Shaded and textured view styles

Use the shaded and textured view buttons to toggle between textures being visible in the model or not.

Orthographic views

You can now view your model in orthographic projection to get clean elevations and diagram-friendly views. Click on the Orthographic button to toggle between the Orthographic and Perspective modes. You can then navigate to Front and Side views to view 2D elevations. This is also useful for creating 3D orthographic diagrams.
