevation can be updated very quickly.
For me (maybe not others) the Make2D command is a way to create quick 2D drawings and the perspective output is as important as the plan and elevation. The fact that the perspective view isn’t (or can’t be set as) static feels like a failing. It’s hopefully something that can be amended easily?
