Where on earth is the small cube?

LeeBeeLeeBee Member Posts: 7

I posted yesterday about drawing views & was pointed towards the help page with the different options of shaded, translucent etc. This help page talks about a small cube - now I've looked at some of the training videos & they have a small cube below the view cube which I do not have. Where do I turn this on? Having all sorts of trouble sketching & hoping the options found within the small cube will make things easier.

    The small cube is available to you when using part studios and assemblies, but not drawings.   Are you looking for it in a part studio and not seeing it there?

    Thanks Jon,

    Not really up on the terminology that you guys use but I'm drawing my part. I've drawn a 2.5mm hole then tried to linear pattern it up and across but only certain ones show - wanted to change the view to see if it helps but can't find it. Have attached a picture as an example.

    Thankyou - schoolboy error on my part I'm afraid as I was using Edge. Now tried in Chrome and everything is working as it should do!

    Thanks for the assistance  B)
