    Tips & Tricks, #tinkertogether


    There’s a button in Tinkercad that can change the 3D view of your design to a flatter “orthogonal” view. Compared to the default 3D-like appearance of the “perspective” view, orthogonal offers a more natural, birds-eye look at your model. To return to the default view, simply press the button again to toggle back. 

    When viewing a design directly from the top, the orthogonal view provides a blueprint-like layout of your design, useful for troubleshooting size and alignment issues that can sometimes be obscured in the default “perspective” view.
