ADT in 2000

Hi T-Bear

I would say yes, I use the ADT blocks a lot and I can open + view them in   2000. Now, I had a bit of a problem with 2004, I then download The ADT 2004 Object Enablers at Autodesk and now I can use these blocks in 2004 as well.

I can even Render them in 3D in 2004 but I am still trying to sort that out in 2000 but I would assume you would need the object enablers there as well.

If you go to Autodesk, - Object enablers, you can download Mechanical Desktop enablers as well, pretty cool stuff

Try this:
1. Create a new layout
2. Create a viewport
3. Type solprof at the command line
4. follow the prompts

This works fine if you are willing to process one view at a time (and wait forever, it seems!) but for multiple views, all in one shot, in my humble opinion, nothing beats Makeit2D from the EMT Survivors Kit.  You can pick any or all of the 6 orthographic and 4 isometric views, turn hidden lines off or on, and that's just for starters.  A great little suite, and I don't own stock (DAMN!)

I kind of figured there was such a thing out there, but if you don't have any money, solprof is there for you.

I'm grabbing that utility when (if) I get a job.

Not into too much 3D work yet,but Ive come across this command called SOLPROF.Can change your view from 3D to 2D,but I have feeling your just wanted to have a 2D drawing to work with not a 3D looking 2D.
