I'm trying to do a normal isometric view but this is the final result : (see the immage below)

what's wrong? On the left there is the wrong view and on the right the original one.
Maybe a problem with the groups?

I'm new here, so I hope to have write on the right forum!
Thanks a lot :)

Is that done in Autocad?

There's sometimes a tendency of CAD files opened in CS to "explode". It's because of the "layered" nature of the plotted coordinates in the CAD file.

I haven't used Autocad for a long while now and in tandem with CS 4 or a higher version, but try exporting the file as an object (if possible) and import into CS. Or see if you can group all the plots into a single group (or the Autcad equivalent of "Flatten"), save and import into CS.

I might be wrong... but might as well rotate it into the view you need in Autocad and export/import it into CS for whatever editing you plan to do with it.

If your trying to create an aerial perspective view, take a full screen grab of your plan view, paste into your CS document and try the perspective transform control. I used to do this when I create architectural renders from CAD files. Also try and see if the 3d rotate will work on it.

You could try other CAD to CS tips apart from what I suggested here.... http://www.cadtutor.net/tutorials/autocad/autocad-to-photoshop.php .

Hang on... others may have a suggestion for you.....

I think in the above tutorial I posted, exporting the file as an EPS to import into CS might do the trick.....

I'm moving your thread to the General Photoshop Board.
Hm, I've done it with ArchiCAD, but i could try to export it in EPS.. It's first time I've this problem. :frown:

OK... ArchiCad....

Not that I've used it and I may be wrong but what I know is you have to export a 3dModel into Artlantis (http://www.artlantis.com/en/plugins/archicad) .

In Artlantis, create a rendering and saved as a a multi-layered raster image Photoshop file.

If you don't have or don't use Artlantis, try exporting as EPS .

Or save as a pdf . Check this discussion out .... http://forums.cgarchitect.com/19484-archicad-photoshop.html
