FabriCAM Software Mouse Navigation for the CAD Feature (Part 5) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam cad mouse navigation

While we are looking at ways of Navigation, the Mouse Navigation feature is in my opinion the best way to go about.

That being said, you will find that you very often end up using a few different combinations of Navigation methods.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.

Hi guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at navigating your pad feature with your mouse, and this will be for fabric camp software. But for that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we head into the programme here. So now we're finally on our mouths navigation. Now, in my opinion, this is one of the most useful ones. I use it the most because I use quite a few different three D applications and a lot of times this is quite universal. And if it's not, you get the hang of it quick. Now you can use the widget and the three D widget. I use, um, some of these features of this widget quite often, but most of them so like a centre to home, I use a lot and and maybe the fitting. But most of the time I will be using mouse, uh, navigation as it's a way more simple, and I'm comfortable with it. Now, what we're gonna do is we're first gonna cover the basics here. So we've got the rotation, Um, panning and zooming. Those two of those three are our primary once we're gonna be looking at So now the first thing we can do when it comes to rotation and all of these ones are gonna work around the middle mouse button. So if you have a mouse with the wheel, if you click and hold that middle wheel, it's a middle mouse button, so it will do operations, so not to rotate. I'm gonna just click and hold the middle mouse button by itself, and then it is going to rotate our canvas for us. As you can see, it rotates around the centre of our view, which is handy. And then let's try and close to the centre, then rotating in a circle clockwise or counterclockwise. A bit tricky. So then what you want to do is go far to the right to do the same thing, and then you go up and down. Then you can rotate it clockwise and counterclockwise. It's going to centre that again, zoom out a bit, and then next thing we have is zooming. Now we've got two different options. We can use here. The most common one, in my opinion, is the wheel mouse. You just take it and you wheel it forward and backwards. Then it will zoom in and zoom out. And keep in mind this one is relevant to your cross there or your mouse cursor where that is located. So if I want to zoom the top right corner, I'll put my mouse there and zoom towards that same way. If I zoom out, I'm gonna go. This side is gonna go in reverse. So just keep that in mind. That can be quite tricky. But once you get the hang of it also rocks. Then the next zoom we have is if we keep shifting and we'll hold our middle mouse. But then, like we did for rotating, it will zoom in and out. But this is relevant to the centre. So no matter where I put my mouse, it will zoom to the centre. So this is nice. When you combine it with panning, then you can do this, which will leave us with our next one, which is panning So for panning. What you want to do is you want to keep control in right on the shift, and then when you hold your mouse middle mouse button, it will pan our canvas or are designed for us. So now keep in mind. This is moving the actual three D space and not the designs. So this is not adjusting the location of this design, this design or stay the same location you can see at the bottom Here. It's about 00 if we look at the bottom right now, if I had to move this and I go there at a stall about 00, I mean, it should still be exactly the same. So that is it on panning. So if we just quickly recap again so we've got the three main operators. We've got rotation, which is your middle mouse button you'll be using. Then we've got zooming, which is our mouse wheel or keeping shift and middle mouse button. You move your mouse up and down, we'll do that, and then we have panning, which is controlled plus middle mouse button, and then you can move it around. So every time you pan, you can just leave the middle mouse button when you buy location in your life. but keep controlling. Yeah, otherwise, that is it on our mouths navigation. Like I said, this is by far the most handy for me. So definitely consider giving this some practise because it will save you a lot of time. And it's universal between the programme and the actual cared side, which is nice, but yeah, otherwise, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za hat settles it. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate. You're searching on the top, right? If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward to simply go Yeah, requested training video, but in the mini form. And then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and just
