VBA Macro: Isometric View & Save

I wrote this macro to spite a coworker who complained that whenever he opened my part files he had to zoom out, as I had saved it while looking at the feature I was last working on.


With an Open Part/Assembly this macro:

1. Stores the current Model View

2. Disables graphics for quicker transitions

3. Switches to Isometric View

4. Re-enables graphics

5. Saves the file

6. Switches back to the original model view


The idea behind this macro is that the user can always save their part/assembly in an isometric view without interrupting their workflow.

What I like about this macro is that it adds no perceptible time to the part saving process, the transitions are so fast they can't be noticed.

I've since swapped my Ctrl+S bind to run this macro.
