    Why does the Flat Pattern drawing view rotate and flip over

    Mark Greenwell



      I have an IFC file created in X-Steel that I have converted to a sheet metal part for unfolding.


      When I see the Part unfolded in the Part environment I go CTL 8 to look at it straight on, then go create drawing and select the flat pattern.


      Why now does the view rotate 90 deg to the way it shown in the Part environment?

      Sometimes on other things

      I have noticed that as well as rotating it also flips over
