3-D Shapes Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi All,

I have posted a graffle to demonstrate what I am trying accomplish. I would like to create some 3-D boxes but the built-in boxes for Omnigraffle (4 or 5) do not rotate to the direction I want. The rotate function only moves in the X and Y coordinates, I want to rotate backward into the back of the page.

Here is the link to a sample diagram that shows the 3-D boxes:

I had to create my sample using 3 quadrangles grouped together.

Does anyone have any easy suggestions?

Download the freeware Shape On You and use it to create the view you want. Insert the image into OmniGraffle - if you need to edit the shape, it utilises LinkBack (as does OmniGraffle) so double clicking the inserted shape will cause ShapeOnYou to re-open the image. Any changes you make will also occur back in the OmniGraffle document when you save the edits in ShapeOnYou.
