» Topic: Manipulating the View
- August 16, 2013 at 2:02 pm #14834
I have a situation where I would like to look down on an image and zoom in to see more detail and have the X-axis pointing up and the Y pointing to the Left. essentially a top view with rotated 90 degrees around the Z- axis is this possible.August 16, 2013 at 2:50 pm #14852
Have you tried going to views and selected one and then to zoom –That should probably work. Or am I not understanding your question? Plus what version of Bobcad are you using?August 16, 2013 at 3:02 pm #14853
I have BobCad-Cam V25 Pro and BobArt. basically I have part of the image at about 45 degrees to the x Axis and would like to view it across the wide dimension of the screen. What I’d really like is to have the capability to name a zoomed view and jump to it at need.
I can do what I need by creating a new UCS and using
and then Zoom_Window but that’s like four or five mouse clicks/manipluationsAugust 16, 2013 at 3:23 pm #14854
I hear what you are saying – You want 1 click named view like in some other cad programs. I don’t think Bobcad has that yet. It would be nice. Maybe someone will have an answer for this.August 16, 2013 at 3:30 pm #14855
Could you just open another window for that view and work back and forth between windows?August 16, 2013 at 4:27 pm #14856
What you can try is create that new UCS and then Click Cntl+8 on your Keyboard. This will bring up the View Normal tab. In your Data Entry box you will see a box that shows “Active UCS”
When you click that it will put your screen in a top view for the UCS you created so you must make sure your X,Y, and Z are setup pointing in the correct direction.
Let me know if that all makes sense.August 16, 2013 at 4:29 pm #14857
That is supposed to be a Ctrl+8 as in Control. It looks weird the way I typed it before.August 16, 2013 at 7:25 pm #14859
Thanks Mike, That’s what I came up with. It’s just a little cumbersome compared to say “Named Views” in AutoCadAugust 17, 2013 at 12:33 am #14860
