Join Ellery Connell for an in-depth discussion in this video Grids and the workplane, part of Learning MODO 601.
In this video, we'll be looking at the grid system inside of Modo, and also a …very special grid known as the Workplane. So, in any view, you can see that there …is a grid in the background. Now, as I zoom out, you'll see the grid …snap and change scale. So as the grid spaces get smaller, it …will be eventually replaced by a larger grid that takes up the same overlying space. …Conversely, by zooming, as the grid spaces get larger, they will be replaced …by smaller grids that are inside of the existing grids.…
In order to keep tabs on how large these grid spaces actually are, there is a …small readout in the bottom right corner of any window that shows the scale of the …grid pattern. So, you can see now that this reads at 200mm. …So zooming in farther, once the grid snaps to a smaller size, you can see …changes to 100 millimeters and 50 and 20. If I zoom farther out, you can see it …goes to one meter, two meters, five meters, 10 meters, and so on and so forth.…
So, this will allow you to keep a good idea of how large your scene is. …
