3D Hotspot but in Project{2} view

Hi,

 

With the help of kind people in this great community, I have created an object with the ability to stretch its length in 3D using a 3D HOTSPOT command in the 3D Script. This is a simple BLOCK with a Y axis variable DEPTH:

In 3D window it gives me a nice stretchy 3D Hotspot:

I would now like to be able to to stretch its length when viewing the same object in the 2D floor plan project{2} 3D view:

I tried HOTSPOT2 but it only follows the X or Y axis, but the project{2} 3D view is at 45 degrees, so the hotspot moves away from the DEPTH:

Is there a way to create a 2D hotspot that follows the corner, the same as in the 3D window?

 

Many thanks, Matt

Use trig to set your hotspots positions then use the hotspot display parameter to show the actual size.

Hi @GDL Enthusiast ,

 

If you have a block without rotation in 3D, shouldn't your projection be a square in 2D ? If so, your projection statement should be PROJECT2 3, 270, 2
