Feature Request - 3D View

Postby DBrunermer » Fri Apr 11, 2014 6:36 am

I know the 3D View tool is not meant to be an end-all be-all modeler. But it would be really great if there were two other configuration switches:
1) Transparent On or Off. By that I mean, make the board either see thru (as it is now) or opaque top and bottom so you only see one side at a time
2) Perspective or Orthographic Projection. Right now it only does perspective. Orthographic would give a nice flat image.

I ask for these features because of downstream modeling. The 3D view is great for making a model of my boards in SolidWorks. I can put the bitmap in a sketch plane, and I can literally place my parts and go thru a virtual build and hand my mechanical designers some really good looking models for rendering. If the bitmap weren't perspective skewed, it would look perfect.

Thanks for your consideration. Dan Brunermer
