|Navigating through the modeling space in Rhino can be done using the mouse and keyboard commands.|
- Shifts the view in the direction the viewport is dragged. In the Top, Right, and Front viewports, click and drag the right mouse button. In the Perspective viewport, press Shift while clicking and dragging the right mouse button. The icon in the toolbar is a hand.
- Rotates the model in the direction the viewport is dragged. In the Top, Right, and Front viewports, press Ctrl+Shift while dragging with the right mouse button. In the Perspective viewport, simply click and drag the right mouse button.
- Zooms in to see details or out to see the entire model. Either press Ctrl while dragging the right mouse button up and down, or rotate the mouse wheel. There are several other zoom options .
There are more ways to zoom to specific parts of the model than just using the scroll wheel. Type Zoom into the command line. These are the more useful options.
- This is the default option when the command is used. Click and drag a window to specify where in the model to zoom.
- Select objects to zoom to. This is helpful when you only want to rotate around one object to inspect it, or if it becomes difficult to rotate.
- Used to see all the objects in the model.
Viewports can also be named and saved for later use. This is helpful for setting specific views for rendering, or to jump to a specific object in a complex model. To save a view, right click on the viewport name, and click Set View->Named Views->Save . Click Restore to change the view to a saved one.
It's easy to get lost in a model, but it's also easy to return to a previous view. To step back through previous view changes, press the Home key. To step forward through view changes, press the End key.
