Viewports Overview

The Viewports are the main modelling and results viewing screens in RocSlope.

  • Three viewports show the model in orthogonal XY, ZX and YZ views (top/front/right).
  • The fourth viewport is the 3D perspective view.

The Split View (showing only two viewports) is the default viewport configuration. This can be customized in the Viewports tab of the Display Options dialog.
