Save 3D as 2D Dialog, Conversion Options Section

Contains controls that are used to set conversion options.

View Sets the view that determines the orientation of the design plane upon which 3D elements are projected.
Preserve Z Range If on, 3D Z-range data is stored in the generated 2D elements. This data can then be used when converting the elements back to 3D at a later time.
Ignore View Rotation If on, the view rotation is ignored and the 3D file is saved as in a top view. This setting preserves the X-Y geometry coordinates and discards the Z information.
