View Set

Create view sets of the selected parts of a model. Each view set displays a parent view of the selected part in the orthographic view and child views in the orthographic or isometric view.

First, you need to create a drawing sheet.

View sets have construction history. When the object is updated, the view set is updated accordingly.

  1. On the ribbon, click the Drawing tab.
  2. Click the View Set icon.

    The modeling environment is displayed.
  3. Select one or more objects. Right-click to confirm the selection.
    The objects are displayed in the orthographic view. This is the parent view.
  4. Click to position the origin of the parent view.
  5. To create a child view, click an arrow.
    The child views associated with the corner arrows show isometric views. When you drag the parent view, the child views stay attached to the parent view.
    To remove a child view, click the corresponding arrow.
  6. To modify the view set, click Properties .
