Question

My Plant 3D model is not aligned to WCS, how do I create an Ortho view that is aligned to my model?

 

Answer

The OrthoCube is fixed in its alignment to WCS. So the solution is to realign your model to WCS. You can do this quite easily by creating a new drawing and using the XREF command to reference in your model to the new drawing. When you attach your model, specify a rotation angle to align it with the WCS in the new drawing. You can then create an Ortho view that is aligned to your model from the new drawing.
