Rotating the Model

Within the Perspective view, the SWedge model can be rotated for viewing at any angle. The model is interactively rotated using the left mouse button, as follows:

  1. Press and hold the left mouse button anywhere in the Perspective view. Notice that the cursor changes to a "circular arrow" symbol to indicate that you may rotate the model.
  2. Keep the left mouse button pressed, and move the cursor around. The model is rotated according to the direction of movement of the cursor.
  3. To exit the rotation mode, release the left mouse button. Notice that the cursor reverts to the normal arrow cursor.

Repeat the above steps to rotate the model for viewing at any angle.

  • The wedge can also be moved out of the slope. In combination with rotation, this allows complete flexibility of viewing the slope and wedge from all possible angles.
  • Rotating the model only affects the Perspective view, while moving the wedge out of the slope affects all views (Top, Front, Side and Perspective).

Reset Rotation

To reset the rotation to the default viewing angle, select the Reset View option from the View menu or the right-click menu. This will reset the viewing angle of the model in the Perspective view, to the default viewing angle which is automatically determined by SWedge. The Reset View option also resets all zooming and panning.
