Viewing Objects against the Ground

Ground lets you visually insert a plane at the ground level of your document, thus enabling you to recognize when your document is viewed the right way up.

When you first access a document, the plane parallel or tangent to the bottom point of your document is considered to be the ground.

This task shows you how to show and hide the ground.
Open the document Search1.CATProduct.
  1. Select View > Ground.

    The ground plane is displayed in the geometry area.
    Note that if you want to hide the ground, simply repeat the same step.
  2. Drag (left mouse button) the ground up or down to a new location...

  3. ...then release the mouse button: the ground is repositioned as defined.
