Control the 3D Projection Style

You can view both parallel and perspective projection of a 3D model.

- Overview of Parallel
and Perspective Views
You can create realistic visual effects in a drawing by defining either parallel or perspective projections of a model.

- Define a Perspective
Projection (DVIEW)
Perspective projections require a distance between a theoretical camera and a target point. Small distances produce severe perspective effects; large distances produce milder effects.

- Define a Parallel
Projection
You can define a parallel projection.

- Choose Preset 3D
Views
You can select predefined standard orthographic and isometric views by name or description.

- Define a 3D View
with Coordinate Values or Angles
You can define a viewing direction by entering the coordinate values of a point or the measures of two angles of rotation.

- Change to a View of
the XY Plane
You can change the current viewpoint to a plan view of the current UCS, a previously saved UCS, or the WCS.
