• Problem with persective

    If I am in perspective mode, and I try to change a part from hide to show, the view jumps to a slightly different location. It does this if the view is static or changing. It doesn't do this when not in perspective mo...

  • How to make the camera rotate around the model 360 degrees.

    I have an assembly. I created a new camera. I want that particular view to rotate around the camera ( just as the animation wizard allows ). I cannot use the animation wizard because it rotates along on a chosen axis....
