Zoom, Rotate & Pan
Using Bend-Tech's products for the first time, users may want to know how to control the view of their part or project with their mouse. This page shows how to zoom your design in and out, rotate the design on the screen and pan the design to a new location on the screen.
If you'd like to zoom in on a part of the design, first make sure to click once in the display screen.
Then, hover your cursor over the portion of the design you'd like to zoom and scroll the wheel on your mouse.
Scrolling the wheel upwards will make the design smaller and scrolling the wheel downwards will make it larger. This is the default setting.
If you'd like to invert the mouse zoom function (so that scroll up=larger and scroll down=smaller), simply check the Invert Mouse Wheel Zoom check box in the TOOLS-->OPTIONS menu under the GENERAL tab and SAVE the setting.
You must restart the software in order for this change to take effect.
If you'd like to rotate the design in the display screen, first click and hold the right button on your mouse and move it in the direction you'd like to rotate the design.
This works best when you click and hold as your cursor is located on a tube or point in the design. The location you choose will be the axis that the design will rotate around.
If you'd like to pan (re-locate) the design in the display screen, first click and hold both mouse buttons and move the design to a new location.
Then, release the buttons to place the design where it will be.
This works best when you click and hold as your cursor is located on a tube or point in the design.
This will also work by clicking the wheel in on your mouse.
