How to setting Orbit Constraint in Creo Parametric?

Hi

I google method to set Orbit Constraint Navigation in Creo Parametric but there're no guide. 

Are there this setting in Creo Parametric?

 

Thank

Hi,

please described, what is Orbit Constraint Navigation.


Martin Hanák

Hi Martin;

When you use mouse to Orbit, they will keep the ground and rotate the view around object. In other software as Fusion 360, It's called Orbit Constraint.

Hi,

please try Fly Through mode.

See http://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/usascii/index.html#page/fundamentals%2Ffundamentals%2Ffund_four_sub%2FTo_Fly_Through_a_Model.html%23 help page.

Hi @MartinHanak 

Thank suggestion. I think Fly Through different with Orbit Constraint.

Fly Through is a view mode.

Orbit Constraint is normal orbit in design environment. It keep the ground stable instead of free orbit all model.

Hi,

please attach picture of your model and describe how you can spin it.

Hi @MartinHanak 

I find this video describe different between Constrained Orbit with Free Orbit In Fusion 360

Are there feature like this in Creo Parametric?

Hi,

in Creo there is no exact alternative of Constrained Orbit available.

You can limit rotation using following information.

View tab > Save Orientations > Reorient > Type = Preferences

enables you to set spin center position and orientation (if you select the right reference)

Then View tab > Save Orientations > Reorient > Dynamic orient

enables you to rotate about red/green/blue spin center axis.
