How to view slanted surface straight on


#1

As an example I’ve drawn a pyramid. I wish to get a 2-D view of the sides so I can make dimensioned drawings of the sides. I have aligned the axis with the center line and edge of one side with the vertical (blue) axis perpendicular to the side. But when I look at the top view, using standard camera view, it is not looking directly perpendicular to the surface.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Did you try right clicking on the face and selecting Align View?

Thank you DaveR. I am very new to this tool. I knew it must be something obvious and easy but my searching turned up nothing. Enjoy your evening.

To DaveR I just want to say that you absolutely rock. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve found your answers in the forum helpful, and your explanations are always very clear.
