A Projection view is an orthographic projection of another view’s
geometry along a horizontal or vertical direction from the parent
• Projected view characteristics:
– Is child of view from which it is
– Orientation is 90° from parent view
– Third angle or First angle
Figure 3 – Example General
A Projection view is an orthographic projection of another view’s geometry
along a horizontal or vertical direction from the parent view. The orientation
of the projection view is always 90° from the parent view, and its scale is
dependent on the parent view. If the orientation of the parent view is updated,
the orientation of the child projection views also updates.
You can either insert projection views by clicking Projection
Model Views group in the Layout tab, or by selecting a drawing view,
right-clicking, and selecting Insert Projection View. In either case, you must
specify the parent view from which the projection view projects. When you
create a projection view, it is assigned a default name based upon the
direction of projection.
The default projection type for projection views is Third Angle. If desired, the
projection type can be changed to First Angle.
