Multiple viewport windows
You can open as many viewports as you require for your modeling task. You can create multiple viewports to examine your 3D data from different angles, or to view multiple scenarios side by side. A viewport is created by selecting Window > New Viewport from the main menu.
The following lists the default viewports available:
- 3D View
- Top View
- Front View
- Side View
Additional viewport types can be created and managed using the Window > New Camera and Manage Cameras options. Camera changes and render settings affect all viewports of the same type. To create two 3D viewports using different rendering modes, you need to create a new viewport type.
