Alin’s SW2013 Pick of the Day – Enhanced Viewport Orientation (1)

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated October 3, 2012


There are so many modifications done to the interface for the viewport orientation in SolidWorks 2013, that I decided to present them in three different articles.

The video you will watch today concentrates on the new View Selector tool. While I believe that SolidWorks can still improve the functionality of this tool in the future, by making the selector cube constrained to the model, I am sure that all SolidWorks users, especially the new ones, will benefit from using it the way it is.

Note: Included in this video are instructions on how to turn on and off the View Selector in case you need that.

So now that you have learnt about the new View Selector, will you use it?
