[SOLVED] - Layout - Manual Projection Direction

Good Day Dear Rhino-Professionals,

Probably I am just missing one simple command, but i can’t quite figure out how to create a tilted detail in a layout.

Lets say I want a Layout of the Pipe I attached Tilted_Ring.3dm (51.5 KB). And I want the detail to be projected orthogonal to the opening of the pipe, just like the viewport “Test2” i created, so i can give instructions on radius and in which angle something has to be attached
. How do i get this direction of view into my Layout-Detail? All I can choose from in the “add detail” command is “Projection=Top/Bottom/Left/Right/Front/Back/Perspective”. There has to be a way to take the Projection I created with my CPlane, am I right?

Sorry to create a Topic with such a bagatelle, but all tutorials and requests i could finde were about the general creation of Layouts with all kind of options - but nowhere this exact Detail was covered.

Best Regards,

Hello - you can make the detail active and change the view in the same way(s) you would in the modeling views. One way you’d create a custom CPlane on the location and orientation that you want to look at, set that CPlane in the detail and use the Plan command to orient the view,

So simple, yet i did not see it. Thank you for your help, it worked out perfectly fine!

Best Regards,
