Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating using the navigation tools, part of Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor.
Next, we'll look at the navigation tools themselves.…Just below the view cube you have a series of commands that will pan, zoom, and orbit…the model that you're working on.…The first one in the list is the Full Navigation Wheel.…We'll come back to that in a second after we go through a couple of these commands, the Pan command.…Panning is simply like grabbing the model and moving it around on the screen.…A simple left-click and drag will allow you to move the model from side to side on the screen.…This is typically used in conjunction with a Zoom function so that you can find exactly…the right position for viewing your model based on the work you're doing.…
Next, we have the Zoom command.…This command on the toolbar is actually a split button.…You'll notice it has a top half with an icon and the bottom half that has an arrow.…Based on where you are in your design process, that button may be different.…If you've never used the button before, it'll have whatever the default action was.…If you've used the command, it will use your last known command.…
