Viewing Along a Normal To a Plane

This task explains how to view an object along a perpendicular to a selected plane.
  1. Select View > Modify > Normal View or click Normal View in the View toolbar.

  2. Select a plane.

    The object is projected onto the selected plane so you can now view along a normal to the plane.
    Before After

If you select an element other than a plane, the object is projected onto an imaginary plane tangent to the selected element. This plane is created at the point where you clicked and is set parallel to the screen.
