Side view plug-in

Here's the Side view plug-in which displays the edited home from one of its side using a parallel projection. Once this plug-in is installed, you may select the additional Tools > Display side view menu item (en français, le menu Outils > Afficher vue de côté) to view the side of your home in a separated dialog box. The viewed side will depend on the current body angle used in the 3D view, to let you choose an angle different from the classical 0°, 90°, 180° or 270° values.
Use the modification dialog box of the visual visitor to precisely adjust the body angle value.

While this dialog box is opened, you may still change the point of view in the plan or the 3D view to adjust the side view image, or edit your home and simultaneously view the changes in this dialog box.
You may also resize it and save the displayed image in a PNG file at the size of your choice. Finally, you may select the object under the cursor at the place where you'll right click (or toggle its selection if the Shift key is pressed).

The width of the displayed space depends on the total size of the visible items in your home, and as shown in the previous image, you may view some kind of cutting plane depending on the place of the point of view. Maybe, it will be possible to zoom in a future version.

Hope this plug-in will satisfy most needs regarding this long awaited feature smile
