Perspective Views

You can display a perspective view of models. A perspective view is the view normally seen by the eye. Parallel lines recede into the distance to a vanishing point. Parts, assemblies, and drawings that are displayed in your CAD application with perspective will be displayed without perspective when opened in the SolidWorks eDrawings Viewer.

Click Perspective or View, Perspective to display a perspective view of the model.
