    Default perspective view

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    hi

    can anyone help me figure out how to set up a perspective view? i've created the basic 3d model and am having difficulty getting the camera in the correct position.

    I'm using 2004 version.

    thanks

    The best method is to use the DVIEW command. See this tutorial for details. I don't quite understand why but this command is now undocumented and not available from any menu or toolbar. I assume that Autodesk considers that the perspective mode of 3D Orbit is all that anyone could need - far from it.
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    An altrnative I teach is the command 3DO then right-click, choose perspective and adjust as needed. Bear in mind zoom and pan will not work in this projection,although right-clicking again and using pan/zoom etc within that will work. Once you have got a nice view split the screen into 2 viewports and then change one back to parallel. Also right clicking you can save the view.
