How to add a 3D view

You are here:

Drew adds one 3D view and one or more 2D views to every drawing sheet by default. You can even add a scaled flat pattern view.

You can remove this view by selecting the option None in the task pane. AutoFit then finds the best position for all views again.

Current model view

You can also switch to the current model view. This means the view will use the same orientation as the part/assembly currently has.

SOLIDWORKS stores the view orientation. If you rotate the part or assembly afterwards, the view rotation does not change.
