Step 1. Position the part or assembly in your view-port to the desired orientation.
In this example, I have replaced the standard Front view of the assembly with an “odd” isometric just to show that it could be done. This works for both parts and assemblies. All other views are projections of this current view.
If you want to get back to where you started, simply press the space bar again, bringing up that same menu, and choose the icon for “Restoring the Views” back to their original orientation.
I hope you find this quick tip useful. Remember: it’s the little things!
