Reset front/ISO view in the model
david_salonia Member Posts: 4 EDU
Is there a way to reset the front and/or ISO view for the model? Inventor has this feature
So here is how I have gotten around this for kids who are putting in poor front views into their drawing.
On the part studio tab place the object in the front position facing you as desired.
Below the navigation cube where is the dropdown for iso, dim,.... you can click on name view. Give this a title such as "True Front"
Then when you go to place your view into a drawing KIds can select this view. It is below the insert view in the "View orientation" dropdown menu.
Hope this helps.
Model direction is a major issue and very important. There should not have to be get arounds, work arounds. Inventor allows this and this is Very Important. Onshape needs to add this programming feature asap!
Named views are a poor workaround for a model with non standard orientation. It happens, and sometimes it's not practical to reorientate the model. Named views kick the user out of a command when selected.
It would be far more helpful to be able to manually orientate the model to (for example) where I'd like the 'Front' view to be then reorientate the standard views so that becomes the new Front. It wouldn't change the orientation of planes or anything else in the model.
