You can manipulate objects within views in the following ways:
If your mouse has a scroll wheel, you can use it to change the size of the object in a particular view. Changing the size of the object in one view does not affect the size of the object in other views.
To change the size of an object, position your cursor anywhere in the view, and then:
To zoom in on a particular region of an object:
After you have zoomed in or out on an object in a view, you can return the object to its original size, which is designed to fit nicely into the view window. To do this:
To move the object in a particular view:
You can rotate the object in the Perspective view so that you can view it from different angles. You can rotate the object to the left or right, to the top or bottom, or anywhere in between.
To rotate an object:
To get a better perspective on your design, you can display an object as a wireframe outline. To do this:
If you right-click in the view again, you'll see a checkmark next to the Wireframe command. To return to the normal object, simply right-click in the view window and choose Wireframe again to uncheck the command.
It may be helpful at times to spread out the components in an assembly so that you can view each one separately. In SketchList 3D, this is called exploding the assembly. Exploding the assembly can be particularly useful if you can't locate a particular component.
You can only explode assemblies when you are at the Assembly level of your design.
To explode an assembly:
The pieces of the assembly spread apart from each other. To return to the normal view, simply right-click in the view window and choose Explode again to uncheck it.
