Rotate 3D

N/A

Hi all,
I want to work on a dxf file that is draw on standard XZ axis: is a section on a
3D car model... is it possible to rotate it to view it in the correct way?
Thanks a lot

I am just new to Solid edge free 2d and I hope someone will correct me if I am wrong
but I don't think you can do this. Free 2d can't work in 3d... you would have to
have a dxf or dwg of the view already rotated in xy in 2d format.

Marco,
Solid Edge 2D Drafting is 2D only, however when you open a DXF or DWG file
with 3D content, you can set the orientation to project the geometry onto.
When you click on a DXF file in the FileOpen dialog, click on the Options
button at the bottom of the dialog. This will run the 'AutoCAD to Solid Edge
translation Wizard'. On the first page of the wizard is a combo box to set
orientation. See the attached image. Finish looking through the options. You
will be prompted to save your custom configuration for translation.
