Switching from Perspective Mode to Isometric Mode

Models can be projected in one of the following modes:

Perspective Mode: This mode adds depth to the rendering of your assembly by projecting the assembly from a single vanishing point, but the geometrical relationships between some parts of your assembly may be distorted. For example, parallel lines may not appear to be parallel.

Isometric Mode: This mode gives a geometrically accurate rendering (that is, parallel lines appear parallel), but does not display any depth.

 

To display your assembly in Perspective mode, do any of the following:

• 

With the Select pointer ( ), right-click on an empty area of the CAD Workspace, and then select Perspective.

• 

Press Toggle Perspective ( ).

 

To display your assembly in Isometric mode, do any of the following:

• 

With the Select pointer ( ), right-click on an empty area of the CAD Workspace, and then select Isometric.

• 

Press Toggle Perspective ( ).
