Rendered isometric views


New member
I would like to add a rendered isometric view instead of a hidden line isometric view to my standard machine drawing. Does anyone know how to do this. Thanks in advance.

You need to orient your model in the view in which you want and Save As > TIFF.

Convert this to a bitmap.

Back in the drawing, Insert > Object > browse for the bitmap and select.

Incidentally, I heard that Wildfire 3.0 will finally have the option for a drawing view with a rendered display.
