Changes the elevation (as measured from the x,y-plane in the z direction) and thickness (as measured from the elevation) of selected entities.
Accessing the Command
command bar: elev
menu bar: Settings | Elevation
ribbon: Settings | Elevation
toolbar: Settings |
Prompts you in the command bar:
New current elevation <0.0000>: (Enter a new value, or press Enter to keep the current value)
New current thickness <0.0000>: (Enter a new value, or press Enter to keep the current value)
New current elevation
Specifies the elevation above or below the x,y-plane; enter a negative value for a negative elevation. The elevation is reported on the status bar as the z coordinate.
New current thickness
Specifies the thickness: the thickness begins at the elevation; enter negative values for thicknesses that are drawn downwards (negative z direction).
The thickness is the extrusion distance (in the z direction) of non-3D entities, such as points, lines, polylines, arcs and circles. When thickness is not 0:
Flatten - Flattens 2D and 3D entities: projects the entities onto the XY-plane of the current view.
Change - changes the elevation and thickness of entities through the command bar.
Properties - changes the elevation (z coordinate) and elevation through a palette.
Settings - sets the default elevation and thickness through the 3D section of the Settings dialog box.
