Want to set entire drawing to have Z elevation = 0

Hi,

Does anyone know how I can make all objects in a drawing have a Z dimension of zero.

Thanks,
Scotty

RE: Want to set entire drawing to have Z elevation = 0

If you search most any forum (e.g. AutoDesk or cadalog.com) you'll find this topic thousands of times - must be an epidemic problem.

'Change' command-works on some items but not lines with differing Z values

Express Tools -'Flatten'-About the best I suppose

'Flatten.lsp' freeware, many floating around out there-variable success rate

From the command line - "move" (select objcts), From: 0,0,0 To: 0,0,1e99; then Move: previous From: 0,0,0 To: 0,0,-1e99. Works on simple objects but not nested blockks, etc.

HTH,
Carl

Thanks for the reply Carl,

I am running 2002LT (should have mentioned it before) so I cannot run a LISP routine.

Most of the objects do have differing Z values, so I have been using DDMODIFY on them.

I have just tried the MOVE 0,0,1e99 thing and it works a treat!

Thankyou.
S
