View Toolbar

The standard orthogonal views on the SOLIDWORKS® Standard Views toolbar are equivalent to AutoCAD® software's views. Rather than the compass-oriented isometric views, SOLIDWORKS uses Isometric, Trimetric, and Dimetric orientations. Normal To is a view perpendicular to any selected face or plane, equivalent to a plan view.
