How to make floor plans?
show user profile  cafebird
I am trying to make floor plans from my 3ds max model, but I can't figure out how to make it look right. I want it to be an orthographic line drawing, where if you had an aerial view the furniture, walls, etc. would be outlined only, no shading. I already tried changing the render preset to mental.ray.hidden.line.contours, but it only showed some of the lines, not all.

Does anyone have any idea on how to make it work? I know I can put it into autocad, but I already spent so much time making the furniture...

How do I get a picture onto the thread? I tried copy/paste already, and there's no upload option?
