Saving 3D Camera Views - X12

Recommended Posts

I just installed X12 yesterday.  When I do a 3D view and want to save it I used to go to the 3D dropdown menu on the tool bar and save the camera view.  Tried to do this yesterday and the save camera option has vanished on X12.  Can someone tell me how we do it now?  I looked on the x12 Manual online and it shows it as doing it the same way as before but it just isn't there anymore.

Yeah they changed that. Don't have access to chief now but there's a menu item in the top toolbar that's used to save, and "save as" views including plan views and cameras.

Yeah, you used to go on the top toolbar and click on "3D" then the drop down menu had a "save active camera" line.  It is no longer there.

Found it. 

 

Open a plan in X12 and then go to customize your toolbars.  In the 3D configuration there is a button for "Active View Tools".  Click on that and it gives you 3 more buttons.  Add whichever ones you want to your toolbar.

"Tools>Active View>Save Active View" and "Tools>Active View>Save Active View As..."  should do what you want.

 

If you are using the installed toolbars, they should already appear on your toolbar.  If you migrated legacy toolbars forward, they may or may not already be on your toolbar but you can always add them using Customize Toolbars if you need to add them.

 

For more information about what's new and different in X12, you might want to check out this document:

I never migrate my old toolbars. Let the program install the new toolbars then compare to the old and customize the new accordingly.
