VPOINT command

Changes the 3D viewpoint.

BricsCAD Lite; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM



Changes the 3D viewpoint to change the view of the model through specifying several options.

Note: It is faster, and easier, to use the LookFrom widget to change the 3D viewpoint.


Right-click in the drawing area to open the Set Viewpoint dialog box. For more information, see the related article Set Viewpoint dialog box.

Note: The dialog box opens only if perspective is off.
