Join Justin Flett for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating your first view, part of Learning SOLIDWORKS Composer.
- [Instructor] One of the most important aspects…of SOLIDWORKS Composer is generating views.…These are the snapshots we'll be using…to help generate our technical documentation.…Now, to generate a view,…I'll just want to jump into my Views tab.…And here, I have a number of icons I can take a look at,…and the first one here kind of looks like a camera…with the flash going off.…And I can just click on that button to create my first view.…
Alternatively, Control + E is the hotkey…to generate this view.…As soon as I click that button,…you can see my first view coming in here.…And they're automatically named view one,…view two, view three, and so on.…But most likely, I'll want to rename this view,…give it a bit more of a description.…So I can just right-click and navigate to Rename View,…and maybe I'll call this My first view.…
Similarly, maybe I will…zoom in slightly to my project here…and again just create another view.…And maybe I'll rename this…to, say,…Zoomed in View.…Lastly, maybe I'll just do this once more.…Zoom out slightly, and create a third view.…
