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.
