Setting the viewing direction

You view three-dimensional drawings by setting the viewing direction. The viewing direction establishes the viewing position, the Cartesian coordinate corresponding to the viewpoint looking back at the origin point, the 0,0,0 coordinate. When you view a drawing from the default viewpoint (0,0,1), you see a plan view of the drawing.

On the View toolbar, you can view a three-dimensional drawing using any of the following methods:

  • Preset Viewpoints ()
  • Dynamic View Control ()
  • Plan View ()
  • You can change the viewing direction to look at the drawing from a different vantage point or to work on a three-dimensional model from a different orientation.
