In this video, I give 3 great tips for rotating the contents of AutoCAD in Model space when using Lt.
- How to use Model space viewports.
- Rotating a Model space viewport.
- How to save your custom named viewports.
This is a follow up to my previous post that explains how to rotate paper space layout views. We will be using some tools from the View Ribbon and then adding a toolset that you may not know even exists!
Rotating Model Space Viewports
In the full version of AutoCAD rotating model space is a simpler process as it is designed to work in a 3D environment, making use of the UCS, (User Coordinate System icon), a View cube tool and various other interactive methods.
In AutoCAD Lt there are also various methods to rotate the model space and these tend to be a bit geeky so I will be showing you what I think is an easier way.
Once we have set up model space view ports we will explore how to save sets of viewports or single focussed viewports; this is a great way to continue working on a drawing at convenient angles or being able to quickly move to named areas of a building or an assembly.
