    Have you tried Express Tools Flatten?

    It depends on what kind of 2-D drawing you want from 3-D.

    If you want a TOP-FRONT-RIGHT VIEW style drawing with dimensions and to plot exactly look like 2-D drawing, then you might want to try SOLVIEW and SOLDRAW command. I found those commands were not easy to understand but it worked.

    For the other purpose, to draw an exploded view (South-West View), which I do a lot in my work place, try SOLPROF.

    1) First Rotate3D your solid model. 45 degree for Y-axis and then 35.5 degree in X-axis for SW view (normal isometric drawing).

    2) Goto Layout1(PaperSpace) then choose MODEL SPACE.

    3) Type SOLPROF in command promt. Then answer Y-Y-Y for options.

    4) You will have two new layers, one for 2-D flattened and one for hidden line. But these drawings are overlapped with the original solid model to make it hard to see. Turn off solid layer for now and move 2-D part to somewhere else. You got 2-D isometric view of your solid model.

    Hope it helps you even a little bit.

    Another comment: SOLPROF transforms a circle into an ellipse but FLATTEN transforms it into a polyline, sometimes into many broken polylines. It means a 2-D made form SOLPROF can be scaled indefinetely but one from FLATTEN cannot.

    Good luck.
