Model View

Model View creates a single view based on a predefined view orientation. The Model View PropertyManager appears when you create a new drawing, or when you insert a model view into a drawing document.

You select an orientation for the view from the view names in the model document as listed in the Orientation dialog box:
  • Standard views (Front, Top, Isometric, and so on)
  • Annotation views - indicated by an A on the view icon (*Front PM_Model_View_Annotation_View.gif, for example).
  • Current Model View (available only for open models and only until you place the view)
  • Custom views that you saved by name. The entire model is displayed, even if the selected view orientation displays a partial, zoomed-in view.

Example: Using a Model View

The drawing shows a Top View, an Isometric View, and a User-defined Model View.
