Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to change the view of the board (or component) in 3D so that you are looking straight down from above (perpendicular), with zero rotation.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB Editor and the PCB Library Editor in 3D Layout Mode by:

  • Choosing the View » Zero Rotation command from the main menus.
  • Using the 0 keyboard shortcut.
The current viewing mode for the PCB document can be changed using the corresponding commands from the main View menu. To switch to 3D Layout Mode, use the command of the same name, or use the 3 keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, the 3D view will be changed, if necessary, so that you are viewing the board from above and with no rotation.

Tips

  1. In addition, you can use the applicable drop-down field on the PCB Standard toolbar (PCB Editor) or the PCB Lib Standard toolbar (PCB Library Editor) to quickly choose from a set of predefined 3D views when viewing your board (or library components) in 3D.


Applied Parameters: To=Rotate90

Summary

This command is used to change the view of the board (or component) in 3D so that you are looking straight down from above (perpendicular) with 90 degree (clockwise) rotation in the X-plane.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB Editor and the PCB Library Editor in 3D Layout Mode by:

  • Choosing the View » 90 Degree Rotation command from the main menus.
  • Using the 9 keyboard shortcut.
The current viewing mode for the PCB document can be changed using the corresponding commands from the main View menu. To switch to 3D Layout Mode, use the command of the same name, or use the 3 keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, the 3D view will be changed, if necessary, so that you are viewing the board from above and with 90 degree (clockwise) rotation in the X-plane.

Tips

  1. In addition, you can use the applicable drop-down field on the PCB Standard toolbar (PCB Editor) or the PCB Lib Standard toolbar (PCB Library Editor) to quickly choose from a set of predefined 3D views when viewing your board (or library components) in 3D.


Applied Parameters: To=RotateOrtho

Summary

This command is used to change the view of the board (or component) in 3D so that you are looking at the board from an orthogonal perspective.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB Editor and the PCB Library Editor in 3D Layout Mode by:

  • Choosing the View » Orthogonal Rotation command from the main menus.
  • Using the 8 keyboard shortcut.
The current viewing mode for the PCB document can be changed using the corresponding commands from the main View menu. To switch to 3D Layout Mode, use the command of the same name, or use the 3 keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, the 3D view will be changed, if necessary, so that you are viewing the board from an orthogonal perspective (looking from above, and from the left).

Tips

  1. In addition, you can use the applicable drop-down field on the PCB Standard toolbar (PCB Editor) or the PCB Lib Standard toolbar (PCB Library Editor), to quickly choose from a set of predefined 3D views when viewing your board (or library components) in 3D.
