I am using SketchUp to draw a 2D floor plan. I can easily set the camera view as required by using Camera/Standard Views/Top.
It would be very useful to be also able to rotate the view (rotate the camera around its axis of view) by 90 °. Unfortunately the only suitable single-step tool for this seems to be Camera/Orbit which has these disadvantages:
- The Orbit tool does not snap according to the Enable Angle Snapping setting (or other similar). I would like to do a perfect 90° rotation to avoid jagged and tilted lines.
- With the Orbit tool I am not sure if a did rotate only around the blue axis (perpendicular to my drawing plane). Otherwise the 2D image gets distorted.
- It seems that it is not possible to control the Orbit tool from the keyboard.
I have found this multi-step solution:
For all the rotations I would like to use I can create scenes and then I can use PageUp / PageDown to switch them but the initial configuration is not as simple as I would like. Is not there a better solution (a free extension)?
