Rotating the view in real time

progeCAD allows you to rotate the view of a drawing in real time. This allows you to view your model from any angle while in model space. You cannot rotate the view while in paper space.

If desired, you can continue the view rotation after you release your mouse. Choose Tools > Options to enable continuous motion on the Display tab.

To rotate the view in real time

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose View > Real-Time Motion > Real-Time Sphere.
    • On the View toolbar, click the Real-Time Sphere tool ().
    • Type rtrot and then press Enter.
    • Press and hold Ctrl.
  2. Click and drag the left mouse button. The view rotates according to the movement of your mouse.
  3. To stop rotating, release the mouse button.
  4. If the view continues to rotate, press Enter or right-click the drawing when finished.

NOTES You can use the Real-Time X, Real-Time Y, and Real-Time Z commands to lock the rotation in the corresponding axis. You can also press Ctrl and use the right mouse button to rotate the view about the z-axis.

If you are working with a large drawing file, it may be helpful to set the RTSKIPCOUNT system variable to a higher number to reduce the number of entities that display. For example, if the value is set to 10, only the 10th entity will display when panning and rotating in real-time.
