Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the ViewCube, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…I never use to use the ViewCube until I found out how awesome it is.…Now every autodesk application I use I cling to that cube.…Navisworks has some pretty cool functionality built into the…ViewCube that we are going to to take a look at.…We're going to use the view cube in three different ways.…One is, we're going to take a look at…our model from a plan isometric and front view.…Then we're going to select an item and use…the ViewCube to orient ourselves to that selected item.…Last but not least we're going to use the ViewCube in…conjunction with the selection tree to zoom in on an object.…
So,to get started open the file NavisworksEssential.nwd,…or your own Navisworks file and follow along.…On the Quick Access tool bar I'm going to click the Open button.…I'm going to browse to where I keep my…files, I'm going to go to the Navisworks folder.…I'm going to make sure my files of type is set for Navisworks.nwd.…Select the NavisworksEssential.nwd and open it up.…The first thing I'd like to do is take a look at the ViewCube itself.…
