3D Plane

Post by JoeH » Mon Nov 08, 2010 9:45 am

I am looking to draw a shaded 3D plane (in MS2010), but I need the shading to stay on screen as an object (not dissappear with a regen like the 'shade' command). Ideally it would work like the 'plane' command but with the ability to select 3D points.

Any ideas?

Hi, you can use the 3dface command to draw the plane by snapping to 3 or 4 points, then when you use the render command to view the drawing it will appear solid.
