When you think "wheel," do you think this?
In a previous blog article, I provided an overview of new features in Autodesk Design Review 2008. This posting follow up on that and provides additional information for the 2D Navigation Wheel.
The user interface for Autodesk Design Review has been updated to make a set of "wheels" available to the user:
|view 2d sheets
|view assemblies or individual parts
|conduct a virtual walk-through
|examine 3D objects or conduct virtual walk-throughs of architectural models
These wheels are divided into sections referred to as wedges. Clicking in a wedge activates functionality identified for that wedge. The 2D Navigation Wheel is a tracking menu that contains Pan and Zoom wedges, providing the same functionality that is provided by the Pan and Zoom tools found on the toolbar. The 2D Navigation Wheel saves you time and clicks by combining these two tools on a single interface.
