Learn how to navigate in the 3D views within Vectorworks.
- [Instructor] Within the 3D environment,…navigation and wayfinding is critical.…Let's see how to navigate in the 3D views…within Vectorworks.…As we've seen before, we can pan, zoom in,…and flyover our scenes.…I'm using the key commands and mouse scroll wheel…and middle mouse button.…Now we can see that this is a 3D view.…So I'm going to go up to the pull-down…for the different views that we have.…This is the Current View.…I'm going to set this to Top/Plan view.…
So this is the view that we have…when we're drawing in two dimensions,…but when we go into a 3D world,…we have a few pre-set views that we can select.…So I'd go up to the pull-down menu…where we have it set to Top/Plan,…and then let's just take a look at what happens…when we click on Top.…Should be the same.…It actually is a bit different.…And then this dialog box shows up,…which tells us that there is a way…that we can change how the 3D view is going to look…when we move from the Top/Plan view…to any of the other pre-set 3D views.…
So let's go ahead and just go to the Settings…
