Converting 3D to 2D

When you have 3D solids and regions drawings you can flat them to 2D views by using the command FLATSHOT. It will create 2D representations of the current view that you have on your screen at execution of the command. The new 2D entities will be generated as a block projected onto the XY plane. You can always modify the block later since it is comprised of 2D geometry.
That is very helpful, especially when you are working with 3D or dxf files. I know a lot of manufacturers have their online catalog cut drawings in 3D format. So that would save you some time and trouble.
