When should ArtiosCAD 3D > Tools > Convert to 2D be used?
While in ArtiosCAD 3D, this tool is best used for a single carton to produce a simple ARD file in cases, when said ARD does not exist. So if just the A3D file exists or the user wishes to recover a simple 2D design, this tool can be used.
Note that the resulting 2D is a basic structure. Original bridges, nicks and parametrics are lost. A high resolution graphic will be resampled to a low resolution graphic.
The bottom line is that the user should not expect a production 2D file with this tool. It is a recovery tool.
