Make2d with dimensions

Is there a way to have the dimensions included with a Make2D view from the perspective window and Make2D set to Current View? They come in if it is set to current cplane if the cplane is set to world top. Otherwise they are missing. I tried setting my cplane to View and typing plan at the command line but that didn’t work.


Hi Dennis - it looks like not…


Grrrr. Sure would be handy!

Have you tried Copy-inplace / Hide for the dimensions you need, then explode the dimensions? You have to explode the dimension, then explode the dimension text again or the text won’t show. A bit of a clumsy workaround, but I’ve used in the past to get the job done.

Thanks Matt. That did the trick. The arrows and text lose their fill but at least they’re visible!


You can use solid hatch to colour it all in again…

one way is to explode the annotation and also the text, then make 2D. it works.

I ended up with this workaround today… so much work for such simple things… (but I guess that’s Rhino’s tag line). :wink:
