You can display multiple different scene views simultaneously as tabbed windows within the main window. See the following instructions to open, close and save scene views.

Open 3D views

  1. In the Project Workspace, go to the Structure tab.
  2. In the Structure tree, do one of the following:
    To Do this
    Open a 3D view of the entire structure
    • Double-click Structure.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D solver view of the entire structure
    1. Right-click Structure.

    2. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D view of a sub model
    1. Click the + sign next to Sub Models.

      The existing sub models are viewed.

    2. Double-click a sub model.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D solver view of a sub model
    1. Click the + sign next to Sub Models.

      The existing sub models are viewed.

    2. Right-click a sub model.

    3. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D view of a sub structure
    1. Click the + sign next to Sub Structures.

      The existing sub structures are viewed.

    2. Double-click a sub structure.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D solver view of a sub structure
    1. Click the + sign next to Sub Structures.

      The existing sub structures are viewed.

    2. Right-click a sub structures.

    3. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D view of a single member from within another view
    1. Hover the mouse over the desired member to highlight it.

    2. Right-click the member.

    3. In the context menu, select Open [element name] view.

    To Do this
    Open a 3D view of a single member in the Project Workspace
    1. Click the + sign next to Members.

    2. Expand the required sub branches similarly.

    3. Right-click the required member.

    4. In the context menu, select Open view.

Open 2D views

  1. In the Project Workspace, go to the Structure tab.
  2. In the Structure tree, do one of the following:
    ToDo this
    Open a 2D view of a construction level
    1. Click the + sign next to Levels.

      The existing construction levels are viewed.

    2. Double-click the desired level.

    To Do this
    Open a 2D solver view of a construction level
    1. Click the + sign next to Levels.

      The existing construction levels are viewed.

    2. Right-click the desired level.

    3. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

    To Do this
    Open a 2D view of a frame
    1. Click the + sign next to Frames.

      The existing frames are viewed.

    2. Double-click the desired frame.

    To Do this
    Open a 2D solver view of a frame
    1. Click the + sign next to Frames.

      The existing frames are viewed.

    2. Right-click the desired frame.

    3. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

    To Do this
    Open a 2D view of a sloped plane
    Note:

    Before you can view a 2D view of a sloped plane, you must create a sloped plane in your model.

    1. Click the + sign next to Slopes.

      The existing slopes are viewed.

    2. Double-click the desired slope.

    To Do this
    Open a 2D solver view of a sloped plane
    Note:

    Before you can view a 2D view of a sloped plane, you must create a sloped plane in your model.

    1. Click the + sign next to Slopes

      The existing frames are viewed.

    2. Right-click the desired slope.

    3. In the context menu, select Open solver view.

Save, open and delete view configurations

Once a scene view has been adjusted to show a specific area of the model, you can save the scene view to a view configuration.

Note:

You can use view configurations in two ways:

  • Include them as views in model reports.

    In this case, the view configurations retain the scene content settings that were in place when you saved the view configuration.

  • Re-open them in a new scene view at a subsequent time.

    In this case, the view configurations adopt the scene content settings that are currently in place in the scene view.

According to your needs, do one of the following:
To Do this
Save a view configuration
  1. Right-click anywhere in the view.

  2. In the context menu, select Save View Configuration...

    The View name dialog box opens.

  3. Name the view.

  4. Click OK.

To Do this
Open a saved view configuration
  1. On the Home tab, click Manage View Configurations.

  2. Select the desired view configuration.

  3. Click Open View.

  4. Click OK.

To Do this
Delete a view configuration
  1. On the Home tab, click Manage View Configurations.

  2. Select the desired view configuration.

  3. Click Delete.

  4. Click OK.
