Navigating Views

Lineardraft views allow you to control how your model is displayed in a CAD viewport. How this works is slightly different between views, as described below.

Please note: View functions are applied to the current active view in your CAD application.

3D View

Step 1: Navigate to the ‘Views’ section on the Lineardraft toolbar

Step 2: Click on the ‘3D’ button

This will turn on all levels associated with the 3D view and turn off all 2D levels. Your view will display the smallest section of your model necessary to include all existing Lineardraft elements in it.

It will also bring up the ‘Select a Structure’ prompt at the bottom left of the screen.

Step 3 (optional): Select a structure by which to orientate your view

This allows you to set the orientation of your view, which will be rotated in order to display this structure from an isometric viewpoint, as seen in the image below. Until you use another function, you will be able to continue selecting structures to change your view orientation.
