Quickly Change Views in SolidWorks
by John Koop, SolidWorks Specialist, TEDCF Publishing
This is a quick tip on how to quickly change views in SolidWorks.
While in part or assembly mode, you can quickly change the view orientation by simply holding the Ctrl key down and pressing the number keys 1-7 on your keyboard. Each number represents a different view
Ctrl + 1 = Front View
Ctrl + 2 = Back View
Ctrl + 3 = Left View
Ctrl + 4 = Right View
Ctrl + 5 = Top View
Ctrl + 6 = Bottom View
Ctrl + 7 = Isometric View
The last icon is the Link Views option.
Using these simple key commands make toggling through the various views much easier.
