We have a 3D model. We cut it in plan and look down on it to get the floor plan. I should be able to just look up from the cutting plane to get a true RCP. It's the same thing! Just let us look up. Please.

No, it’s not the same thing. They call it a reflected ceiling plan because it’s what you would see if you were looking down into a mirror on the floor. If you were lying on your back on the floor looking up, it would be “mirror reversed” from an RCP, and would be very confusing to any one trying to understand it.

Ah yes. You’re absolutely right.

What I meant is that if we can already cut and project a regular floor plan it’s really the “same”, as in what the underlying graphics engine is capable of, to generate an RCP. This would save a lot of work setting up model and graphic overrides, which would still remain as an option. I’m advocating for a more automated approach.
