Part orientation in drawing views

Part orientation in drawing views

In single-part, assembly, and cast unit drawings, you can adjust the orientation of the parts in the drawing views by selecting an appropriate coordinate system and by rotating the parts. You can also separately set the viewing direction of columns, beams and bracings in assembly drawings. The project north setting also affects part orientation.
