Y/Z Axis up in View Orientation for SolidWorks 2020

dateJune 26, 2020

SOLIDWORKS 2020 now gives you the option to specify which axis(Y/Z) to use for the Up Axis. Note that this will change the orientation of any standard orthogonal, named and child views in drawings of the model. So how do we go about changing this axis?

Just do the following:

  1. Press “Space” bar on your keyboard to show the View Orientation menu
  2. Choose “Apply Y-up views” or “Apply Z-up views”
