Working with Tiled Views in Model Workspace

You can divide the drawing window into multiple views. Each view can contain a unique view of the drawing. This lets you view different areas of the drawing, whether they are plan views in different detailing grades, or the model from different viewpoints in 3D space.

You can work in only one view at a time, the current view.

Tiled views do not overlap on the workspace like drawing windows can. It is just as if you divided the drawing window into two, three, or four rectangular areas. You can arrange these areas in several combinations.

A group of tiled views is called a ViewTile configuration.

You can define, save, and restore ViewTile configurations using the View Tiles dialog box.

To define a ViewTile configuration:

  1. Click View > View Tiles > View Tiles Manager (or type ViewTiles).
  2. Under Type, select New.
  3. Under Default configurations, select a ViewTile configuration you want to use or store under a name.

    *Active Model Configuration* lets you use the configuration as is when you opened the dialog box.

  4. Under Orientation, select:
    • 2D: Initiates all ViewTiles of the configuration you define with the current view.
    • 3D: Lets you define standard orthographic or isometric 3D views in Replace view with for each ViewTile.
  5. Under Apply to, select:
    • Active View Tile: Applies the ViewTile configuration to the current view. You can further subdivide standard ViewTile configurations.
    • Display: Applies the ViewTile configuration to the entire drawing.

To save a ViewTile configuration under a name:

  1. Click View > View Tiles > View Tiles Manager (or type ViewTiles).
  2. Under Type, select New.
  3. Under Name, type the name of the ViewTile configuration to save.
  4. Under Default configurations, select a default configuration.
  5. If you want different 3D views represented in the views:
    1. Under Orientation, select 3D.
    2. Under Replace view with, select an orthographic or isometric view to display in the specified view.
  6. Click Save.

To restore a named ViewTile configuration:

  1. Click View > View Tiles > View Tiles Manager (or type ViewTiles).
  2. Under Type, select Named.
  3. Under Named configurations, select a name.
  4. Click OK.

To delete a named ViewTile configuration:

  1. Click View > View Tiles > View Tiles Manager (or type ViewTiles).
  2. Under Type, select Named.
  3. Under Named configurations, right-click a name and click Delete.
  4. Click OK.

To join views of a ViewTile configuration:

  1. Type -Viewport.
  2. Specify the Join option.

    Two adjacent ViewTiles combine into one ViewTile. The resulting ViewTile inherits the view of the dominant ViewTile.
