    Problem Generating Isometric Thumbnails

    Sam-A9
      I can use the Java API and VueBean to generate thumbnails for various files (doc, dwg, CATPart), but the thumbnail always appears to be from a head-on (or top-down) perspective. For 2D files this is fine, but for 3D files like CATParts, I’m attempting to get an isometric view of the file. Using Web Services, this is accomplished by using the setCamera method, but I can’t find any equivalent methods in the API. Does the API support rotating the 3D object before exporting a thumbnail, or is this a web-services-only feature?
