confused Printing Walls from side

Hi,

I have planned my building and now I would like to calculate cables & electricity and document it.

For that it would be extremely helpful if there was a way to have a print/view of every wall from the side. I could't find anything...have I missed it? Do you have an idea for me, how to accomplish something like that?

Printing the 3D View is not really an option as it would not be to scale.

Re: Printing Walls from side

Sorry, there's no side views in Sweet Home 3D.
A workaround could be to export (a part of) your home to OBJ format, then reimport it as a piece of furniture and rotate it at the second step of the Furniture import wizard.
To get a nicer image of that kind of side view, you could then choose a larger icon size in preferences.

Re: Printing Walls from side

Thanks for your answer (even though I hoped it would be my fault).

I really wonder that this is a feature that I seem to be the only one interested in. It should not be to hard to implement I'd guess.
Oh well, I guess I have to tinker then :)

Thanks for your extremely helpful software as well :)

Oh, you are not alone in wishing for a simple way to create a lateral view. The question does come up from time to time, also in the feature requests (SF ticket 484 with links to a couple of similar, closed ones).

In addition to what Puybaret suggests, you may want to look at threads 5416 and 5498 to see couple of approaches.

One way is to create a side photo as in Akalvin's house in 5416#23778. Moving the virtual visitor far away (say 50000 cm) and setting the field of view to minimum (2°) before you create the photo, will generate a relatively undistorted side view. Easy with a facade, but will also work with inner walls if you remove (delete) obstructing walls and furniture for the shot.

The below test was created by exporting the facade as obj, importing, turning it, shrinking height, and adding dimension lines in SH3D before editing the SVG export with Inkscape. I quite like this way, as the exported SVG will have one px equal one cm when adding/editing objects, so it is fairly easy to edit with high accuracy. Again, not perfect, but maybe good enough for documentation (the wall background would be nicer now with the new possiblity of increasing icon size).

ok

See closed SF feature request ticket 676 for files used in this example:
