Summary

The View Configuration panel is used to configure the color and workspace visibility options in the Multi-board Assembly editor. It is also used to control the display of the section view, and the section panels.

To learn more about Multi-board assemblies, refer to Creating the Physical Multi-board Assembly.

Panel Access

When a Multi-board assembly document is active, the panel can be accessed in the following ways:

  • Click View » Panels » View Configuration.
  • Click the button at the bottom-right of the workspace and select the View Configuration option.
  • Use the L shortcut key.

Content and Use

The panel content is divided into three sections:

  • Display Options - options to enable and configure the projection of the Multi-board assembly. 
  • Section View - options to enable and configure the section view feature, and control the display of the section panels.
  • System Colors - options to configure the visibility and color of layers.

In the Multi-board Assembly editor, each workspace axis, and its corresponding plane, is assigned a color:

  • Red - X axis, viewing into the Y-Z plane. You can think of this as the front or rear view.
  • Green - Y axis, viewing into the X-Z plane. You can think of this as the left or right view.
  • Blue - Z axis, viewing into the X-Y plane. You can think of this as the top or bottom view.
