Navigating a Model in Orbit Mode

In Orbit mode you can rotate the model, pan and zoom in and out, as well as select and hide objects.

Opening a model

Start by selecting the model in the Model Stack to open it in the viewer. This automatically opens it in Orbit mode.

The Navigation options showing Orbit and Walkthrough modes.

There are several ways of viewing a model:

  • Rotating the model in three dimensions: hold the left mouse button down while dragging the mouse.
  • Panning: press ALT and hold the left mouse button down while dragging it in any direction.
  • Zooming in/out: press CTRL and hold the left mouse button down while moving the mouse forward or towards you.

There are other options you can use to manipulate objects in a model, such as hiding the selected object, hiding everything else, zooming, and making objects transparent.

To use these options, select an object, then right-click it to open the Object menu.
