Model View Orientation

Question asked by John Wayman on Jan 17, 2017
Latest reply on Jan 17, 2017 by John Wayman


I have inherited a large assembly model that has been created with the default datum planes in the wrong orientation. Thus, when I click on the little pointer icon for a view normal to a surface, it all spins into a long and thin view instead of a short and fat one.

I really don't want to change the default datums' orientation at this stage.

Is there an easy way to create views of a model in a particular orientation?

I want to click on a face, make the view normal to that face, then rotate the view 90 degrees, so what was vertical becomes horizontal. I don't want any other movement of the model to occur. Then I want to save the new view so I can recall it as and when I want to.

I expect I'm missing something obvious, but I can't figure out how to do it.
