I have a drawing of a simple L-bracket. I am trying to flip the isometric so I can get the second view...how do I flip the isometric of a part when detailing?
1. The isometric view is based on what is set as your front/top/right views of the part.
2. You can redefine what is set for any view. Just hit the spacebar and bring up this dialogue box:
The red square is Update Standard Views. You can take the current view and make it any of the six orthoganal views, for instance.
3. You can rotate your model to any orientation you want and then save that as a view. I do this all the time and call them Canted-1, etc.
4. Click on the View Selector icon and you can pick any of the faces of that funky cube and the view will be changed to be normal to that face. If you like one of those and want to use it then you can save and name that view (see #3).
5. Go to the SWX Help and search for View Orientation to get more details on how many options you have.
I already know how to do this, I want to flip the isometric without changing standard views

Change the sketch plane of the feature that made this.
Position the part as in the desired orientation and save this as a new view:
I frequently insert a Front, Left, etc view, make a projected view from it to get the Isometric view I want, then delete the parent view. There are other options described at https://forum.solidworks.com/community/faqs/blog/2018/02/22/how-can-i-rotate-a-drawing-view
Insert the second Model View and use 3D Drawing View to rotate 3D in 2D space. Accept when you get the desired 2nd Iso View.
This macro creates 8 different named ISO views in the model. You can then pick from them in the drawing.
