SketchUp Camera Tool – Change the View of your Design

Simul Chowdhury: Editor

In SketchUp, you have to have a complete idea about the View tool since it gives your design an ultimate angle. A good designer earns an in-depth knowledge of how to use every feature of view to make their design the best. Camera tool generally works in two ways – one that jumps views from one point to another such as back, left, right, and from; another moves camera position from one point to another such as zoom and pan.

The view tool stays in the Camera option from where you can navigate the position of your model visually. Take a note of the content below that provides you with a comprehensive idea of what View tool offers.

• Iso: it is for giving your design a slightly angled front view. It has a specific application in your design with adding perspective and relationship of the project.
• Top: as the name says, it is for the top view of your model. Sometimes, Top view creates a flat look of your model. Use Zoom in and out to recognize the actual distance of your model.

• Front: the front view proves to be the best option when you start designing on SketchUp first.
• Right: the Right tool allows you to jump from back to front, right and left views.
• Back: Back gets less attention as compared to the other sides of your design. But the back view is as essential as the other view of the model.
• Orbit tool: with this tool, you can see the view from any direction of your model. Navigating the application is also easier. To observe the different views of the model, you need to drag your model to the direction you want to see.

• Pan Tool: Pan tool helps you move the model from one point to another. You will proceed along with the gradual move of the design. Using the tool is like grabbing and dragging a model.
• Zoom: the tool used has been used in the same way as it was used. Zoom in for observing the smallest detailing and Zoom out for view the model in a biz size.
• Zoon Extent: this feature generally zooms out your model to the maximum extent.

Viewing your design from right direction is as much essential as a flawless design. The above-said tool will help you choose the right angle and sites you want to observe your design. To know how to use the camera angle more prominently, visit
