Standard views

The initial view of the model depends on its dimensions. Typically, vertically planar models are displayed in elevation and other models are displayed in plan.

The following commands (and their associated accelerator keys) are available from the Graphics > Orientation > Standard views menu to provide standard views of the image. The commands are also available from the Orientation toolbar.

  • Plan (P)
  • X elevation (X)
  • Y elevation (Y)
  • Isometric (I)
  • Skew view (K). This is a perspective projection.
  • Ground view (G). This is a perspective projection.
  • Reverse plan (Alt+P)
  • Reverse X elevation (Alt+X)
  • Reverse Y elevation (Alt+Y)

In all cases a scale to fit is also carried out.
