Learn how to change between 2D and 3D views of the PCB board design and how to navigate in the 3D view.
- [Instructor] While running through our PCB designs…in SOLIDWORKS PCB,…we can also change some viewing options.…So if I just go to my View tab here,…and over on the right-hand side,…we briefly took a look at this earlier,…but I have a few view options here,…and I can switch easily between a 2D view…and a 3D view.…And you can use this to fit your own needs and preferences,…usually jumping back and forth a few times…just to take a look at your final product.…
So here I'm currently in the 2D view…of my PCB board layout here.…If I click the drop-down here,…I can switch to 2D…and switch to 3D.…So in this case,…maybe I wanna switch to 3D,…take a look at what my actual board…may look like in a 3D view.…And here I start to get an idea of…what my finished board product might look like.…And my navigation tools are fairly similar here…as in my 2D view.…
One other navigation command that might be useful for me…is to rotate this board.…So I can do that,…I can just hold down the Shift key…and I get this kind of navigation orb popping up here,…
