Control camera via API

Dmitry_17Dmitry_17 Member, Developers Posts: 2
Hi Team!

Is it possible to control camera (set to named views, fit all model to viewport, etc.) using any kind of API?

    There are some keyboard shortcuts that may be of some use to you.

    Ctrl/Cmd + 1/2/3/4/5/6/7 does all your different views such as top, front, right, isometric/pictorial.

    You can also use arrow keys to spin the model around.

    We currently support querying the camera properties with the client messaging requestCameraProperties API. The named views can be obtained via the Get Named Views REST API. We don't support modifying the camera properties via either APIs.
