When opening .dxf files in Illustrator - how do you change which camera your looking thru? Right now, whenever I open a .dxf, it shows the scene from the 'top' camera... How do I change to perspective camera?
You can't, because it doesn't exist. DXF per definition is merely an exchange format only for lines and curves, but no persistent views. For AI to render a 3D presentation of it, it would have to have a full interpreter that reconstructs 3D views. Maybe some plug-in for AI exists that handles 3D DXF in teh way you expect, but I'm not aware of it. If you really need 3D views, have the CAD oeprator generate A PDF or generate a 2D drawing from the current view. Alternatively, get a CAD viewer or a 3D program and render your own 3D views.
Bummer. Thank you for the great tips though.
