A new update to this topic
That was a manual way to set up Isometric View in Creo Parametric. But by watching this video you learned to utilize View Manager Tool, Re-orient Tool and other navigation tools.
To set up Isometric View by default in Creo Parametric go options--Model Display--Model orientation and select Isometric in the dropdown of Default model orientation. That is so simple.
A true isometric view rotation about the horizontal is actually 35.2644 degrees. One cannot create that value in the orientation dialog. it is a real shame that we cannot simply dial in a -true- isometric.
Have a look at this document to see the Pro|Workaround required to get this right...
In short, you have to create a temp view from geometry and then create a new view from that state. I do this on the fly in parts and assemblies now. Once you define one -good- ISO view, you can achieve the other form the view manager dialog.
Thanks for comments. I was able to create a true isometric view with the help of orientation dialog box watch the following video
This is still not a true ISO but close enough for most.
You can zoom in about 40x and you will clearly see the error by negating the 4th digit.
I find that using the quick geomtery method is easy enough to do on the fly. Subsequent ISO views can be created from the 1st so no problem -and- if you use templates, there is no excuse not to do it right. You just have to remember that you have to create the TMP view from the geometry and the saved ISO from the TMP view. Then you can delete the geometry and datums without errors.
This is your Pro|WorkAround lesson for today.
Seriously, I don't accept "almost right" as acceptable when it comes to teaching opportunies. Again, that's just me and how I was raised.
In this day of double precision databases, why would PTC not update a lot of these dialogs to at least single precision accuracy?
I see your added comment on the "default" isometric. Since this is a blog to teach people, there is something that is important to know about setting the default view to isometric. Setting this will affect any view saved using the "default" setting as a reference. I learned back in Pro|E 2000i that this is a big mistake when someone opens the part and the default is set back to the installed default view.
Seriously... there are no shortcuts to -defining- an isometric view properly no matter how badly you want there to be.
