I know this has been a long standing issue, but is there any hope that “Make2d” is going to improve in the near future. I’m using a 2003 copy of SolidWorks on a Windows XP boot to do my 2D drawings, and this is for really simple parts. Just so I’m clear, it is quicker to save from Rhino as STEP, shut down the computer and then restart and reboot into XP, and then create my 2D drawing, and then shut down, reboot to W7, import back into Rhino to keep going. It’s not that Rhino takes a long time to create a 2D drawing, it is just that the output is garbage. How can a straight line that is 30 inches long come out as 23 segments?
I have the same workflow for any but the most basic filleting operations. There have even been a few times I’ve booted into Windows 95 to use Rhino 2 to do my filleting. How can software that is at least 10 years old be outperforming the current build of Rhino???
Is there any hope this is ever going to change or should I start looking for another 3d program? I realize this sounds belligerent but once again I find myself up against a deadline and Rhino, for as much as I like it and have invested in it, is forcing me to thrash through another all-nighter. Again, apologies for my angst, but there is no way that modern software should be outdone by ancient software, and there is no way I will get sucked into buying Rhino 6 without major improvement in these two areas.
