Standard views introduction

SketchUp provides several pre-defined standard point of views for your convenience. These point of views are (from left-to-right in the image below):

  • Isometric (Shift+1),
  • Top (Shift+2),
  • Front (Shift+4),
  • Right (Shift+6),
  • Back (Shift+5),
  • Left (Shift+7), and
  • Bottom (Shift + 3, not pictured).

Select a Standard View from Views Toolbar (Microsoft Windows), Standard Views Toolbar (Mac OS X) or the Camera menu.

Tip: The standard views can be used with a parallel projection to produce elevation, plan, and section drawings.
