Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating your model with the Orbit tool, part of Navisworks 2017 Essential Training.
…The orbit tool in nano sorts is quite common.…It's actually one of my favorites.…As opposed to the walk tool the orbit tool is there for you…to rotate your entire model or to more easily zoom in and zoom out.…Navis Works can be a tad quirky when it comes to orbiting…but this is going to be one function you want to master.…So to get started lets open the file Navis Works essential dot nwd or of…course you can use your own model if you want to orbit and follow along.…I'm going to click the Open button.…I'm going to go to where I have all my models stored.…I'm going to go to my NavisWorks folder and make…sure my files of type is set for NavisWorks.nwd.…
Click on NavisWorks Essential, and I'm going to open it up.…Generally by default, the Orbit button is your default.…If it's not, go ahead and click the orbit button anyway.…Notice that you have like a little recycle icon.…To orbit around a model simply hold down your pick button.…And move it in the direction you'd like to orbit.…You can move it up or down, left or right.…
