Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating camera views, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…Now, as we start drawing in SketchUp, there are often times…when we'll need to draw things exactly perpendicular to a view.…And if we want to do that, we can use what are called standard views.…now by default, SketchUp gives you a very nice perspective view, which actually…gives you a kind of realistic…3D perspective, but sometimes that doesn't work.…So, we can go into different types of standard views.…So, if we go into Camera,…let's go into Standard Views, and we can create different views.…So, we can create a top or we can create a front view, however we want.…
So we can actually see this exactly parallel to the axis of the scene.…Now this view is actually not quite…an exact front projections, because it's not orthographic.…So if we want to, we can go into Camera,…and we change our projection from perspective to parallel projection.…If I click on Parallel Projection, notice how everything flattens…out an I get a very, square view of the scene.…An this is great if you're drawing things…that need to be perpendicular to each other.…
