I am working on a series of isometric explosion drawings. I’ve done one explosion in the default isometric view, but now I need to do an explosion from the opposite side of the model. I’ve tried using the arrow keys and arrow keys, but that’s not helping. I need to rotate the view about the Y axis and then save the new view. How do I do that? It was a no brainer in NX, but I’m at my wits end here. I’m about ready to chuck this POS software out the window.
Use the Alt key and click on the y-axis on your coordinate system icon (red, green, blue arrows, usually lower left) you model will spin about which ever axis you click by 15° (or whatever increment you have set in options)
To save view
In the “view orientation” select the “new view” icon (looks like a little telescope with and asterisk above and to the right) then just give a name. I would not "reset your standard views as JM suggested as it seems like you only need additional iso-type views
Above is a snippet.
