Hi,
In ZWCAD+2014 SP1 does not supporting DVIEW command. As it was working in ZWCAD 2012 Version.
Any alternate command which can help me to view drawing on specific angle in layout.

VERNUM = "2014.04.27(21135)"

Thanks

I use "orbit" "Pan" and "zoom" command to see not typical 3D View.
ZWCAD+ has new engine, maybe DVIEW command will be next time.

Hi,
Surender - I have the same requests from customers.
And also I personally miss DVIEW.
I belive ZWSOFT team will soon add all of the missed features to new ZWCAD+

Martin_S, how did you do that thing, with "transparency for layer"?
transparency is only a command for images, not for layers, as far as I know.

hi all, we plan to support DVIEW in the next version.

As a temporary solution, I suggest you to use the perspective view for current version. Run ORBIT command, then you can find the perspective option in the right-click menu, you can also adjust the distance or swivel camera.

dear Jenny, your solution with ORBIT does not help me. I need to go in or out of a building, I need to choose certain points (target and camera positions). I cannot do this with ZWCAD+2015. It is a shame, as this is important for an architect, for an interior designer, etc.. I decided to use SketchUp, which does it wonderful and costs... nothing (in the old versions 7 and 8).

@horia

In Poland I have special Forum for ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE

Here is very old proposal of new function for Layers - Transparency, but not the same like in Autodesk.
Gradient Transparency from 0% to 100%, nontransparency 0%. transparency 100%.

ZWCAD could be more original , layer could be displayed f.e. like semitransparency object 44%,50% or 57%

here my Polish Topic: https://forum.cad.info.pl/topic/815-co-warto-udoskonalić-w-zwcad-architecture/?p=6468

dear Martin, that sounds like a great idea. Yes, transparency would be very useful. But you expect this from zwCAD? Come on! except cheap and autocad-like, it is still since so many years a software always under developement, with a lot of bugs. It is better than in 2007, but still quite unpolished. They would need a team that works in german style (much more organised).

hi all,
Good news, you could have DVIEW before ZWCAD 2017 is release. An individual ZRX program of this feature is provided, which could run on ZWCAD+ 2015 SP3, see this post http://www.zwsoft.com/zwcad_forum/thread-4340-1-1.html

hi horia, you could set precise position for the camera or target from the properties palettes, is that helpful for you?
