Space Tools

There are multiple asset viewing features in Revaly that make your collaboration process seamless.

Camera Type

You can edit the camera type on your asset to either orthographic or perspective. Here is an example of the difference:

Perspective View Orthographic View
Perspective view Orthographic view

To switch between camera types, locate the eye icon on the left-hand side of your screen to easily toggle between camera viewing types. Then select the camera perspective you want to use! You can change this choice at any time.

View Cube

The View Cube is a useful tool to ease the viewing of your asset. The View Cube is used to view your asset on a specific face. The cube will move as you move your asset.

View Cube Demo

The View Cube is located in the top right corner of your screen. To use the View Cube, click on any one of the 26 pre-calculated positions to be smoothly taken right to that view — or click and hold on the directional arrows to smoothly rotate the part in the direction of your choosing.
