I’m currently working on a project for which we use Rhinoceros to model a large quantity of architectural study cases. Projects are being remodeled quite precisely, and now comes the time to output them as drawings.
Most of our output is axonometric drawing that we want to work as vectors. The current process involves :
- Make2D in isometric view (and rescaling it)
- Cleaning the Make2D, checking if some stuff were not rendered properly
- Coloring the 2D drawing with hatches
Coloring the drawing takes a huuuuge amount of time, especially since we’re differentiating the faces from their orientation (see images below), in order to color them with different colors in Illustrator later (this part in Illustrator has been scripted, so at least we’re gaining time on that afterwards).
My question is the following : how hard would that be to automate this action? What I have in mind would be a kind of Make2D that transforms surfaces into hatches.
Let me know if something is unclear, and thank you in advance for the input you can provide!
