Have you ever wanted to rotate a model in a drawing view like you can in eDrawings? SolidWorks should really add this functionality. Oh wait….they did.
Inside your drawing, if you go to View>Modify>3D Drawing View, you will be asked which view you want to rotate.
Once you choose the view, you will be able to rotate, pan, and zoom.
Now you can see the back side of your model in real time.
With it rotated you can open the Orientation View box and create a custom view. When you go back to the model, the custom view will be there for you to use.
What a great tool. Thank you SolidWorks.
