Hi guys,

I've seen some posts on this but I didn't quite understand them, maybe I'm a touch slow on this.

In any case I want to be able to set the camera angle manually but not using the mouse.

For example I'd like to view an object from the positive Z axis with the Y axis pointing down and the X axis pointing to the right.

Any thoughts?

Hello Brett,

I have attached a photo showing the view as requested. One small thing is you will have to view it from the - Z-axis rather than + Z-axis

You will need to use your arrow keys. First, from the isometric view, click on the positive Z-axis. This will make your positive Y-axis point up and your X-axis point to the right. Then, using the up arrow key, press it until the letter Z is no longer visible and there is a dot at the corner of the coordinate axis. This way, you then know it is pointing straight out.

Hope this helps.
