    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.

    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?

    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
    View->Views->Normal->Active UCS
    and then Zoom_Window but that’s like four or five mouse clicks/manipluations

    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.

    Could you just open another window for that view and work back and forth between windows?

    Hey Nick,

    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.

    That is supposed to be a Ctrl+8 as in Control. It looks weird the way I typed it before.

    Thanks Mike, That’s what I came up with. It’s just a little cumbersome compared to say “Named Views” in AutoCad

    What RAF was suggesting comes in handy at times too.This was 2 new windows/tiled vertically.
