Q - question

Polyface mesh cannot be used for FLATSHOT command.

A - answer When trying to project a polyface mesh (PFACE) with the FLATSHOT command, AutoCAD displays the error "There are no solids or surfaces that can be projected".

Projecting of 2D views of a 3D model using the FLATSHOT command can be applied only on 3D solids, surfaces and 3D meshes. Objects of the type "polyface mesh" (pface) can be easily converted to 3D meshes. Use e.g. the command MESHSMOOTH to get a 3D mesh. Then apply FLATSHOT on it.
