save and restore views

Hi, All!  I'm coming from Inventor, which has a cute feature called a "view cube" which allows the user to select any of 6 faces of a cube, or any of 8 corners of the cube and orients the model view to that.  I'd like to set some saved views in NX11 to the corner (isometric) views.  I found a way (I think) to set the view, menu>view>operation>saveas

 

I can't find how to go to the saved view.  I tried searching the NX community, tried googling, but I apparently am not using the right terminology, 'cuz I get everything BUT how to go to the saved view! Man Frustrated

 

How is this done?  Thanx

Hi @lonesome-joe,

You can find all the views (OOTB + User Defined) under 'Model Views' node in the part navigator. Just double click on any view to make it as work view.

 

With active work view, select model views node > RMB > Add View or Add View Set. In this way you can create new user defined views directly from part navigator.

Hi @lonesome-joe,

 

One more option to check your custom view:

click right mouse button in your graphics area -> Orient view -> custom view

Hi,

Does this feature restore layer selection as well? I'd like to save certain views with some levels on, then another view with a different set of levels on.

Layers are not controlled by this command. What are you trying to show and not show by doing this? That may help someone find a solution to what you are trying to accomplish.

Not sure about auto saving but NX provides another option "Interval for Save Changes Reminder" in cutomer default , that gives reminder\aleart to user in fix time interval to save the part (whatever value user sets in customer defult).

RE: Auto-save

This has been discussed before.

Many Times.

UG used to have it (YEARS ago), but (pretty much) every user turned it off, as it would always save right when you were in the middle of doing something, so you would have to wait a couple minutes, and then try to remember what it is that you were intending on doing.

 

Although, with multi-threading, maybe the save could be done in a background thread, so the user can keep working while the part saves?
