Set view as...
I am currently fleeing Autodesk Inventor, which has decided to screw over the maker community by revoking the free license they gave us for years.
I am trying to figure out how to do certain things in OnShape. I have, on the whole, been very happy with the tutorials, exercises, and videos I have found. But I am having some problems with importing my existing Inventor projects.
One thing that is very confusing is that when I import a drawing, the "top" or "front" seems to change from what I had originally designed. In Inventor, I could choose a view, and then say "Set current view as front" and it would reorient the notion of front and top as required to make it so. Sometimes I would have to select both front and top to change them. I have not been able to discover a similar mechanism in OnShape.
Is it possible to reorient the view? If so, how?
