Print bed area on screen in 2.6.2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am used to using version 15 where the print area is nicely centered on the screen and I can see my work. But in 2.6.2, everything is at the way bottom of my screen no matter how tall or short I state my print area is. It's really annoying as I find it hard to see what I'm doing unless I rotate to completely vertical above the job. I feel like I'm missing something, any ideas?

Thanks!5a333d4a2384d_ScreenShot2017-07-25at10_05_10AM.thumb.png.41ecf731fabe0e028f6cb80d0a0ae319.png[/media]5a333d4a4b34a_ScreenShot2017-07-25at10_05_53AM.thumb.png.ae899b86af185f066bc64016eec4417f.png

In addition to shift right mouse drag, you can also zoom in with the "+" key on the keypad and zoom out with "-" but you have to get keyboard focus on the right control for that. Usually clicking anywhere in the graphical view (for example on the part) before you hit "+" works.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
