VIEWPROJ command

Generates additional projected views from an existing drawing view previously created by the VIEWBASE command (short for "view projection").

BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM


  • This command operates only in Paper Space.
  • The DRAWINGVIEWFLAGS system variable allows to enable parallel creation or updating of drawing views. This can reduce view processing time, but uses more resources.


Select the view from which to generate new projected views and select the position of the new projected views.

Depending on where you move the cursor, you can place up to five orthogonal and four isometric views. The views are aligned automatically. Press Ctrl key to toggle alignment on and off to place the view anywhere on the sheet.

Options within the command

Isometric geometry
Sets the style for isometric views.
2D views
Draws isometric views as 2D projections of the 3D geometry and turns on the BM_Hidden layer so that hidden lines are shown as dashed lines.
3D views
Draws isometric views as 3D geometry and sets the visual style of the viewport.
