To project an object onto a drawing plane

1 Select an object.

2 Click Arrange > Transformations > Project.

3 In the Transformations docker, choose Project from the list box.

4 Enable one of the following options:

• Top — projects the object onto the top plane

• Front — projects the object onto the front plane

• Right — projects the object onto the right plane

5 To specify on origin point on the drawing around which to project the selected object, do one of the following:

• Enable the first option under the Origin area, and type coordinates in the X and Y boxes.

• Enable the first option under the Origin area, click the Specify origin-point button © next to the X and Y boxes, and click a point on the drawing.

• Enable the second option under the Origin area, and enable the point relative to the selected object's bounding box.

6 If you want to leave the original object unchanged and apply the transformation to a copy, type 1 in the Copies box.

7 Click Apply.

Applying a contour to a projected object may not produce the desired results. It is recommended that you apply a contour to the object in its unprojected state and then project the object. Contour groups can be unlinked by clicking Arrange > Break contour group apart.
