Navigating the Model

Get started with our 3D Model by learning how to rotate, zoom, pan and select.

Rotating

To rotate the model, drag your finger across the screen on iPad, or hold left click and drag your cursor across the screen on Mac or Windows. With the Mac touchpad you can press down and drag with one finger.  Drag left and right to rotate the model, or up and down to get a higher or lower angle view. The model will rotate around the point where you begin to drag, giving you full control over the rotation.

Zooming

To zoom in on iPad, place two fingers close together on the screen and spread them apart on iPad. On Mac or Windows, scroll to zoom your view in or out or use the plus and minus keys on your keyboard. To zoom back out, place two fingers apart on the screen and pinch them together. With the Mac touchpad you press down with two fingers and spread apart to zoom, or pinch in together to zoom out.

Panning

To pan around the model without rotating, place two fingers on the iPad screen and move them together in the same direction, or hold right click while dragging your mouse across the screen on Mac or Windows. Alternatively, hold shift while clicking and dragging across the screen to get the same effect. This is particularly useful when zoomed in. With the Mac touchpad you can press down with two fingers and drag together to pan.
